(Newser) – Women get excited over dresses at the Oscars. J.E. Skeets of Yahoo Sports gets excited about suits at the NBA draft. Here are his picks for the best- and worst-dressed players at last night's big event:  

  • Best Dressed: Brandon Jennings—"What's not to like?"
  • Worst Dressed: Hasheem Thabeet wasn’t a disaster, but "shiny light grey on a seven-foot-three-inch frame is not a great look."

  • Best Dressed (Runner-Up): Blake Griffin, in the "best purple of the night."
  • Best Tie: Ricky Rubio, whose skinny tie conveyed attitude. "An attitude that apparently doesn't want to play in frigid Minnesota."
  • Worst Tie: No wonder Jordan Hill got booed.
  • Worst Sweater: Why was Austin Daye wearing a sweater? File under "suit that looks good now but will definitely look bad in old NBA footage."
