On June 28th 2013, Lucas “BeBe” Nogueira of Brazil was drafted by the Boston Celtics with the 16th pick and the internet exploded at the sight of BeBe’s hair. He instantly became a fan favorite of basketball fans that have never seen a second of this guy on the court but yesterday, on the court, BeBe did give basketball fans, especially Atlanta fans, something to cheer about when he put on a block party against the Kings.
His 11 minute performance just might convince the Hawks to keep him instead of sending him back to Spain.
Everybody talks to me about this. If I stay here, I’m happy. But if I need to go back I’m happy too because in Spain everybody believes in me. I’ve lived five years in Spain and I know my club and everybody knows me. I’m happy. I know I can improve my game in Spain. I improved so much this year from last year. Right now, the most important thing is my body. I can’t improve my body in Spain. I’m perfect to stay here because the most important thing is to improve my body.
