Cousy’s Short Shorts
Date: 1950s to 1960s
During Bob Cousy’s era, the inseam of the typical shorts worn by NBA players was a mere three inches, in stark contrast to the eleven-inch inseam preferred by NBA players in the early 2000s. Cousy’s choice of footwear, PF Flyers, also represented a significant change from his era to today.
