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 don't have one. I'm not about to spend $600 to $1,000 on a little toiletry bag like that.
Do you own a pair of Gucci or Louis Vuitton shoes?
I don't have any more Gucci or Louis shoes. I didn't want to be a part of the "culture" of the NBA.
Do you own a pair of Beats by Dre headphones?
Yeah, I have them. But I didn't buy them for the guys like everyone is saying. I know some dudes that work there; they're from Chicago. They gave me a great number of headphones and I just dispersed them to my teammates.
