Maybe you like the bowtie, maybe you don't. Either way, James Harden's get-up on Thursday got us thinking about some of the all-time worst NBA draft-night outfits.
Akeem Olajuwon, 1984
Akeem's bowtie is cute. But what we really like is David Stern's 'stache.
Karl Malone, 1985
Yeah, we know this pic is a little fuzzy, but the Louisiana Tech star must not have been seeing straight when he put on this outfit. Fortunately for Malone, he was never as short and skinny as his tie on draft night.
Chuck Person, 1986
White tux with a pink cumberbund? If any guy wore this to their prom, they'd get beat up.
Vlade Divac, 1989
Did he go to a thrift store just before the draft?
Dwayne Schintzius, 1990
The suit's fine. The mullet? Never fine.
Shawn Bradley, 1993
This tie might have indicated what kind of career Bradley had in store.
Jalen Rose, 1994
Dressed like a fire hydrant, Rose was lucky no dogs were sniffing around Madison Square Garden.
Samaki Walker, 1996
We're pretty sure Walker didn't become a pimp once his NBA career came to an end. But if he had, he wouldn't have had to buy a new wardrobe.
Maurice Taylor, 1997
Stern had to avert his eyes from this suit to avoid going blind.
Drew Gooden, 2002
Where are the buttons, Drew? What have you done with the buttons?!
LeBron James, 2003
So that's why LeBron is called "King James." He looks like a chess piece.
Dwight Howard, 2004
This looks pretty sharp, but only on Superman. Normal men, don't try this at home.
Raymond Felton, 2005
Did he roll out of bed and come to the draft?
Joakim Noah, 2007
With this clown suit at the ready, Noah can join the circus once his NBA career is over!
