NOW that there are no footwear restrictions, we're pretty hyped for the on-court swag that are displayed in the ongoing 2018-2019 season of the NBA. However, sneaker one-upmanship is one expensive arms race, so we'd rather focus on something else to elevate our scrimmage swag this season: shorts! Some of these items are available here, while others may need some reaching out to tito or tita in America, but trust that they're well worth the effort.
We start off with the classic Swingman. If you don't have the new one from your fave team yet, then what are you waiting for? P2,795 Titan
Mitchell & Ness Checkered Swingman Shorts
Fancy something retro but different at the same time? M&N's checkered bottoms are for the ballers who also love rocking some Vans off-court. $85 M&N
adidas Accelerate 3-Stripes
If low-key sweats grey is your vibe, then get this pair from adidas that is a color match but doesn't feature the low-key sweaty feel as well. P1,500 adidas
adidas Badge of Sport
The classic navy blue with red is a combo that deserves a spot in your rotation even if it is nowhere near your favorite team colors. P1,000 adidas
Accel PBA Shorts
Of course, we can't ignore our favorite local league the MPBL PBA. Cop the sky blue if you're a ROS fan! P649.75 Zalora
New Jersey Sets 8/24

Just Don 1996 All-Stars East
If you're ready to drop the cash that could buy you a pair of sneakers on some shorts then Just Don is the nuclear option. You will ball quite hard in these. $500 Just Don
19Nine Retro College Basketball
If you want that thrifted OG look without having to deal with an actual old non-performing pair of shorts, then 19Nine has a full spread of US college kits that you can choose from. Based purely on aesthetic, of course. $65 19Nine
