Now that we know the likely order of the upcoming NBA draft, it's time to turn our attention toward more important things and answer those burning questions like, "Who will rock the worst suit?"

It never fails. There is always one guy who decides it's up to him to make a fashion statement—maybe in hopes of taking attention away from their flaws and instead directing it toward their wardrobe. Nevertheless, we've seen some of best college players rock the worst suits.

Off the top of my head I can't help but think of Joakim Noah, James Harden, and LeBron James. But after doing some research, I'm not sure it can get much worse than Samaki Walker.

That being said, will this be the year Walker is unseeded as the worst of the worst? I mean, kids are getting real bold in today's society with their selection of clothing. What's to say this fad will skip over the NBA Draft?

Looking at the players assumed to be selected very early in the draft, you do have some very peculiar personalities and styles, but are any of these young guys bold enough to throw on that Craig Sager suit on one of the biggest days of their life? Only time will tell, but we can't help but speculate.

Let's start with Michael Kidd-Gilchrist, a seemingly confident young man standing 6'7" and one of the more NBA-ready talents entering the draft this year. It's rare to see him not wearing a Kentucky polo or sweatsuit, but from what I was able to gather, he's not very likely to step out in anything too flashy.


Bradley Beal, a pure scorer with more tattoos than many NBA players already, is not a stranger to the spotlight. Although he's got enough attention on him already going into the draft I wouldn't be surprised to see him try and soak up a little bit more. Be on the lookout for a surreal Beal suit on draft day.

For some reason it seems to be the big men who think they can get away with the flashiest suits and I don't expect this trend to miss Andre Drummond. He's worn a sleeve, a mask, a headband, and now I think he'll wear somewhat of a show-stopping ensemble on his big day. 

Thomas Robinson gave us a little preview of what he might have in store for us on the day of the draft, sporting a bow tie at the lottery selection. Robinson is one of the most exciting players entering the draft and although he went with the bow tie look just the other day, I don't see him coming out with anything too flashy. Especially after people have already questioned his maturity level.

Baylor's Perry Jones did have to wear those highlighter jerseys in college, but I don't think that's indicative of the suit we will see him wearing as he walks up on stage. Said to not have a dominant personality, Jones will be one to lay low.

Last but not least, Anthony Davis. The fact that he has yet to take care of those brows, or should I say that brow, is really astounding. I promise you if I were his friend I would not let him leave the house for the draft until he did something about that caterpillar crawling across his forehead. 

Whether it's for marketing or not, the brow has got to be tamed sooner rather than later and if it still persists on the day of the draft, I would put nothing past Davis as far as the rest of his wardrobe goes.
