After some pre-draft trade shook up the draft order before the Bulls' pick at No. 7, the first five picks went as expected. Once Minnesota grabbed Jarrett Culver at No. 6, North Carolina point guard Coby White was there at No. 7 and the Bulls pounced on him.
When he walked up to the stage, big hair and all, and put on a Bulls hat, well, it was a moment.

White's hair is special. Maybe the best in the draft class. It doesn't fit well under a hat though.
About 50 seconds into this video you can see White hit the stage and he is handed his Bulls hat. He tries to put it on his head, but after multiple attempts, it doesn't exactly sit right. He makes it a few steps before adjusting the hat again and then sort of just gets to a point where it sat on his head good enough.
It's an all-time draft hat moment. It may not be as good as Lonnie Walker last year, but it's still up there.
The tradition continues!!

It also brings another Bulls draft pick who had hair that wasn't meant to be worn with a hat, Joakim Noah.
