With the NBA Draft officially over players can now sleep a little easier knowing the biggest night of their
young lives is over. They now have a place that they can call home. This year’s rookie class has a lot of
hype surrounding it on the court, and they got off on the right foot making a good first impression with
their wardrobe choices for the draft. Here are 10 of the best from last night.
Player: D’Angelo Russell
School: Ohio State
Drafted by: LA Lakers
Russell was the second overall pick and he showed his school spirit in a scarlet and grey trimmed blazer,
with white pants and scarlet shoes. He also went with a scarlet bowtie to complement the whole suit.
Player: Devin Booker
Drafted by: Phoenix
The smooth shooting Booker had a smoother draft suit
on wearing blue as his primary color and linked it all together with brown shoes and a similar colored
tie. He also showed a little gold on his jacket pocket and gold watch.
Player: Kelly Oubre
Drafted by: Atlanta Hawks
Oubre is normally known for his unique haircut, but he
generated a lot of buzz last night with his burgundy suit, glasses and spiked Christian Louboutin loafers.
His look was simple and yet bold at the same time.
Player: Jahlil Okafor
Drafted by: Philadelphia 76ers
The big man was projected to be drafted second
overall but he was second to none with his style. Okafor rocked a deep red blazer and black pants with
the classic white shirt and black bowtie to match. He also had some unique pins in the lapel of his jacket.
Player: Justise Winslow
Drafted by: Miami Heat
Before the National Champion heads to South Beach he
first had to cross the draft stage in his classic style midnight blue suit. Winslow pulled the look off by
wearing black shoes and a skinny black tie.
Player: Stanley Johnson
Drafted by: Detroit Pistons
Johnson came in with a multicolor look wearing
khaki pants, red and black checkered tie, white shirt and a light blue jacket. A fitting look to a player with
a unique way of playing basketball.
Player: Kristaps Porzingis
Drafted by: New York Knicks
Knicks fans may have been booing because they didn’t want
Porzingis on their team but he definitely left an impression with his sense of style. He wore a look similar
to Okafor but with a black tie. A very European style from the only European player on this list.
Player: Rondae Hollis-Jefferson
Drafted by: Portland Trail Blazers
Hollis-Jefferson had his family
cheering loud from the upper deck of seats and everyone noticed him crossing the stage in his plaid red
and black pants.
Player: Frank Kaminsky
Drafted by: Charlotte Hornets
Frank the tank had a very basic look but it’s on the
inside that counts. Kaminsky’s nickname was in full affect as he had tanks on the inside of his jacket.
Well played Frank, well played.
Player: Rakeem Christmas
Drafted by: Minnesota Timberwolves
With the last name of Christmas you have to stand out from the crowd and Rakeem did just that. He wore a floral style blazer that caught the attention of everyone once his name was called in the second round.
