Kevin Durant wears his eyeglasses so he can see. They have become such the rage in NBA fashion this year that some players chose to wear them even without a prescription.
I blogged about this earlier and started a conversation on my facebook page. Was I the trend setter back in my high school by wearing my Kurt Rambis glasses? (Turns out I wasn't. John Van Meter and Lawrence Neselrodt wore them before I did and we're still searching the archives.)
So, with the NBA finals starting tomorrow, I beg to ask a similar question: who was the first player in the NBA to wear eyeglasses when playing?
The answer: George Mikan. This 6' 10" legend played for the Lakers and played with glasses even before the NBA formed as a league. Here's a pic:
