Despite LeBron James being an exceptional basketball player, he has a considerable number of critics who seize any opportunity to mock him. This week, he inadvertently provided them with fresh material.
LeBron has been dealing with a receding hairline since early in his career, often concealing it with a headband. Over the years, the headband crept higher, and now it appears his hair follicles are holding on tenaciously.
After a recent game, the Los Angeles Lakers star was shirtless at his locker during a media session. As reporters engaged with him, LeBron was notably seen vigorously brushing his head, although it seemed more like he was brushing his skin than actual hair.
Meanwhile, the struggling Los Angeles Lakers (17-18) are attempting to break a three-game losing streak as they face the Memphis Grizzlies. However, the team is facing internal challenges, with reports from The Athletic’s Shams Charania and Jovan Buha citing a “deepening disconnect” between Lakers players and head coach Darvin Ham. The discord is attributed to recent extreme lineup adjustments by Ham, leading to inconsistent team rhythm.
Fans happily chimed in on the viral video:
Following their triumph in the In-Season Tournament in Las Vegas on Dec. 9th, the Lakers have struggled, posting a 3-9 record. In non-tournament games, they stand at 11-18 and hold a 17-18 overall record, placing them 10th in the Western Conference standings.
LeBron has long heard suggestions to shave his head, and perhaps he will consider it before concluding his illustrious career.
