In a league filled with ties and button-ups, these men chose to rebel and coach in comfort rather than to uphold the sartorial needs of one Mr. David Stern. This season, there is a new dress code for coaches and sadly, it is time we bid farewell to our old friend, the mock turtleneck.

We salute you brave coaches! Godspeed, you black mock turtleneck!
