The NBA Draft is tomorrow night.: Which is fine, I'm a big fan of all professional sports drafts, but the NBA draft is great because of the fashion! Short ties, pinstripes, and 6'5"+ players wearing jackets that would like like long dresses on any normal man.

Thank you, corpse, for that picture of Samaki Walker. It brings back many fond memories. I can't wait to see Pavel Podkolzine's suit. It's gonna be slammin!

All Samaki needs (other than some game) is a diamond-tipped walking cane and three hookers.

He's missing the m*f*in' long coat with the furry lapels! And the badass chunky sunglasses with diamonds? And the gold tooth? Where's the gold tooth?

don't forget the cane. a hat like that needs a cane, from Tiffany's.

I could be wrong, but I think he had a cane with him on draft night. Can anybody produce photographic evidence of said cane?

Ye Gods Man! Give that boy a sandwich! Which brings me to this week's horrible joke (that I overheard at work) that makes you feel guilty for laughing:
Which Olsen twin checked into rehab for anorexia? The fat one.

i don't even know where to start... the oddly square shaped wide white tie, the seemingly too small sport coat... the SNUG pants... I guess someone was happy to be drafted.

j-girl, I believe the caption to that photo reads: "The Mailman is ready to deliver." Word to all my Somalian peeps. -Tim Thomas
