Earlier this year, I compiled a photo gallery of the greatest haircuts in NBA history. You've got everyone in there from Kenny Walker and Chris Mullin to Dennis Rodman and Dwayne Schintzius.
Today, we induct a new member.
When J.R. Smith signed with the Knicks, the buzz was around his ability to score in bunches and offer a spark off the bench. But the second Smith stepped on to the court, the buzz shifted to his hairstyle.
Smith hasn't been asked about the new style, or offered an explanation of it. He could be paying homage to someone, he may just be trying out something new, or he might just be very fashion forward.
Regardless, we're not hear to comment on how good or bad the haircut -- which has been likened to the look of a lobotomy -- is. We're simply here to reward its originality among other fascinating styles in NBA history.
