Look bitch, if I can keep myself in dress pumps and pencil skirts, I guess you can put on a motherfuckin' blazer once in a while

The NBA will take a drastic measure designed to improve its image after last year's player/fan brawl, they have just announced.

They're instituting a dress code for players at league events, including players on the bench.

Yes, it's that old centrist chestnut, that dressing the ill-bahaved in more conservative clothing will make them behave more conservatively. Remember Clinton going on about school uniforms in the State of the Union Address in 96? Same idea.

Predictably, some players are upset, saying that you can't judge a book by its cover, or that their clothes and their bling are an expression of who they are. But the best response comes from Marcus "50 million for 5 years" Camby of the Denver Nuggets:

"I don't see it happening unless every NBA player is given a stipend to buy clothes."

See? That's why we love them: their enduring humility and awareness of their fortunate station in life.
