If you were a professional NBA player and you made the majority of your income from endorsements or the E! network, but the league that you play in - essentially the reason that you're even famous - is currently in a strike with the majority of its players scraping together pennies from their last paychecks to make ends meet, would you A) meet with your teammates regularly and offer to help with little things like groceries and rent while the lockout continues, B) step to the forefront of the players union and take a strong stance for the benefit of your peers instead of cowtowing to the owners, or C) say f*ck 'em all and attend Fashion Week in New York City.
You bet your sweet Burberry-scented ass that you're going to Fashion Week. Just like the NBA's biggest stars, who instead of being concerned with the possibility of no season, made sure they were up to par on the latest from the top designers like that one guy, and the lady with one name, and that other dude. Me and fashion go together like Eddy Curry and exercise.
Check out more of LeBron James and the athletes who are more concerned with fashion than job security after the jump.

Dwyane Wade with Rocky Dennis and some guy from Prada.
"Oh my God, oh my God, a black guy got in..."
Dwyane Wade was hanging out with Amar'e Stoudemire the whole time. That means he's going to play for the Knicks, according to everything ESPN has ever taught me.
See? Scandal begins here.
"I hope they show the new hats soon!"
"Hey everyone, Andre Iguodala is here!" - Nobody.
He signed a deal with the swag devil.
Not pictured: La La Anthony taking her earrings and rings off to whoop Chrissy Teigen's ass.
"Hurrrrrrrr, my wife likes fashun."
With his wife, Adrienne (L), and Victoria's Secret model Selita Ebanks, who was dumped by Nick Cannon so he could marry a woman twice her age for money and jobs.
Making the same face as when Udonis Haslem comes in and actually plays defense.
With Samuel L. Jackson and Michael Pitt. Meanwhile, Brandon Bass was at a Taco Bell, working.
Wow, how'd they get this beefcake to show up?
"Dude, make me look good, I'm totes trying to nail Whitney Port."
With Scott Disdick, who has the most descriptive name in the history of men.
With his wife, Kim Kardashian, and his new fake in-laws.
"And I was like, Will you marry me? And everyone totally bought it!"
Soon after, she called the photographer a hater and said he was very ugly on the inside.
Models and free clothes. I'm so glad to see the NBA's top faces working hard to end this lockout.
