Halloween is one of the most anticipated events in the NBA, as it allows players to display their creativity and wit through well-thought-out costumes or weird or stylish outfits. Below are some of the best costumes from NBA players this year.

Pascal Siakam

Siakam has been turning heads early in the season, averaging career-highs across the board. His Halloween costume also caught the attention of a lot of people.

The Toronto Raptors forward dressed up as 50 Cent, choosing the rapper's ensemble on the cover of The New Breed DVD. Amusingly, some fans believe that Siakam should have imitated Andre 3000 because of the uncanny resemblance between the two.

Grant Williams

The 6-foot-6 forward went all out by wearing a Batman costume during the Boston Celtics' Halloween eve game against the Washington Wizards. Williams even donned the costume and used his best impression of the Caped Crusader while being interviewed by the media after the match.

John Wall

The Los Angeles Clippers point guard's costume this year takes the cake - or pizza.

Wall depicted Martin Lawrence's character, Miles, in "Blue Streak." One of the most memorable moments in the film is when Miles disguised himself as a pizza deliveryman while trying to retrieve a diamond he had stolen two years beforehand. Wall's uncanny resemblance to Lawrence in the movie has drawn the laughter of numerous people around the league.

Jordan Clarkson

Clarkson took it to the next level this Halloween by transforming into Edward Scissorhands, the movie character made famous by Johnny Depp.

Hopefully, the Utah Jazz shooting guard didn't hurt his hands getting into and out of the costume. Those hands have been on fire recently, as Clarkson is averaging 17.3 points and 5.0 assists per game to help lead the Jazz to a surprising 5-2 record this campaign.
