Moziah Bridges wasn’t drafted Thursday night, but his performance was nonetheless remarkable.
The 13-year-old was on Mark Cuban’s Shark Tank, the show that pits budding entrepreneurs against one other, when he was only 11. At the NBA draft in Brooklyn on Thursday, his $200,000-a-year apparel company, Mo’s Bows, supplied several draft picks with fresh bowties.
Speaking to ESPN, Bridges said he especially enjoyed Kelly Oubre’s outfit (and shoes) and Willie “Trill” Cauley-Stein’s bowtie.
“That was the perfect bowtie that I gave to him,” Bridges said of Cauley–Stein’s bowtie, which Bridges made especially for the former Kentucky star and new member of the Sacramento Kings. “I was just so proud to see that he achieved his dream.”
