The most resounding F-minus-minus grade should to Adidas for designing those disastrously awkward-looking NBA Draft caps.

You know the ball caps I'm talking about, because your favorite team's draft pick put one on last night. Anthony Davis and Michael Kidd-Gilchrist are wearing them to the right.
