They’re off the court — and ready for the catwalk.
We all remember the showstopping looks of this year's NFL Draft. Now, from flamboyant patterns to quirky colors, the 2019 NBA Draft class also had no shortage of style. After all, when your line of work requires you to make the same fashion choices most days, what better way to strut your stuff than to pull out all of the stops at an event like the Draft?
Here were some of the best 'fits from the night of picking.
He was already the draft’s most recognizable face, but newly minted New Orleans Pelican Zion Williamson stood out among the NBA hopefuls in all white. It was a look reminiscent of LeBron James, who had the same look at the 2003 draft.
R.J. Barrett may wear the Knicks’ blue and orange come next season, but he opted for a pink suit lined with Canadian flags over a monochrome shirt.
Barrett’s jacket was lined with Canadian flags, while fellow first-rounder Ja Morant lined his pinstriped purple suit with photos of his family. The chain accessories bring the look together.
Drafted to the Brooklyn Nets is Mfiondu Kabengele, who showed up in a dazzling, cobalt blue suit complete with pocket chain detail.
Perhaps the most daring fashion choice of the night went to Bol Bol, who sported a creepy, black blazer emblazoned with a giant spider’s web. At 7’2”, doesn't he stand out enough?
