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. Miami Heat star guard Dwyane Wade dresses up as Justin Timberlake, white face and all. Via I Am Black Bobby's Tumblr . Atlanta Hawks forward Al Horford dressed up as Kanye West.
