Is Jalen Green too feminine or "girly" to be a successful NBA player?

    I have been thinking a lot about this since he was drafted. Knowing that in general being too feminine is thought to be negative when a player is on the girly side with weak wrists. Like I said I have been thinking about this and am concerned and think it is worth having a conversation about. Personally, I hope he begins to focus more on basketball less on fashion.

    Go Rockets!

    I don’t care what he wears, do you.
    But……I do wish him and other players would focus more on ball and less on brand and image. Just personal preference

    To be honest I do care. If he were to wear something like this to the games on his way to the locker room I think it would help. A haircut would not hurt as well.

    No, this is dumb.

    His success or failure will have nothing to do with perceived femininity.

    Yeah, let’s get him some boots, cowboy hat, doubled up styrofoam cup a new grill and some 44s to complete the total Houston look

    Bust

    I don't need to wait two years for him to grow muscle to see how good he is

    Growing muscle will not help with fundamentals

    If anything gaining weight will make him slower and less athletic

    Total bust you'll see

    Josh Christopher will end up being a better Pro because he plays defense and is a better shooter than green

    Hell Brooks is better also

    Can ball for sure. But god this is hideous, “fashion” is dress up like the biggest idiot you can.

    The person I am mocking in this thread would just disregard the results regardless without any proof and would ask for pointless audits. So no vote!
