Do Shorter Shorts Make NBA Players Look More Professional?

For the past 20 years, baggy shorts have been the trend in the NBA, but things are about to change.

NBA superstar Lebron James has opted to go with a tighter fitting jersey and shorts. James takes his role model status quite seriously, and that extends to his appearance and off the court.
Per the NEOMG:
The four-time MVP has done some self-reflecting in recent years. He’s observed the changes in the NBA, which led to questioning himself: Am I doing all that I can? Am I truly leaving my imprint on not only the game, but also the league? […] “I’m always thinking about ways I can be of help,” James said. “That’s what it’s about, making sure you’re doing your part.”
This season he trimmed his uniform shorts by a couple inches, and had his jersey made snugger than in years past. He had expressed to those close to him he wants to leave the baggy look behind and place a renewed emphasis on professional appearance when it comes to the size of his uniform as well as his pregame and postgame attire. […] When he arrives for work at The Q, he typically wears a sportcoat. It’s his way of reaffirming that it’s a business atmosphere. Professionalism and conduct were a main focus of the Cavaliers’ pre-regular-season team meeting in late October.
Attire has always been an generational issue that sways with the time. At the moment, form fitting clothing is making a comeback, and it lends to what LBJ is trying to represent on the court.

Should the NBA change its policy with on-court apparel as well and guide the players toward more form-fitting shorts and jerseys?
