The 2013 NBA Draft is roughly two weeks away and that means a lot of the incoming rookies are making preparations for what they're going to be wearing on draft night. Do they go with the tuxedo? Some plaid pants like Wes Johnson had in 2010? The bow tie like Joakim Noah was sporting in 2007? There are a lot of decisions to be made when it comes to their attire that night.
One thing they won't be able to decide on is the hat they end up wearing when their name is called and they walk up to the stage to shake David Stern's hand. That's all up to the teams selecting the incoming draft class. But you can decide which hat you want to sport on draft night or in the future. The NBA and adidas have unveiled the 2013 NBA Draft hats the players will wear.
From the NBA:
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 30 NBA 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.
Will Nerlens Noel be able to fit a Cleveland Cavaliers hat on nicely when they select him with the No. 1 pick in the draft? Or is someone else going to get the honor of putting the Cavs hat on and being the first one up on stage?
We'll have to wait for June 27 to find out.
