NBA Dress Code Police Ask Noah To Leave Bulls’ Bench

(CBS) – If nothing else, Joakim Noah has a unique sense of style

And that unique taste put him in some hot water with the NBA during the Bulls’ loss to the Pacers on Monday night.

Noah, who sat out his third straight game with plantar fasciitis, was asked to leave the Bulls’ bench by NBA personnel after the All Star center didn’t meet the league’s dress code.

Dressed in a cardigan, blazer and jeans, Noah was forced to change into a more league-friendly outfit. He returned after halftime wearing a blue-striped shirt and jacket.

Ah, much better.

Apparently, the league frowns on cardigans.
