LeBron James’ headband had survived so far as kind of a totem of his youth. James, at 28, has watched his hairline slowly recede for a few years now. He has heard it used as a punch line in a rap song by Tyler, The Creator. And he has worn that signature headband higher and higher on his head, concealing the thin parts as his hairline retreats like a melting glacier behind it.
But then the headband came off. He lost it, wonderfully enough, on the rim, as perhaps only he could. And, look, this is not magic. He is not some kind of a reverse Sampson. But it was impossible to ignore that everything changed in that moment, and there is something just perfectly, comically, gloriously LeBron about that. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9q1d...layer_embedded
I did see the TWITTER Post but not this particular take on the DE-BANDING of the Melon Head.
Why doesn't he just get hair plugs? It isn't as if he can't afford it. It would be his own hair and would grow out of his scalp. No, I'll just rock a headband to hide my hairline. It's like those women with weaves that need tightening who wear a hat to hide the glue or attempt to gel down the edges. Y'ain't foolin' nary soul with your charade !
