Iverson revealed his new look in the locker room today before the Eastern All-Star team practice. I didn’t think it was going to be such a HUGE story but it’s already making it’s news rounds. One blogger exclaimed “No Haircut could be so meaningful” in a post titled “Is The War Over Now”.
According to Fanhouse, “This is a big story because, when you think cornrows, the first thing that usually comes to mind is Allen Iverson. He basically started the trend in the NBA and still stuck with them even after many players cut theirs off.” Another news outlet reports “Since 1997 A.I. has rowed; the braids were long a symbol (along with his tattoos) of the urbanization of the NBA”. Some outlets even threw President Obama’s name in the mix of reasons he may have decided to cut his hair. To them, it’s the end of thugging in the NBA! Stocks just went up..
