Besides getting drafted, guaranteeing themselves millions of dollars and having their dreams come true, several NBA Draft picks were also looking quite dapper Thursday. Athletes have long been known for having great style and the 2014 draft class did not disappoint. Let’s take a look at the six best dressed players that stepped up to the podium last night in Brooklyn.
6. TJ Warren
The newest member of the Phoenix Suns organization dressed to the part. Almost like he knew he was going to get drafted by them based on his redish/orangish stripped shirt attire. Killing it, Teej.
5. Julius Randle
Welcome to LA, good sir. Might want to lose the bow tie though and invest in a beach cruiser. Trust me, you are way too dressed up for the LA lifestyle. You can thank me later.
4. Shabazz Napier
You went to the dark side and you had no choice but you looked good while doing it. You and Kemba would have made magic together but the NBA gods deprived us of such a sight. Bazz ain’t keeping LeBron in South Beach so keep dreaming Miami fans.
3. Dante Exum
The Australian who is leaving Melbourne for Salt Lake City (you sure they gave him a physical, head and all?) had all the right pieces falling in the right places last night. From the vest to the watch to the skinny tie, Exum looked like a top 5 pick. Jazz fans are hoping he looks that sharp on the court too.
2. Marcus Smart
Bad boy gone good Marcus Smart showed the world last night he can be cool, calm and collected. The custom suit and bowtie all but locked Smart’s spot at #2 on this list. In all honesty, Smart looked the part and should fit right in with the C’s in Beantown.
1. Adreian Payne
Are you kidding me with this suit?! Payne decided to pay tribute to his 8-year-old best friend and biggest fan, Lacy Holsworth, who died in April from cancer. The words Adreian and Lacy were stitched inside his suit. The Hawks just drafted a legend.
