Lucas Nogueira was drafted by the Boston Celtics with the 16th selection in the 2013 NBA Draft. (He was later traded to Atlanta.) As soon as people saw the 7-foot Brazilian walk out of the stands and stuff a tiny hat on his giant head of hair, the Internet fell in love. We still haven’t really seen him play much basketball, but this brief Summer League highlight is all the proof we need to know that he should be fun to watch – even if he’s not good at basketball.

Texas inquired with Brad Stevens of the Celtics, too.
Not mincing words.
