This is a picture from Marquis Daniels of Drew Gooden’s “hair.” It lends itself to one question — what in the world is going on with Drew Gooden’s hair?

There are a few different scenarios I can envision that might explain what is happening back there:

  • Jealous of Carlos Boozer’s infamous paint hair stealing his thunder as mediocre power forward with the most unfortunate hair.
  • Is actually a Wooly Willy.
  • Some sort of weird tribute to Hawaii.
  • Forgot how to cut the ducktail.
  • After recently shaving his head, he put on a brand new hooded sweatshirt and some of the fuzz from the inside of the hood got stuck on his stubble.
  • Big fan of Friar Tuck.
  • Bad Nike product placement.
  • Lost another bet to DeShawn Stevenson.
  • Head was left in the back of the fridge for a little bit too long, then when it started to smell his housekeeper cleaned out the fridge and pulled out his head and this is what it looked like.

Other than that, I’m stumped. Good to know I was right on the money about Drew Gooden being one of the weirdest players in the league. Get this man a razor.
