Lucas Nogueira and his massive afro killed it at the NBA Draft

The Boston Celtics used the 16th overall pick on 20-year-old Lucas “Bebe” Nogueira, a lanky 7-foot, 220-pounder from Brazil who has tons of athleticism and raw talent, but will need a lot of polishing to get his game NBA ready (as it turned out Nogueira ended up with Atlanta after a confusing multi team trade between the Celtics, Mavs and Hawks). Where Nogueira’s career ends up is anybody’s guess, but he does have one thing going for him—his massive afro, which turned out to be the highlight of Thursday night’s NBA Draft, going so far as to steal some of the thunder from the shock of UNLV’s Anthony Bennett being the 1st overall pick by the Cavaliers.

Check out the phenomenal head of hair on Lucas Nogueira…
