Joakim Noah is one of the more colorful players in the NBA.
And while Noah may have his own "unique" fashion sense, apparently an outfit he wore during Monday's game did not fly with the NBA. On the bench while he deals with plantar fasciitis in his right foot, Noah was spotted wearing skinny jeans, a blazer and a sweater during the Bulls' matchup with the Indiana Pacers.
The NBA office didn't approve of Noah's outfit, so it called the team to tell the All-Star to change clothes. Sure enough, Noah returned wearing a striped polo shirt and ditched his black blazer for a blue one from team executive Randy Brown. The key, though, was that he had dropped the sweater.
"That's not really my style," he said. "But I want to be out there with my guys."
Turns out somebody from the league office didn't like Noah's skinny jeans/sweater/blazer combo. They called and he had to leave the bench.

Noah's return to the bench was not enough to reverse the Bulls' fortunes, as Chicago fell to the Pacers, 111-101.
