The tradition of dressing up in a costume for Halloween is something that isn’t just for children. Many NBA players take part in the annual fun and bring plenty of creativity in their efforts.
While there was a fair share of the traditional horror movie character costumes, some players went above and beyond the usual choices in 2019. It’s safe to say that the execution of these choices would win most Halloween costume contests.
Here are some of the best costumes from around the NBA:
