Nerlens Noel Has Kentucky Jersey Stitched Inside Draft Night Suit

Nerlens Noel’s high-top fade is his permanent fashion statement, but that didn’t stop Noel from making another one during his draft night on Thursday. The Kentucky big man flashed his Wildcats jersey, which was stitched inside his draft night suit, just after being drafted by the New Orleans Pelicans at #6 overall.

Noel was considered by many to be  the likely top pick of Thursdays draft, but wound up slipping to the Pelicans when the Cavaliers decided to take Anthony Bennett at #1 overall. The Pelicans later traded Noel (along with a future first-round pick) to the Philadelphia 76ers in exchange for Jrue Holiday.
