The H206 charity game in Seattle took place Saturday to showcase the contributions basketball has made to the Pacific Northwest. Former Washington center Spencer Hawes played for the Seattle team and got into the mood with a haircut featuring the Space Needle shaved into his head. Hawes had teased his haircut with a tweet, but it wasn’t revealed until Todd Dybas shared a picture of it on twitter.
Though he’s currently with the 76ers, Hawes is a Seattle native who played high school and college ball in the 206. He teamed up with Brandon Roy, Jamal Crawford, and several other stars in the charity game. After getting that haircut, he’s now in the company of Evan Longoria, Tracy Porter, and Tony Allen who have all had crazy things shaved into their heads. Maybe this is the route Nate Robinson should have gone instead of his permanent Seattle skyline tattoo.
