They Wore Short Shorts

Wilt Chamberlain has single-game scores that still send sportscasters' toupees aflutter, but get a load of those short shorts!

More than nostalgia, pre-1990 NBA uniforms are fashion comic relief. Thank the basketball gods that Michael Jordan came along. Never mind the stats; the Chicago Bull's most lasting legacy should be the forgiving inseam.

Today, Kobe Bryant, Shaquille O'Neal and other players have expanded on the trend, dropping their shorts to lengths so great, they'd probably be long pants on us mortals.
