2009 NBA Draft

NBA commissioner David Stern takes some time to pose with a few of the 2009 draftees.

Adorning prominent accessories, first draft pick, Blake Griffin, relaxes before the draft begins. His choice of matching his pocket square to his plum French cuff shirt is a good move. Paired with his silver tie bar, Griffin's dark ensemble injected with fresh color is a slam-dunk!

Number 4 draft pick, Tyeke Evans, will be adding a Kings jersey this season. Here you can see an elegant pinstripe suit can reach outside of the black and white box. His color wheel of choice was pink as he sports a striped dress shirt with complimenting tie and pocket square. Drafts have a tendency to show who is at the top of his game, on and off the court.

Representing Syracuse was Number 6 draft pick, Jonny Flynn. The Minnesota Timberwolves picked the 6-foot guard to join their team and maybe teach the rest of players a thing or two about how to assemble a suit with style and sophistication. It is hard to believe at just 20, he can see how attaching a simple accessory, like a tie clip, can create a sleek, polished look. Apparently in between conditioning Flynn has been keeping up with his style guides!
