Playoff Fever: Top NBA & NHL Costumes

The NBA playoffs and NHL playoffs are in full swing, and any self-respecting fan knows how important it is to support the team.  We’ve got some cute basketball costumes pictured above, perfect while you watch Carmelo Anthony and the Denver Nuggets take on Kobe Bryant’s Lakers tomorrow night and Lebron James chase a shot at the championship with the Cleveland Cavaliers against Dwight Howard’s Orlando Magic.

Here are the NBA basketball costumes shown above:

  • Adult Game Face Basketball Mask – Yeah, it’s frightening, but that makes it the perfect mask to wear when trying to psyche out the other team’s free throw shooter.  Particularly useful against Dwight Howard
  • Child Deluxe Troy Bolton Game Costume – I’m not gonna lie, as a basketball fan, this one bothers me.  Yes, the only basketball uniform I could find was from High School Musical.  Well, at least the selection of High School Musical costumes is incredibly comprehensive.
  • Child Deluxe Troy Warmup Suit Costume – Another High School Musical Costume?  You must hate me now.  We wanted to talk about the NBA playoffs, but this is the material we had to work with.  Here, join High School Musical star Zac Efron in making fun of the whole phenomenon, including the basketball portions of his three high movies:

As for the NHL playoffs, the most popular hockey-related costumes are those featuring the hockey mask-faced Jason Voorhees from Friday the 13th.  Sure, Jason never seems to actually play hockey, but I’ll bet these hockey costumes would scare the hell out of anyone trying to make a penalty shot, whether you’re trying to frighten Sidney Crosby or Evgeni Malkin of the Pittsburgh Penguins, the Carolina Hurricanes Eric Staal, the Detroit Red Wings Pavel Datsyuk, or any one of a number of talented Chicago Blackhawks.  Here are some of Jason’s scariest looks:
