It's the afternoon before the NBA Draft, and Bruno Fernando is examining himself in the mirror.
"I look really good," he says, almost stunned. "That's crazy." In a few hours, he'll be the first ever Angola native to be selected in the NBA Draft. Right now, he's getting styled by Adri Zgirdea—designer sneaker boxes line the walls, and gifting suite bags fill the rest of the room. A few agency reps and friends mill about, making sure Fernando is ready in time. Fernando eventually selects a pair of studded black Louboutin sneakers, shoes that match the piping on his dark blue, double-breasted tux. The jacket has a special lining, a hybrid Maryland Terrapin and Angola national flag pattern designed by Alec Stewart.
