The biggest issue this week in the NBA offseason? LeBron James suddenly fixing his fading hairline, probably with plugs, resulting in plenty of memes taking advantage of the new situation.
So now it’s time to retire all the jokes of how LeBron James’ hair will look like by 2016 or 2017. No more headband jokes, because even if James will wear one, it won’t be to hide his hear disappearing. All of a sudden, he’s 23 again, looking like Paul George.
For the second straight year, James’ hairline gets too much attention. It’s no longer because of the widespread hatred for him, which has never disappeared. It also has something to do with his new shoes, and that there’s nothing worthy talking about when it comes to the NBA at this point.
Once the real season begins, maybe the jokes will be coming at a certain rate from time to time, but it will no longer be the center of attention. People will be too focused on wishing to see him lose with the Cavs.
