Lollapalooza's Hoopsters

It was a trend we first noticed at this year's Pitchfork Music Fest: attendees donning basketball jerseys. One of our pals tweeted: "I've seen jerseys for 4 starters from the '99-'00 Pacers. Searching for Rik Smits to complete the set." Then we noticed even more at this year's Lollapalooza, some common (Ron Artest's Pacers jersey) and some more obscure (Derrick Rose's Simeon High jersey). We still have no idea where this new trend came from but luckily the sharp folks at Deadspin have a two part gallery devoted to the trend that also tries to get to the bottom of the issue: hipsters or bros?
