Iman Shumpert recently decided to showcase his support for Adidas by shaving their logo into the back of his head, but the new look didn’t last long. Because of NBA rules, Shumpert is left with nothing but a triangle.
On Saturday, the New York Knicks forward posted a before and after shot on his Instagram account.
“Banned,” the caption read. “(Sorry) @nba didn’t realize there were branding issues wit da logo #iPUToN.”
As SI.com’s The Point Forward pointed out, sporting a corporate logo during games violates Item 5 of Section H in the NBA’s official rule book. Players are only allowed to wear the logo of their choice on their sneakers.
Shumpert is endorsed by Adidas and I’m sure his endorser loved the advertising stunt while it lasted. Such is life when it comes to sports business. If Shumpert wants to get a crazy haircut that looks like this, he’s more than welcome to do so.

On Friday, Knicks player Iman Shumpert debuted a new hairstyle embellishment -- the Adidas logo shaved into the back of his head -- but the NBA made him get rid of it.
The NBA must have something against swag.
At least, Knicks guard Iman Shumpert probably thinks so. The former McDonald’s All-American showed some creativity with his trademark high-top fade haircut recently, having his barber shave the Adidas logo into the back of his hair. The NBA quickly swooped in and forced Shumpert to shave the logo off, citing league rules. He posted a before...

We’re in the middle of one of the best regular season stretches in the history of New York Knicks basketball. That’s both good and bad, but it’s undeniably true. It’s been a week full of accomplishments, none of which should be taken lightly or just tossed aside and deemed meaningless:
The 12-game winning streak is the third best in team history.

After hearing whispers that the Knicks were better off without him, Carmelo Anthony has quieted that talk by catapulting his game to a level not seen around here since the days of Bernard King. His recent 131-point explosion against the Heat, Hawks and Bucks brought back memories of some of the greatest offensive performances ever by a Knickerbocker. Below...

The red-hot runs of Carmelo Anthony and the New York Knicks are set for a major challenge - a visit to Oklahoma City.
Anthony squares off with the only player ahead of him in the scoring race as his Knicks, riding the third-longest winning streak in franchise history, look to make a big statement Sunday against Kevin Durant and the Thunder.
While Oklahoma City is battling San Antonio...
This was a gravy game for the Knicks, I’m not sure anybody expected them to come into Oklahoma City and beat the Thunder. But they have and now consequently have won twelve games in a row. They continue to play their best basketball of the season. This game didn’t disappoint either, the Knicks got a lead in the first quarter and were able to hold it till the fourth. Then it was...
