Joakim Noah Forced To Leave Bench During Game Due To Poor Fashion Choice

Joakim Noah was reportedly escorted off the bench during the second quarter of the Bulls game against the Indiana Pacers on Monday night due to a poor fashion choice. Noah violated the NBA’s policy which requires all inactive players who sit on the bench to wear a jacket.

ESPN first reported on the “incident:”

“I don’t even know really,” Noah said. “They told me I wasn’t dressed appropriately so I changed.”

During the game Noah was taking taunts from fans in stride including one fan who barked out, “Hey Noah, nice skinny jeans!” Noah responded by giving the fan a thumbs up.

Noah admitted that it was the first time in a while he was dressed in that kind of attire.

“That’s not really my style,” he said. “But I want to be out there with my guys.”

Noah then returned to the bench at the start of the second half wearing a blue-striped shirt. He also switched out of his black suit blazer and borrowed Randy Brown‘s blue blazer. Apparently the sweater was the problem under the league’s fashion code of conduct.
