Ah NBA Draft night, when league commissioner David Stern introduces men tall enough to set drinks on his head to a nation of college basketball and Association fans.

It’s also the night that the formal dress code gets thrown out the window. Fashion week, it is not. Get ready for more futuristic, throw backs to the past, 70s pimp stylin, and just plain old UGLY threads to grace the stage on Thursday night.

By Paul M. Banks

We begin with Joakim Noah and his 2007 attempt to gain a year of eligibility at Clown College/become a villain in the 1990 live action version of “Dick Tracy.”

This picture of Samaki Walker in his 1996 draft night ensemble, I can’t think of anything else but Fly Guy’s talent competition “poem” in “I’m gonna git you sucka.” If you recall it was:

“***** better have my my money. Not some. Not part. But all of it. Cuz if she don’t, she’s gonna get my foot in her ass.”

I don’t believe the Michigan Wolverines Fab 5 got a lot of money under the table now after seeing Jalen Rose’s 1994 ensemble. No one with a lot of money at the time would wear this.

Yet another reason to make fun of the Minnesota Timberwolves. Raymond Felton (a bust if there ever was one) and his 1990 chain link fence in thread form.

Was Drew Gooden trying to emulate Dr. Evil?
