They always say that style is cyclical and that everything that used to be popular will end up being cool again some day. They must be right because Nick Collison and Steve Nash both showed up to Media Day with side parts and I’m pretty sure they didn’t plan it. I blame Don Draper.

Nonetheless, if two of the most stylish guys in the league are wearing side parts for a day where they’re having pictures taken that will be used the entire season, then you know side parts must be cool. And seriously, when you look at how cool these guys are with side parts, you’ll understand how huge this look is going to be.

Quite obviously, this is going to be a popular hairstyle that catches on around the league. Side parts are the new cornrows, or so I heard. Plus, if it primes the pump for a Jeff Hornacek comeback, then I’m all for it.

  1. Nash actually looks good with that style.

    Skeets should try to get the side part going again.

  2. Chris Douglas Roberts signs with the Lakers! Metta and CDR on the same team?!? Tweet of the weak is going to be tough to pry out of LA

  3. I bet lebron would give up his lone ring and his left nut to have that much hair.

  4. No matter how hard you try to mentally change Joakim Noah’s hair, it is not possible to un-see him with his mop head in a ponytail running down the court.

  5. Only problem is that 80% of the league won’t be able to pull that look off because they’re African American. So it’s pretty much a white guys hairstyle. There’s no way to turn a fro into a side part without it looking ridiculous.

  6. Could also be the return of the Don Draper.
