It goes across so many things, not just in fashion but your whole self. It’s so important to remember to be yourself, regardless of what others think,” the Oklahoma City Thunder point guard said.

I wear a combination of everything. I go with what I’m feeling and with what looks good, regardless of how much it is. I want to show people across the world that you don’t always have to wear high-end. Whatever it is, you can still be fashionable.”

The top 20 names on the list are largely made up of American NBA, MLB and NHL stars.

In number two is NFL star Victor Cruz while tennis stars Serena Williams and Roger Federer are next in third and fourth.
