Every season, Halloween is a date to circle on the calendar to keep your eyes hooked on the NBA players' walk into the arena.
Which NBA player dressed up as who? Who runs away with the honour for the best costume?
Last year (2020), the NBA schedule gave the festivities a rare miss as the 2019-20 restart culminated early in October and the 2021-22 season didn't tip-off until days before Christmas Day.

It would be difficult to dethrone Robin Lopez as the costume champion from the Halloween edition 2021. Along with his wife Christine Vargas, the Orlando Magic center dressed up as 'Batman and Penguin'.
Lopez's costume even got reactions from former and current NBA players like Channing Frye and Kevin Durant respectively.
