The latest crop of NBA talent officially made its way into the league during Thursday night’s draft, and many players made sure to wear something eye-catching for the life-changing occasion.
While Lonzo Ball and his outspoken dad LaVar went with a classic black-on-black look, other prospects added a bit more color to their ensembles.
Here are some of the best fashion statements from the draft festivities.

Ball is definitely life for Markelle Fultz and apparently footwear, too. The No. 1 pick in Thursday's draft wore shoes made out of real basketballs.
The Ball family caught everyone's eye at Barclays Center. From left, LiAngelo and LaVar wore the Big Baller Brand ties while Lonzo and LaMelo opted for the Big Baller Brand bowties (more on that in the next photo). They were all excited when Lonzo heard his name called by the Lakers with the No. 2 pick.

Gonzaga's Zach Collins gave a nod to his hometown of Las Vegas with this handkerchief. Collins was taken 10th by the Kings but then traded to the Blazers.
De'Aaron Fox has nothing but love for the entire draft experience. The former Kentucky star had a message of "love" prominently displayed on his dress shoes. Fox got to show off his footwear after being taken with the fifth pick by the Kings.
The lining of Markelle Futz's jacket displayed a tribute to all the people who helped him get to the NBA.
De'Aaron Fox also took the time to show off the lining of his jacket.
