The ones who wear cropped pants that cut off above the ankles donít. Itís a style.

Super annoying trend of intentionally ill-fitting suit pants and no socks. Glad Doncic is doing it right

it's an odd style. Socks have an actual functionality. Wearing dress shoes without socks is just odd and not a professional or nice look

Exactly. Doncic is ready to go #3 or manage your stock portfolio. I like it.

As usual, the fashions on display last night were hilariously bad.  Why is there this desire to stand out at all costs?  It's not impacting draft position.  All is forgotten in 24 hours.  Bunch of immature babies if you ask me.

I don't understand "fashion".  I think most of them look ridiculous.  I'm more of a traditional suit guy.  Get something classic and Italian, that actually fits.

But, to each their own.  They think they look good, they're on international TV, their hard work has paid off and they're all about to be millionaires.  They can have fun and look as silly as they want.

Yeah, kids like to have fun.  However, at some point (and being drafted into a professional league is the perfect point), you have to start acting like a professional.

Yea I never followed new/odd trends or styles when I was their age!

Do people really not remember how they thought and acted and what it was like when they were 19 or 20?
