Mamba mentality with a side of Big Baller Brand? Not likely. There is no way a focused, driven, ultra-competitive guy like Kobe Bryant would be caught dead with a situation like this on his head.
Even when Kobe was young and rocked the tight afro, it was very neatly trimmed, even and naturally colored. After that, he went buzz cut and won a ton of titles. How many titles does the Ball family have?
This was never going to work, and it didn’t make a difference what hairstyle you put on him. Michael Jordan wasn’t known as “His Airness of Hairness.” He rocked that chrome dome. He made it cool to be bald.
Also, there are millions of us men out here going bald each year. We can’t do anything about it, and it’s not our fault. Please let us have a bald legend. We aren’t asking for much.
