The heated basketball craze isn't just a big deal for athletes, it's also prevalent in many edgy basketball editorials in the fashion industry. From Slam Dunk Formal Wear and All Star photo shoots to steamy locker room shots, the theme of the popular sport makes an appearance in more fashion editorials than you'd think. Some feature actual NBA all stars, while others disguise runway models into abstract athletes.

The stereotypical wire-caged outdoor basketball court seems to be a popular setting for photo shoots. Models dressed in hip attire loosely hang off rustic nets in run-down courts.

A Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Issue even incorporated comedian Will Ferrell and Supermodel Heidi Klum as his photo shoot partner. Let's just say it involved Ferrell dressing up as a 70s basketball team player with Heidi Klum somewhere in the picture. Stats for 51 Beautiful Basketball Editorials Trending: Older & Warm
