Iman Shumpert’s flattop is looking a little worse for wear. It seems like there’s a part of it missing in the back. Did he sleep on it funny for six months in a row? A basketball fan should never pay attention to the style choices of NBA players, but I can’t help but wonder if it affects his performance.
Less voluminously-haired players can just use that hair-in-a-can stuff to disguise their deficiencies, but that option is off the table for Shumpert. He could theoretically construct a cardboard structure that fits in with the missing hair, but it might fall off while he’s playing.
Sometimes DownToBuck doesn’t have all the answers, and this is one of those times.
