    Yeah this is random and doesn't really matter, but man, every time the camera pans to Les Alexander sitting courtside....he's always got his legs crossed and you can see his bear ankles. I'm no fashion expert, but...seriously, where are his socks?

    Hey Les, dunno if you know this...but it's pretty chilly outside. Might wanna throw some socks on. If not for the warmth, at least do it for your appearance's sake. You look like an idiot with your bare ankles, not the owner of an NBA team. And seeing as how you're a multi-multi-millionaire...I'm sure you can afford some socks.

    :grin:

    I don't wear socks when I'm wearing casual clothes either. It Depends on the clothes. You don't wear socks with loafers for example unless they are of a very fine material and then need to barely cover the ankles. Were you wanting him to sport the Walt "the Wizard" Williams socks?

    Anyhow I'll let you get back to your rant.

    i've seen that, too. for the GSW game that i went to last year (the one where i sat behind the bench), i took a zoomed-in picture of Les, and saw the same sock-less leg-crossing pose.

    I know les loves this team and what not, but i really like the idea of a Mark Cuban type intensity owner. Sometimes i get a little discouraged at how unenthusiastic he SEEMS..

    It is perfectly fashionable to go without socks, especially with certain attires. I don't see what OP is complaining about.

    It's the socks that have the problem.

    I guess I'm just a Socks Only Fan, despite what GQ might say. ;)

    Regardless, just a silly observation....

    Good thing you wrote the clarification before the hate mail started pouring. Mark Cuban hate is a requirement to be a Rockets fan. Kind of like hating the Jazz, hating former ungrateful players, etc...

    Anyone else a Seinfeld fan? Well the socks, or lack of them, are what you can see...

    Les is a South Florida guy.

    Socks are purely optional in Boca.
