Grading the Fashion of the NBA Draft (Viewer Edition!)

Friday June 27th, 2014

One of the most exciting things about the NBA Draft is getting to see the players in snazzy suits. SI's basketball page has full coverage of the newly-drafted NBA players and their suits, but at Mustard, we feel that sports are nothing without the fans. So let's find out what some of the fans had to say about the suits at this year's NBA Draft:

    Beatrice, Nebraska
    Fischerspooner was dressed to the nines on Thursday night to celebrate the NBA Draft, and didn't hold back in giving his opinions on style. When asked about Andrew Wiggins' outfit, Fischerspooner commented, "Frankly, I think it's pretty gauche."

    Dolores, Colorado
    We all know that Glen's big mouth has gotten him in trouble on red carpets in the past, and this year was no exception. When asked about Jabari Parker's understated grey suit, Anamaguchi replied, "Ugh, looks like SOMEONE had a coupon for JC Penney."

    Florence, South Carolina
    Angus has always tried to be diplomatic about player fashion, but this year he had some strong words for Jusuf Nurkic: "This is the biggest night of your life. Could you have dressed up a little?"

    Lacey, Washington
    "What ever happened to old Hollywood glamor?" Carl opined after seeing Adreian Payne's ensemble. "I mean, who let him leave the house like that?"

    Amelia, Ohio
    Xavier watched the whole draft from beginning to end, and had one major takeaway: "Ugh, I thought we had left that dreadful double-breasted stage behind us. It's 2014, let's get into some modern fashion!"
