In a night full of surprise picks and trades, my favorite shocking moment of the 2013 NBA Draft came when Stern announced the 16th pick of the draft, Lucas “BeBe” Nogueira of Brazil.  I wasn’t shocked that the trade crazy Celtics drafted the big man, I was shocked at the big man’s hair and his effort to put a Boston hat on top of it.

Bill Simmons said Nogueira just won the internet with that hair and he was correct.  This easily passed the sight of watching Joakim Noah and Robin Lopez attempt to put a cap on their heads too.
