NBA draft night fashion is back, and it's phenomenal

·3 min read

One of the best things about the NBA draft — besides watching lifelong dreams coming true — is the fashion. We didn't get to see much last year with the virtual draft, but the return of the in-person draft also means the return of one of the wildest fashion shows you'll see in sports. This year did not disappoint. We had shiny blazers, giant watches, bell bottoms and more. 

No. 1 overall pick Cade Cunningham decided to go with an understated all-black suit and shirt, but it's definitely not boring. The shirt has a satin stripe and his shoes are studded Louboutins. 

Jalen Green showed up in a gray suit with silver pinstripes and a white lace shirt. Oh, and the pants? They're bell bottoms.

The 7-foot tall Evan Mobley rocked a gorgeous sea-foam green power suit and a pair of bold black and white loafers. He most likely had that custom made, since it's pretty hard to find a sea-foam green suit that can fit a 7-foot tall man. It's hard to find a suit of any color that can fit a 7-foot tall man.

Scottie Barnes chose a clean, all-white getup with a turtleneck and a blazer with a flower pattern. Barnes also had a massive, bejeweled flower pin on his lapel, which looked heavy enough to actually start dragging down the fabric of his blazer.

Jalen Suggs didn't go for understated. Gonzaga's March Madness hero wouldn't dare show up in anything less than an eye-catching marvel. Suggs wore a sparkly all-silver suit and an incredible watch.

Jonathan Kuminga went with a bold, orange suit. It looks like the blazer is buttoned wrong, but that's actually intentional. Kuminga didn't just go with a bold color, he decided to wear a daring asymmetrical blazer.

Chris Duarte went with a burgundy suit, and dressed his adorable son in the same thing. Unfortunately, the little guy didn't seem too happy with his outfit.  

An honorable mention goes to Ziaire Williams' dad, who showed up in an amazing hat and a knee-length coat. Soak up that spotlight, Dad. It's your night, too!
