Coby White's hair is special, but it looks wild in a draft day Bulls hat

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.

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

Bulls will host Giannis Antetokounmpo, Zion Williamson as part of five-game preseason schedule

The Bulls announced their 2019 preseason schedule on Tuesday, and they'll begin their five-game slate by hosting two of the most exciting players in the game.

They'll kick off their campaign on Monday, Oct. 7 with a matchup against reigning MVP Giannis Antetokounmpo and the Milwaukee Bucks. Milwaukee was the No. 1 seed in the East last year and signed Robin Lopez in the offseason.

Two days later, No. 1 overall pick Zion Williamson comes to the United Center as the Bulls host the New Orleans Pelicans.

The Bulls then hit the road with contests against the Indiana Pacers (Oct. 11) and the Toronto Raptors (Oct. 13). They close their preseason slate at home against Trae Young and the Atlanta Hawks on Oct. 17.

All five preseason games will air live on NBC Sports Chicago and the NBC Sports Chicago MyTeams app.
