Archive for the ‘Is Andrew Bynum in Costume or Not?’ Category

Evidence for:

  • He looks like he is in costume.
  • His hair looks like a cheap Beatles wig.
  • “The Three Stooges” movie was released in this calendar year, so dressing like Moe would actually be a timely costume.

Evidence against:

  • Seems to be in the experimental phase of growing his hair out where you keep trying new things in the hopes of finding something that looks good.
  • He probably didn’t see “The Three Stooges,” since no one did.
  • He’s a computer nerd, so he probably knows the internet is loving all this weird hair stuff he’s doing and is enjoying the attention.

Verdict: Throwing the internet a bone (not a costume).

Evidence for:

Evidence against:

  • This picture was taken nearly two weeks after Halloween.

Verdict: Hair experiment (not a costume).

Evidence for:

  • He looks like he is in costume.
  • Specifically, the roundness of his hair makes it look like a wig.
  • Might be getting a few final uses out of his Halloween costume.
  • From the greys, to the goatee, to the knee braces, he is basically Denzel Washington in “He Got Game.”

Evidence against:

  • He’s seriously wearing his hair like that now.
  • The scraggly greys prove that this is actually human hair.
  • Drunk Denzel Washington from “Flight” is a far more timely costume.

Verdict: Not a costume.
