    I am disgusted with the way certain Rockets with injuries inexplicably use the time to try to show off their exquisite fashion skills. They seem a bit too excited about not playing and appear to use the injury time as some sort of personal modeling runway. If an employee at work called in sick and then showed up looking like "Mr. Big Time Hollywood" only to watch his co-workers bust their tails doing his job that would likely be detrimental to his team. I feel that guys like Lin and Harden need to lower their egos, show some respect for their teammates and not make every injury turn into sideshows about them (aka the accountant & professor) that takeaway from the overall team focus of winning basketball games.

    so you'd rather injured players not show up to games or dress like they all aren't paid millions of dollars?

    Not sure if joking...

    But if serious (copied from wikipedia since I'm too lazy to dig further)

    Stern's dress code stated that all players must dress in business or conservative attire while arriving and departing during a scheduled game, on the bench while injured, and when conducting official NBA business (press interviews, charity events, etc.). The new dress code banned fashions most often associated with hip-hop culture, specifically: jerseys, jeans, hats, do-rags, t-shirts, large jewelry, sneakers and Timberland style boots.[3]

    This particular clothing is not allowed to be worn by players to interviews, games (on and off the bench), charity events, or any other occasion affiliated with the NBA or the NBDL. Violators of the dress code are fined and may be suspended with repeat offenses.[4] The dress code was developed with the intention of combating image problems that have plagued the NBA in recent history.

    Under current NBA dress regulations, if a player does not dress to participate in a game, he must dress in a manner suitable for a coach. In the NBA, a suit or a sport coat is required for coaches,[3] but a necktie is not required.

    Yeah, there's a DRESS CODE. All they're doing is adding glasses to it.

    And why would an employee at your work call in sick and still show up? Terrible example. In that scenario it is detrimental, but only because that person is suppose to be too sick to even show up at all. If that person was required to show up and not participate, would you want them wearing some sweats and a t shirt in an office environment?

    They don't need to look like they are making a pit stop at the Rockets game on the way to the MTV awards. I am not asking them to dress like paupers, but at a minimum they should give the appearance of being upset that they are getting paid millions of dollars and not contributing towards helping their team win games (while injured). Lin and Harden are my two favorite Rockets, but I sense that they both lack the necessary focus, at times, to bring a NBA title back to Houston.

    These people have lives outside of basketball - people need to start dealing with it.
