NBA stars found an intriguing way to make spectacles of themselves and gave us the Sports Fashion Trend of 2012: Geek-chic glasses.

Or should we say, geek-chic eyewear, since lenses are strictly optional.

Apparently it's all about using thick-rimmed frames as an accessory.

It didn't hurt that the NBA Finals featured four of the more prominent proponents of this look: Russell Westbrook and Kevin Durant of the Thunder, and Dwyane Wade and LeBron James of the Heat.

Here's a look at the stars getting Urkel with it:
