On June 23, during the 2022 NBA Draft, Dyson Daniels’ mother caught everyone’s eye in a dress that has since gone viral. Daniels entered the stage holding his mother Brikitta Kool-Daniels’ hand before the Pelicans selected him with the eighth overall pick in the NBA.
Dyson was always one of the most intriguing prospects at the 2022 NBA Draft. Due to his versatility and exceptional defensive skills, his stock steadily rose, and on Thursday night, the New Orleans Pelicans selected him with the eighth overall pick. Before the draught started, a number of young basketball players made their way onto the platform with their families. One of them, Daniels, made his way onto the stage at the Barclays Center with his family. While his father was dressed in a burgundy suit, his mother was wearing a white gown with a thigh-high slit. Daniels selected a silver suit and a white NBA Draft cap.

On social media, his mother quickly became popular. Reporter Troy Machir tweeted, “Dyson Daniels is going to be a trending topic tonight,” along with a photo of Daniels and his mother, both of whom were wearing open-toed heels and a white dress.
One person replied, “NBA twitter gonna blow up after seeing Dyson Daniels mom.” Another person tweeted, “Dyson Daniel’s mother is a generational prospect.” Another person questioned whether Daniels’s mother or his silver metallic costume, which one admirer likened to “foil paper,” would cause him to become a hot topic.
After seeing Dyson Daniels’ mother, NBA Twitter will go crazy.
