Today, Forever 21 released their collaboration collection with the NBA. From loose layering tanks to teeny mesh shorts, cropped short-sleeved jerseys to easy T-shirt dresses, the range features sporty but still feminine pieces repping seven of the league's teams: the L.A. Lakers and Clippers, the New York Knicks, the Brooklyn Nets, the Boston Celtics, the Miami Heat, and the Chicago Bulls. Most of the items are free of player affiliations by way of names and numbers, but there are a few special cases.
IDK about you, but I generally like to know at least a little about what I'm wearing before I step out into the world repping it, so if you feel the same and need some schooling in the NBA history department, I'm here to help. Consider this your Forever 21 x NBA collection primer.

Thanks to Miley Cyrus, Mike Will Made It, and their "23" ode to Michael Jordan and his namesake shoes, '90s-era Chicago Bulls gear is cooler than ever (well, since the actual '90s, anyway). Naturally, that solidified their spot in this collab line, but instead of showcasing the team's current star, #1 Derrick Rose, a Bulls dress ($16) AND a bodysuit ($14) feature The Worm, #91 Dennis Rodman. Rodman is definitely one of the greats and certainly one of the most fashion-forward NBA players, maybe ever, so this is a good pick for the edgier/nostalgic NBA fan.
