How to accessorize like an NBA star
If you're around NBA players, you quickly notice that despite differences in skill level and ability, they all have a few things in common. Virtually every player has three things: Beats by Dre headphones, a Louis Vuitton or Gucci toiletry bag, and shoes made by either of those high-end designers. RedEye asked Bulls players if they own these items and got some interesting thoughts on the science behind this phenomenon.

Do you own a Gucci or Louis Vuitton toiletry bag and if so, why?
I have a Louis toiletry bag, but I'm not really into it because I don't want to be like everyone else. In fact, the only reason I even have one is because my brother bought it for me--with my money, of course.
Do you own a pair of Gucci or Louis Vuitton shoes?
I do have the shoes, but you'll never see me wearing them. They were gifts.
Do you own a pair of Beats by Dre headphones?
Taj [Gibson] got us all a pair recently, and I took Wesley Matthews' [fellow Marquette alum, current Portland Trail Blazer] headphones during the lockout. Then I put the picture up on Instagram. I didn't even care if they had his name on the side!
