Denver Nuggets guard Jamal Murray is joining fashion designer Dilly Manahan to develop a special clothing collaboration honoring his dad’s roots and influence growing up. His father has been a very important influence in this star’s life, which he mentions in the #BringOutTheBest episode with @uninterrupted! He said, “To be able to do this from the roots really means so much more to not just me, but my dad as well.”
The episode shows the collaboration between Jamal Murray, Dilly Manahan, and Dell as the pair discuss the design of a few clothing pieces including basketball shorts, hats, and t-shirts with a few unique touches honoring his dad’s influence on his life. In the end, we see Murray sharing a special moment with his dad as they go through the pieces together.
On a journey of developing his basketball career and affiliations, he’s also signed a multi-year shoe deal with New Balance to create his own shoe design sometime in 2021. The deal became official before the debut of the 2020-21 NBA season on Christmas Day, where he sported an all-black silhouette for the first time taking the court as a New Balance athlete.
There will be lots to look forward to from Jamal Murray in 2021 as he’ll be designing complete fits perfect for any fashion connoisseur out there. Stay tuned at Athletes Creative Trap for updates!
