NBA Trend Spotting: Giant Headphones

.
If you've caught any NBA pregame coverage throughout this young season, you've probably spotted one of the league's participants casually strolling down an arena corridor, sporting a pair of massive headphones. NBA team-specific headphones seem to be all the rage this year, and will almost certainly be flying off the shelves for the duration of the upcoming Christmas shopping season. If you consult the picture above, you'll notice 5 time NBA champion, and alleged rapist, Kobe Bryant wearing a customized purple-and-gold set of limited edition "Beats by Dre" phones. This particular set is specially constructed to make any high-end designer suit appear infinitely more tacky. Sources close to the Laker claim that Kobe has put an end to listening to his customary pre-game Jay-Z album this season, instead opting for an IPOD playlist he lovingly refers to as Lilith Fair Jamz 4E. Bryant closes the playlist with the classic Luscious Jackson hit Ladyfingers, which he says "helps me get up for big games"...
