Things have been pretty quiet on the Andrew Bynum costume front the last couple of weeks, to the point where we had to move on to other players while our spirit animal devoted himself to more serious pursuits. Lucky for us, he’s finally talking about the main part of his various disguises –his hair.

From the Delaware County Daily Times:

How much higher can the afro grow?
“Oh man, I want it to go forever, man. There’s going to come and point in time where it’s not going to be growing, so I might as well enjoy it while I have it.”

Why flatten it like Dora the Explorer that one time?
“It wasn’t Dora, man. It was ‘Pimp Named Slickback’ (a character from The Boondocks cartoon). No, I flattened it because it gets boring picking it out all the time.”

Just when you thought Andrew Bynum’s hair couldn’t get any better, he goes out and answer questions and compares himself to a cartoon character while worrying that he’ll lose his hair someday. Personally, I hope he never cuts it for the rest of his life so he can be a) the NBA’s first 8-foot tall basketball player and b) asked about it all the time so he can always give great answers.

Every pair of scissors, clippers and shears in all of Philadelphia and the surrounding areas should immediately be thrown in the garbage. Let’s keep this thing around. Forever.
