Whether it’s on the streets or on the hard court, basketball players like to express themselves through fashion. They see it as an avenue to show people who they are, or to make a mark in the eyes of the public. However, with 31 teams and over 400 players in the semi-pro Maharlika Pilipinas Basketball League, what could possibly make a player stand out?

Looking for answers, Courtside Philippines carefully browsed through a lot of the players’ Instagram accounts and found tons of hoop-related photos and videos. While some had food-centric feeds and others had just lifestyle photos in general, there were some who just left lasting impressions with their eye-catching OOTDs.

We gathered the best ones who you, as a hoops-fan, could find outfit inspirations for 2020!

Here are some of the MPBL players who rocked 2019 in style:

Ryan Arambulo (@ryanarambulo)

The Fil-Am swingman of the Iloilo United Royals has his Instagram filled with OOTDs from their many adventures. Although his fashion often consists of the easy round-neck tees and jeans, the man knows how to accessorize. You can see him sporting trendy bandanas or beanies, long necklaces, or just sunglasses to top off the cool guy look.

CJ Isit (@iamisit)

Through the entire 2019, Isit has only posted a few photos in his Instagram and yet, they’re still as eye-catching as ever. The San Juan Knight knows how to pull off the simple tee and jeans ensemble with bold-colored kicks, and delivers with the utmost confidence. Could he be any cooler?

Ryusei Koga (@ryuseikoga)

The Muntinlupa Guard serves us nothing but the best OOTD photos in his feed. The man travels a lot, and he has photos that’ll get you through winter, spring, summer, and fall! He often wears button-downed polos with the first one unbuttoned, or plain tees with a jacket on top. If you’re looking for a guy who can pull off a look for all seasons, Koga is your man.

Paolo Javelona (@paopaojavelona)

Bacolod’s team captain is THE definition of the boy next door. He often goes for the long-sleeved tops like sweaters, jackets, or polos, wearing light washed jeans, and white shoes. For more casual days, he opts for round-neck shirts with minimalist prints on them, shorts, and a sophisticated yet casual looking watch. If you’re looking for inspiration for your everyday outfits, Pao Javelona has got you covered from Monday through Friday!

Joshua Torralba (@joshuatorralba)

The high-scoring Makati guard has mainly two things in his Instagram: basketball and fashion. He knows how to dress up, and he does it so well. Torralba has outfits for every occasion, from a normal day out to formal events, and yes, even weddings! He’s your go-to guy if you’re thinking of trying a new look. But from what we can see from his feed, you can’t go wrong with a shirt and a cool jacket! The only question for him now is: what can’t Josh Torralba pull off?
