Today is the day that some young guys dreams will either be made or broken. The NBA draft is always an interesting day for many reasons. In this post, we will pay homage to some of the hideously awesome suits that some former NBA stars adorned on their special day. Because I’m feeling patriotic due to the USA’s World Cup game, let’s start with Jalen Rose’s very red pinstripe...

Five Worst NBA Draft Night Suits (Photos)

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.

Since then, the lottery has brought a lot of great moments to teams lucky enough to win it. David Robinson and Tim Duncan to the Spurs, Shaq to the Magic, LeBron to the Cavs, Durant to the Sonics, and just two years ago, Anthony Davis to the Pelicans...

The No. 1 draft pick has gone ghost

If you haven't seen Anthony Bennett play for the Cleveland Cavs yet, he's most likely hoping that you wait a while before checking out his skills ... he does still have skills, right? Bennett has had quite the slow start for being the No. 1 pick in the 2013 NBA Draft. Like, the worst start by a top pick in NBA history. Bennett has not made a field goal. The 6-foot-8, 240...

NBA Draft’s Most Memorable Fashions

It’s draft time again. And just like I did in April with the NFL draft, I’ve decided to take a stroll down NBA Draft memory lane by recognizing some the evening’s most memorable fashions…well in most cases most regrettable.

Hoopster Nation: Eric Montross Boston Celtics Jersey

Some Hoopsters want to rock jerseys of well know players like Clyde Drexler or David Robinson because the player was good. Others, like myself, enjoy the more obscure/average players because it touts our NBA knowledge and creativity.

Craig Sager School of Fashion Hall of Fame Nominee: Samaki Walker

At the 1996 NBA Draft Samaki Walker declared to the world that in his spare time he liked to dabble in being a pimp. There is no other explanation based on this cream colored suit and top hat that would make Craig Sager proud. The NBA Draft is a hotbed for fashion disasters and this is no exception. The color of the suit is one thing but to go all Don Magic Juan on us is another...
