NBA centers shouldn't expect smelly armpits when they play against DeAndre Jordan — target="_blank">he uses Secret deodorant.

While many NBA stars are known for their target="_blank">stylish wardrobes, many are also very particular when it comes to their grooming routines, according to Elizabeth Holmes' piece in The Wall Street Journal.

From Amar'e Stoudemire's eucalyptus-and-spearmint-scented stress relief body lotion to Chandler Parsons' hair serum and cream to mold it just the way he likes it, NBA players have become quite particular. Jordan brings his own toiletries on the road because he's a big guy and needs more than the little tubes given in hotel rooms. And when he's at home, he uses an Herbal Essences shampoo and conditioner that happens to be pink -- or according to Jordan, "a manly pink."
