First it was this.

But then this happened.

And then for a little bit yesterday, it was this.


But then today on Instagram, it’s this.


So the question is, what’s next? As a Dennis Rodman fan, I feel like this is the most logical choice.

This is David Stern at LeBron James’ MVP trophy presentation last night.


And this is David Stern usually.

Either he has been so busy with the playoffs that he hasn’t had a chance to stop by the salon, has a “Mad Men” cameo in the next few weeks or is just going through something right now and wants to try something new. No matter the explanation, pretty slick look. Literally.




Also yes.

Also wouldn’t want to sit behind him at a movie, even if it is the new Terrence Malick film. But since I wasn’t invited to the “To the Wonder” premiere, let me just say again — yes.


And now it’s time for Hair Care Tips with Nick Collison, brought to you by GQ magazine:

What is the product you use to keep your hair looking so “GQ” during games?

For some reason, when I put out the call on Twitter for this mailbag, I got more questions about my hair then anything else, so I feel obligated to answer at least one. And I have to admit I feel strange about giving style advice, but then, who am I to deny the people what they want? So here’s my secret: I don’t put any type of product in my hair during games. I have before, and when the sweat gets in my eyes, it stings. I wash my hair 3 or 4 times a week, and I use conditioner. I usually take a nap on game days, so I put my head under the shower to get rid of the bed head, then use my hands to part it to the side, and I’m out the door.

This has been Hair Care Tips with Nick Collison. Thanks for tuning in!


Just a day after we found out that Nick Young has a mullet, we now find out whether or not it’s really a mullet. I know that sounds confusing, but some people will call whatever that is a “bump,” or a “patch,” or a “ducktail.” So just for clarification, here is some clarification. From the 700 Level:

Asked what the new ‘do was called, Swaggy got creative.

“It’s the Shaggy P,” he said.

Fellow strange-hair-wearer Spencer Hawes weighed in with a few thoughts of his own.

“It’s the black mullet, the bullet,” Hawes joked.


We pushed Swaggy for clarification. Is the Shaggy P. really a mullet?

“Kind of,” he said with a smile.

Well that clears up absolutely nothing. It’s not a “bullet” because it’s not a bullet and it’s only “kind of” a mullet. I guess we will just have to call it “the Shaggy P” because rhyming is great and there aren’t really any other options.

I’ll accept “Kanye mullet” or “Billy Ocean head” as well.


Look, I like “808s & Heartbreak” as much as the next guy, but come on. A mullet? In 2013? Even if it’s a fashion mullet, it’s still a mullet and it’s still 2013.

But whatever. If Nick Young says, “It’s time for a Chang” then I guess it’s time for a Chang. It’s the internet and we’re all “Community” fans, so OK. Let’s get on board with this mullet, you guys.

Just kidding. Still a mullet.


Evidence for:

  • He looks like he is in costume.
  • Only half of his hair is braided, which seems aerodynamically nonsensical.
  • This could be the beginning of a Two-Face costume from the Tommy Lee Jones era.
  • Considering he hasn’t yet played a game for the Sixers, you’d think he’d have enough time to let all of his hair down.

Evidence against:

  • Has had his hair braided before, so it makes sense he’d have some remnants.
  • Might have been thinking, “Cornrows are kinda cool” but couldn’t really talk himself in to them.
  • Left side of head could have just been super itchy.
  • It’s my birthday and this is Andrew Bynum’s very weird idea of a present.

Verdict: Worst case of bedhead ever. Not a costume.
