It's inarguable that Tyrese Haliburton is one of the best point guards the NBA currently has to offer but, recently, Memphis Grizzlies legend Tony Allen has taken exception to the star's off-court decision-making, particularly when it comes to his style of fashion.

Heading into Monday's Eastern Conference Semifinals Game 1 matchup between the Indiana Pacers and New York Knicks, the two-time All-Star was seen pulling up to Madison Square Garden donning an eye-sore of a get-up that made Brooklyn Nets guard Ben Simmons' 2024 Met Gala fit look rather tame.

In reaction to Haliburton's oversized sports coat accompanied by a t-shirt tucked into athletic shorts and black lace-up dress shoes, the former Grizzlies forward couldn't help but slam the 24-year-old's fashion choices on a May 7 episode of Grind City Media's Chris Vernon Show, going as far as to joke about how he might not be aware of which "era" he currently plays basketball in.

Grizzlies legend Tony Allen slams Tyrese Haliburton for fashion sense

"He got on three different seasons. Straight up. He's got the T-Mac era jacket on, the And1 mixtape shorts, the 2004 dress code change, and today's era of fashion... He got on four different eras right now, bro... Straight up, man, what's wrong with him? Man, I don't know what's wrong with him."

Like a large number of athletes in the modern era of sports, Haliburton is an outspoken fan of fashion and has even participated in events such as stylist Dan Solomon's Fashion Within Sports panel at Indiana University last year.

As Grizzlies fans likely remember, though Allen's style of play on the court was eye-catching and effervescent, rarely did his fashion choices off the hardwood match such a level, as he often dressed quite reserved compared to some of his peers.

With this, it should come as no shock that the oft outspoken franchise legend dropped his two cents on the topic of Haliburton's Game 1 attire.
