The NBA Draft (along with the NFL Draft), in addition to being the place where talented athletes begin their careers has also become somewhat of a fashion show.
While many will do their best Russell Westbrook impersonations, rocking hipster frames or plaid pants, others will go with the more traditional suit and tie. Whatever option they choose, they’ll have some nice head wear from Adidas once their name is called by David Stern.
The athletic company today revealed the 2013 NBA Draft hats, which feature a throwback snap back closure. If only the players could get to walk up to the stage in some puffy, silky old school Starter jackets to complete the ensemble.
From the NBA press release:
Celebrating a new class of elite basketball players, adidas and the NBA are unveiling the official 2013 NBA Draft Cap collection.
In that iconic moment as names are called, the adidas snap back cap will be the first authentic team apparel worn by the NBA’s new stars. The caps will feature NBA team names in raised, embroidered font, stitching on all seams, as well as tonal impact camo, team logos on the underside of the brim, and the NBA Logoman embroidered on the back.
Each brim also features a silver and black reflective sticker to commemorate the 30NBA Drafts orchestrated by NBA Commissioner David Stern.
The 2013 NBA Draft will take place on June 27 at Barclays Center in Brooklyn, New York and official 2013 adidas NBA Draft Hats for all 30 teams will be available on NBAStore.com, Champs Sports, and other sports retailers for $28
