The NBA opened its season last night and as we've come to expect from the league, there was some inspired fashion happening out there. We decided to rank the best we saw.

#6. Norris Cole's Hightop Fade: No other player in the league stepped up their hair game last night quite like the Miami Heat's backup point guard. Really, the shape, the structure, the artful fade all make this an architectural marvel.

1. LOS ANGELES LAKERS
2011–12 Record: 41–25

WHAT THEY'VE GOT: The next Superteam. By bringing in former MVP point guard Steve Nash and six-time All-Star center Dwight Howard to join guard Kobe Bryant, it's clear that the Lakers are making a push for a title. Now. Nash brings production from the point that the Lakers have missed in recent years, and he can run a nice pick-and-roll offense with Howard, as long as Bryant lets them command the ball enough.

1. OKLAHOMA CITY THUNDER
2011–12 record: 47–19

2011–12 record: 46–20

WHAT THEY'VE GOT: A shiny championship trophy! LeBron James finally won his first NBA title, and now he and the other members of Miami's Big Three — guard Dwyane Wade and forward Chris Bosh — need to try and defend it. The addition of guard Ray Allen gives the Heat another reliable, although aging, scoring option. More »

1. CHICAGO BULLS
2011–12 record: 50–16

WHAT THEY'VE GOT: A new identity. With Derrick Rose out until midseason with a torn ACL, the heartbeat of the Bulls is now center Joakim Noah. Noah has the potential to put up a double double every game, and his tenacious D sets the tone for a unit that was the stingiest in the NBA last season. The Bulls' offense will rely on forwards Luol Deng and Carlos Boozer. And when Rose is back in the lineup, the Bulls will present matchup problems for just about every team in the league. More »

1. SAN ANTONIO SPURS
2011–12 Record: 50–16

WHAT THEY HAVE: One of the greatest coaches in the game in Gregg Popovich and a title-winning trio. Forward Tim Duncan controls the paint, while point guard Tony Parker and guard Manu Ginobili create off the dribble. Guard Danny Green and forward Matt Bonner shoot threes to spread the floor, while forward Kawhi Leonard and guard Stephen Jackson play solid D. More »
