Pictures of the best Halloween costumes from around the NBA this year. Posted by Ben Golliver When it's not enforcing a dress code, tightening up the technical foul rules or threatening contraction, the NBA can be a pretty fun place. This year, players, mascots, cheerleaders and fans all got into the Halloween spirit, dressing up before, during and after games.  NBA stars like Dwyane Wade, Paul Pierce, Rajon Rondo and Shaquille O'Neal got into the act, and Shaq easily takes home top honors for his bold attempt at cross-dressing as "Shaqueeta."  Let's have a look. dwyane-wade-justin-timberlake-halloween Miami Heat star guard Dwyane Wade dresses up as Justin Timberlake, white face and all.

It's all about context. Sure both whites & blacks can be hyper-sensitive about race but DWade isn't attempting to belittle ALL whites anymore than Robert Downey was attempting to create problems for blacks with his portrayal in Tropic Thunder. What do you mean "we wouldn't hear the end of it?" Hell, the President of the US is "fair game" for mockery without any mainstream outrage - signs with bones in his nose, watermelons on the White House lawn, Obama-like Curious George pics. And you can't even get HIM to say it's racism... So, Jesse & Sharpton always b**** & moan. Believe me, bi***ing & moaning it's confined to them...

I can't possibly be the only person to see this... Dwayne Wade looks exactly like the white news anchor that Dave Chapelle used to do on Chappelle's Show...
Also, this really is great.  God knows how many fines and suspensions pictures like these on twitter would have brought under No Fun League's Personal Conduct Policy for defaming the good name of the league.  God forbid athletes be seen having fun and acting like a normal person would on Halloween.  (Ok, not sure normal dude's the size of Shaq cross dress on halloween, but you get what I mean.)

Wow, I would have thought Rajon Rondo would at least get an honorable mention with the injured Tiger Woods! I can't stop laughing. All that pic needs is someone dressed up as a crazy white women swinging a golf club at him... ROFL!

Is that a costume or just a strange outfit on that Kardashian? I haven't ruled out a wild animal attack.  Omg, somebody help her, It's trying to swallow her arm!

I know right? It's never ok for white people to dress up as a black person, but it's ok for a black person to be white. And he painted his face white, not the actual skin color of white people... That's sad, but it's really really funny. I have to admit Rajon and Shaq were the best by far!

Being a Lakers fan of course I can't stand the Celtics. I must admit that these pictures had me crackin up. Rondo as a hurt Tiger Woods was classic. And Pierce's costume was funny as hell. But Shaq took the cake. He always did something that made me laugh when he was on the Lakers, but this has to be the funniest thing I've seen him do. As much as I want to dislike him for the way he ended his tenure with the Lakers, I just can't. He is funny, charming, and generous. I hope he has much success on this Celtics team.
