Now this is a story all about how
A Wildcat’s life got flipped-turned upside down…

Now that the drama of the NBA Draft has slowed, we can focus on a small little detail that may have gotten lost in the shuffle—fashion.  With a new draft class comes a new era in the NBA Style Wars, and Nerlens Noel has brought a gun to a knife fight. Yesterday, GQ analyzed the style choices of this year’s top 10 draft picks.  While his peers showed off their preferences for such finery as “European suits” and gold all in their watch, Noel was in a class of his own.  Showing off his sweet flattop hairstyle, Noel described his fashion icon:

Some of us have the same stylist, but I’m looking to compete with the most stylish players playing. I obviously like retro looks, I grew up watching The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air.

So, welcome to Philly, Nerlens Noel! I like your style.
