See How the Youngins Stunted at the NBA Draft 17

The kids are lit.

Published June 23, 2017

The NBA is quickly becoming the runway for men’s fashion. These potential players proved that theory by showing up and showing out at the 2017 NBA Draft held in New York on June 22. Getting drafted was the least of these star players' concerns. It was about being seen as the best-dressed new rookie off the court. From flashy Rolexes to shiny shoes, these guys brought their A-game when it comes to style. These are best statements of the night. Let's have a look at these outfits.


  1. Go time. #NBADraft

  2. Lonzo Ball looks dapper wearing the logo of his family’s Big Baller Brand logo on his bow tie accenting his all-black suited look!

  3. Markelle Fultz loves basketball. He's wearing a suit with lining that says, “Faithful to the grind,” and rocking shoes made actually out of basketballs! #commitment.  

  4. Donovan Mitchell looks sharp in a light gray pinstripe suit — and he shows off his socks to let you know he took his look very serious, ensuring that his Angry Bird socks coordinated with his tie and pocket square.

  5. Josh Jackson wore a flashy Rolex to the Draft. Do he even need an NBA salary with that piece of jewelry?  

  6. John Collins attended the Draft in some pricey spiked Louboutins. Usually we see the loafers, but Collins brought out the high tops.

  7. Suit detailing was an ongoing trend at the Draft — check out Zach Collins representing his hometown, Las Vegas, with the inseam of his coat while wearing insane loafers. 

  8. De’Aaron Fox and Malik Monk suits are both from JC Penney. 

    De’Aaron's suit lining represents his hometown in Arkansas. He also rocked a pair of custom loafers that read  "LOVE."

    Malik’s suit lining pays respect to his mother and aunt, who were both affected by breast cancer.

  9. Josh Jackson opted for a more simple but still fresh, polished look. 

    The NBA has come a long way in terms of fashion, but we love the progression! Watch out, DWade, Chris Paul, Iman Shumpert and Russell Westbrook — these new kids are here for your best-dressed spots!
