The 2012 Mock NBA T-Shirt Draft

Posted on June 28, 2012 by Brett Farmiloe

Tonight is the night for the NBA draft. To celebrate this uniqe occasion, we decided to do a mock draft of t-shirts for every NBA team we work with.

Here's our expert opinion on which t-shirt will go where and when.

1. New Orleans Hornets

In a classy move, the New Orleans Hornets show love to NBA draft host ESPN by selecting the ESPN Cream Pancakes Distressed Premium T-shirt with the first pick of the 2012 Sportiqe NBA T-Shirt Mock Draft.

2. Charlotte Bobcats

In an effort to revitalize the fan base, the Bobcats select the Bobcats "Cheer" shirt by Sportiqe.

3. Washington Wizards

No shocker here. The Wizards play it safe and select the Tap Cornbread Super Soft Vintage Washed Tee.

4. Cleveland Cavaliers

There were a lot of ways the Cavs could have gone with the fourth pick in the Sportiqe NBA T-Shirt Mock Draft, but they've decided to go with the Vintage Tubbs S/S Tee. Great choice considering the wide collection they had to choose from.

5. Sacramento Kings

We remember what the Kings did last year in the NBA Draft when they selected Jimmer Fredette. What will they do this year in the Sportiqe mock draft?

The Kings have logged their pick. They've decided to show some love to the ladies and select the Peace/Love Triblend T-Shirt.

6. Portland Trail Blazers (from Brooklyn Nets)

Ladies and gentleman, we have a trade. With the sixth pick in the Sportiqe Mock NBA T-Shirt Draft, the Brooklyn Nets have negotiated the rights to JUSTIN BIEBER to the Portland Trail Blazers!!!

Wow. Didn't see this one coming. The Trail Blazers are taking a huge gamble on Justin. He already was rocking the Hello Brooklyn t-shirt. He'll probably pull a Ricky Rubio and sit out a year or two.

7. Golden State Warriors

Talk about drafting for the future. The Golden State Warriors will be moving to San Francisco in 2017, and with the 7th selection in the Sportiqe Mock NBA T-Shirt Draft, they have selected the "San Francisco" Warriors Royal Blue Cornbread T-Shirt.

8. Toronto Raptors

It gets cold in Canada, which is why the Toronto Raptors have gone long sleeve with the 8th pick in the Sportiqe Mock T-shirt Draft.

9. Detroit Pistons

Detroit pays homage to it's history by selecting a comfy t-shirt with a vintage feel. Great steal at the 9th pick.

10. New Orleans Hornets (from Minnesota T'Wolves via Clippers)

We have teams making serious moves here. The Clippers have traded BILLY CRYSTAL to the T'Wolves, who then traded him to the New Orleans Hornets at the 10th pick. Billy is a diehard Clippers fan...not sure how well this will fair for New Orleans.

11. Portland Trail Blazers

In a pick only they could have pulled off, Portland has selected the 'Rip City' Vintage Tee in White. This is going to fit in really nicely with a lot of collections in Portland.

12. Houston Rockets (from Milwaukee Bucks)

Excellent pick here for the Rockets at the twelve spot. They pick up some much needed fashion for the fan while celebrating the team's roots dating back to 1967.


13. Phoenix Suns

With the last pick in the lottery, the Suns have selected a purple tee from the Vintage Harmon collection.


14. Milwaukee Bucks (from Houston Rockets)

Milwaukee really went out on a limb here. They've gone completely against the grain and have selected a Sportiqe Hometown Classic in Superdawg. Word on the street is that they really liked Superdawg's ability to deal with the pressure from the line. Plus, one of Superdawg's cross streets is Milwaukee Avenue. If you ask us, great addition to the Milwaukee lineup. Every one in Milwaukee loves a good brat.

15. Philadelphia 76ers

This pick has Philadelphia 76ers written all over it.

16. Houston Rockets (from the New York Knicks)

With the 16th pick, the Rockets have selected the ESPN Cream Pancakes Distressed Premium T-shirt.

17. Dallas Mavericks

At the 17th pick, the Dallas Mavericks select whatever shirt Mark Cuban is wearing. Very safe pick here by the Mavs.

18. Houston Rockets (from Minnesota T'Wolves)

With the 18th pick, Houston has selected the Rockets Crocket tee. This gives the Rockets the inside presence they've been looking for in the middle.


19. Orlando Magic

What a uniqe pick here by the Magic. They've selected the Magic Charcoal Atari Premium T-shirt at 19. Absolute steal for them here.

20. Denver Nuggets

It gets cold in Denver, which is why taking the Nuggets Vintage Hoodie with the 20th pick fits this fan base so well.

27. Miami Heat

The 2012 NBA Champion Miami Heat select the Finals Edition Abba Shirt. Great way to cap off the season with this pick.


28. Oklahoma City Thunder

The Western Conference Champion Oklahoma City Thunder select a NBA Finals t-shirt. Tough decision here at 28 for the Thunder considering all their apparel options, but in the end, this shirt really sets the tone for next year.

At 29, the Bulls have selected an ESPN Now Playing: The Rose Show t-shirt. Let's hope this pick can recover from injuries so the roadtrip continues.
