For those into NBA fashions, one of the big days of the year is the NBA Draft. It is the first real piece of team gear each player puts on to represent his team. And who can forget Chris Webber and Anfernee Hardaway literally switching hats after the 1993 draft day trade.
There have been some great NBA Draft hat designs.
The NBA has released what the Magic's upcoming draft pick will be donning when he walks across the stage to shake David Stern's hand. Take a look (h/t SLAM Online)
I do not know if I am completely sold on the understated design, although I do like the blue highlighting the black-on-black coloring for the hat. The one thing you do not see in this image is the Magic logo placed under the bill of the cap, which is kind of cool.
If you like what you see, the NBA Draft hats are available online at the NBA Store for $27.95. You can browse through all the Draft hats there too.
