Ian Mahinmi is a man of style with his own clothing line and a commitment to dressing fashionably every time he shows up to an NBA arena, or even the Wizards' practice facility.
So, it didn't take him long to get a lay of the land at Disney World and form his own evaluation of how to look good in the NBA bubble. As Mahinmi sees it, things are a bit dressed down, but still important if you want to be noticed for the right reasons.
"Everybody is wearing is casual, but you can notice the difference between somebody who really doesn't care and somebody who's used to caring about how he gets out of the house and everything," Mahinmi said.
Mahinmi was asked which of his teammates fell in the category of not putting much effort into their appearance. He offered up Moe Wagner.
Wagner understood why.
"It's okay. I'm from Berlin, Germany. Nobody cares how you dress. I'm very comfortable in my own skin. That's all I have to say about that," Wagner said.
For Mahinmi, though, the barbershop the NBA provided players has stood out most. He usually keeps his hair very short, but has now grown it out to be braided. That required a trip to the barbershop soon after he arrived to get the braids redone.
Mahinmi was pleasantly surprised with what he found.
"They've got a really nice setup. Honestly, I've gotta tip my hat to the NBA because the barbershop we have at the Yacht Club, the hotel that we stay, it's really nice," he said.
"You have two barbers, you have a lady that does braids and cornrows and all that. You have another lady that does locks. They have a nice setup, music going, good vibes. It is an enjoyable time."
Mahinmi has been down there with the Wizards for two weeks now and seems to be well-adjusted when it comes to keeping up his appearance. But what happens two weeks from now? Players could only pack so much going to live in a hotel room for five-plus weeks. It may get difficult to maintain a variety of outfits while being around the same people every day.
That's why Mahinmi, like many players, is getting packages shipped to him. They just have to wait a couple days for the items to clear the screening process due to coronavirus.
"I won't go down the list of all the things I got shipped to me because it's crazy and you will laugh," he said.
