Andrew Bynum has yet to play in a game for the Philadelphia 76ers, which has left us with very little to talk about aside from his insane head of hair. The Sixers center has had some of the ugliest hairstyles you will ever see this season, including the Don King look and this ridiculous mop top. It has to be some sort of joke, right?
Unfortunately, it doesn’t sound like that is the case. In fact, it gets worse. According to Dan Gelston of the Associated Press, Bynum recently explained that he has tried to model his hair after a character named “A Pimp Named Slickback” in a cartoon series on Adult Swim called “The Boondocks.” Here’s what the character looks like:
If Bynum was really attempting to make his hair look like that dude’s, he failed — miserably. Whatever the case, the big man has absolutely no intention of getting a trim.
“I want it to grow forever, man,” he told CSN Philly’s John R. Finger. “It’s going to come a point in time where it’s not going to be growing.”
Bynum’s knees really need to get healthy so he can get back on the court. Once he starts playing again, we can stop talking about his visits to Dave & Buster’s, the feuds he’s having with his neighbors and his obnoxious hairstyles. On second thought, his hair is probably going to stay in the headlines as long as he keeps up the nonsense.
