The Most Memorable NBA Draft Suits, Hair, Trades and Moments – 1984-2012

Published on June 27th, 2013 by Astramskas, David | 9,040 views

The most consistent issue with a lot of NBA draft suits is how big, baggy and in need of a tailor the off-the-shelf-from-the-big-man-store-suits are. ┬áI expect this year’s story to be different as the NBA is now in a very fashion conscious state with players like Westbrook, Wade, Durant and Rose covering many covers and feature stories in men’s fashion magazines.

While we wait to play fashion police at tonight’s draft, let’s take a look back at some of the most memorable hair, outfits, trades, busts and moments of the NBA draft since 1984.

SONIC BUST

Worst draft trade ever? Supersonics trade Pippen (#5 pick) for Olden “impersonating a police officer” Polynice (#8 pick)

THANK YOU VLADE

Lucky for the Lakers, the Bucks wouldn’t trade Marbury to them for Vlade Divac. ┬áInstead the Lakers ended up getting Kobe for Divac and if that doesn’t sound like a steal, the original rumor was the Lakers were originally offering Anthony Peeler for Charlotte’s high school kid.

MARBURY FOR JESUS

Less than an hour after shocking the world by drafting Ray Allen, the Twolves traded him to the Bucks for KG’s friend Marbury

BLUE CHIPS

Chris Webber and Anfernee Hardaway 1993

Lucky for Penny he did the movie “Blue Chips” with Shaq. The Magic traded future ROY Chris Webber for Penny.

FUTURE BIG 3 IN MIAMI

76ERS FAILS

Within 30 minutes, the 76ers (with Moses Malone, Dr J & Charles Barkley) traded the #1 pick for Roy Hinson and then traded Moses Malone for Jeff Ruland!

DALLAS BOOS DIRK

The Mavs traded Robert Tractor Traylor (RIP) to the Bucks for Dirk Nowitzki and a lot people actually thought the Mavs were crazy for doing this trade.
