St. John's Chris Obekpa is wearing short shorts this season

Thursday November 27th, 2014

St. John's University center Chris Obekpa is 6-foot-10, which means his decision to roll with short shorts this season is leaving a lot of leg exposed.

The Nigerian junior has taken to rolling up his uniform into his compression shorts this season because he feels it is less restrictive on his long legs.

Obekpa's reasoning may be all about function but the internet's love for them is all about style.

The short shorts also allowed for a hilarious moment with D'Angelo Harrison trying to escape a defender by running between the center's legs.
