NBA Draft Lottery: Dan Gilbert’s Son Is Best Dressed; John Wall Is Worst Dressed
The 2011 NBA Draft Lottery will solidify the final draft order for the league. The bounce of the ping pong determine whether your team gets a sure thing or will have to roll the dice on someone less certain in this NBA Draft. Will they trade up, down, or take their chances where they're at? Bleacher Report gives you the latest scoop on all things draft-related, reactions from around the league, and speculation on what things mean for your team.
Dan Gilbert’s son Nick Gilbert made a huge splash at the NBA Draft Lottery tonight. The 14-year-old with Neurofibromatosis, a nerve disorder that causes tumors to grow throughout the body, represented his father’s team and helped them grab the first and fourth picks in the draft.
What’s more, he showed up in style, rocking retro-style glasses and a bow-tie, and carrying himself with confidence even as other NBA big-wig towered over him.
The award for worst dressed goes to John Wall. Prior to the draft, Wall said he would wear a yellow jacket like Irene Pollin wore last year. Pollin is the widow of Abe Pollin, the Wizard’s former owner. Irene’s jacket helped the Wizards grab the number one pick last year, so Wall intended to continue the sartorial tradition.
Unfortunately, he chickened out and wore a plain pinstriped suit. The result? The Wizards – slated to pick fourth according to the lottery odds – got the sixth pick instead.
Bad call, John. Bad call.
