I don’t know for sure, but it seems like Kelly Oubre’s overall cockiness has grown quite a bit as the season and his career has gone on. I don’t remember him being so flamboyant with the ‘Zards, maybe I’m just blocking it out like I did with most ‘Zard-related stuff from around that time, but I don’t think so. He’s always had some flair, but his has some REAL flair this season. Ric Flair. Why do I hear a faint voice saying “woo!” over and over the background?
The mini-headbang that earned him a technical was his most vigorous yet. There’s a reason he hadn’t gotten T’d up for it before, because they were so minor, but this one, god damn. I thought his head was going to pop off and careen into the courtside seats while everyone screamed. That sort of violent motion is not good for your body. Hasn’t he heard of all the rock musicians who headbanged themselves into an early retirement or, worse, an early grave?
If he’s really going to be doing a lot of headbanging, he’s got to let that hair grow out a lot more, and probably add some product to it so it flows down to his middle back. He already has the pretty-boy appearance of a glam musician, why not complete the look? Convince the Suns to get some sequin-spangled full bodysuit alternates and he’d really be rocking.
