What have you done with your lockout vacation? Fly around the nation playing in every pro/am or celebrity game you could find? Travel through Asia selling shoes and playing in exhibition games? Attend a lot of meetings in New York that went nowhere?

Baron Davis has you all beat.

One of the NBA’s leading hipsters is putting together a documentary on the decline of fashion in America. No, I’m not kidding. The Wall Street Journal talked to him about it (via SLAM).

Mr. Davis has spent much of his time during the NBA’s lockout developing a documentary about the decline of style in the U.S….

The documentary, “American Schlub,” is in pre-production. It takes aim at the poor sartorial standards of the American male, says Mr. Davis, who plays for the Cleveland Cavaliers. “We used to be fashion forward,” he laments. Now, “We’re more of a sweats and Ugg boots type of society,” he says. “We wanted to challenge men, from that perspective.”

He may have a point (I write while sitting here in sweat pants). Not sure I’m going to watch this movie, or ever dress like Baron (seen at a players meeting this summer in his fashionable lumberjack look), but he may well be right.
