Tom Brady’s new weird hair style featured a pompadour-like faux-hawk (Picture)

The Patriots haven’t won a Super Bowl since the 2004 season, and there are many suggestions why. Their defense isn’t as good. It’s karma for spygate. They’ve gotten too cocky. I’ve heard all the excuses. But I think we can zero-in on the real answer: Tom Brady becoming too fashion-conscious.

Brady attended the Met Gala in New York City on Monday night along with wifey Gisele Bundchen, and he drew plenty of attention for his new hair style. Brady was wearing some sort of pompadour-faux-hawk hybrid cut, which was different from the way his hair was styled at the Kentucky Derby over the weekend. Brady’s hair mohawked, but only on the side of his head, kind of like a pompadour, or a gumby, if you will. To be truthful, it wasn’t as bad as the ponytail look he had for Carnival in Rio last year, but it was bad.

Brady’s been called out by teammates for his girly hair, and even Justin Bieber has called him out, too.

Tom has the kind of good looks that land him a wife like Gisele. Why mess it up with such awful hair styles like this?

Nick Young wears one of the ugliest shirts you’ll ever see (Picture)

After the Clippers huge overtime win against the Grizzlies on Monday night that gave them a 3-1 series lead, Nick Young decided to play a practical joke on the media. Do we know for sure that it was a practical joke? Absolutely not, but we’re trying to convince ourselves that that was the case. As you can see from the photo above, Young took the podium wearing one of the ugliest shirts you’ll ever see. When Chris Paul pointed out that it was Young who got the Clippers going with a big three-pointer, Nick credited his post-game wardrobe selection.

“It’s the shirt, man,” Young said with a smile.

“What do you want me to say?” Paul said when a reporter asked for his thoughts on the shirt. “All I’m saying is you’ve got to feel pretty good about yourself to wear that shirt.”

With everyone in the media howling, Young then got up and gave his seat to Blake Griffin, who was dressed in a standard shirt, tie, and sport coat. Griffin may have scored 30 points to Young’s nine, but Young left more of a lasting impression with the ridiculous shirt. Outfits like this one tend to have that effect on people.

Martell Webster’s hair is getting out of hand (Pictures)

Timberwolves swingman Martell Webster has been rocking a funky ‘do for a bit now, but it only came to my attention recently. He’s got the sides shaved and the top long in stringy tight curls. Some people may like it, but then you have guys like Phoenix analyst Eddie Johnson, who said commissioner David Stern needed to step in and do something about it. I agree — the Class Act/Coolio cut went out 20 years ago, no sense in bringing it back, Martell.

Carlos Boozer spray-painted his hair for Bulls-Celtics game (Picture)

It’s not often that we have to bust out the fashion police here at LBS, but Carlos Boozer’s spray paint job on his head Sunday definitely called for it. We have no idea if he lost a bet or if he thought nobody would notice, but we did. It takes a pretty awful haircut to become a trending topic on Twitter, so congrats on that, Carlos.

For comparison, below is a shot of how Boozer’s hair normally looks.

Josh Freeman Fro Is Getting Pretty Crazy

Tampa Bay Buccaneers QB Josh Freeman is pretty unique, and it’s not just because of all the success he’s had as a young quarterback. He’s one of the few athletes left that still proudly rocks an exceptional fro. The impressive Josh Freeman fro was on full display Thursday when he joined Jim Rome is Burning on ESPN:

I don’t mind the look at all, but I think it’s getting somewhat out of hand. Not this bad, but it’s getting out there. After Freeman cleared the set, Houston Texans running back Arian Foster stepped up with Rome. When Rome mentioned how big Freeman is, Foster offered up this completely on his own “I dunno about his hairdo though, that’s not my style.” Ouch. I’m guessing Freeman will keep that in mind if the teams meet next season.

So what do you think, should the fashion police arrest Freeman or not?

Amare Stoudemire in a Sailor Outfit

Carmelo Anthony and LaLa Vazquez had their highly publicized wedding on Saturday night in New York. LeBron James flew in from South Beach in time to celebrate with his fellow ’03 draft buddy. LeBron wasn’t the only NBA guest in attendance — both Kenyon Martin of the Nuggets and Amare Stoudemire of the Knicks were there too. I’m not sure if Amare was making a fashion statement or if the sailor look was part of the wedding’s theme for the bridesmaids and best men, but it looked pretty darn funny either way. Here’s a picture of Amare Stoudemire at Carmelo Anthony’s wedding via Kim Kardashian’s twitter account (Amare’s on the far right, just call him Skipper):

K-Mart was rocking the vest but he didn’t have the white pants and hat to match, so he wasn’t in the same ballpark. Plus, gotta love how Kim Kardashian is front-and-center in the picture. Isn’t it just like her to steal the spotlight from the people getting married?

Shaq Joins the Bow Tie Revolution

Last week it was Heat star Dwyane Wade getting called out by the fashion police for his Batmobile outfit. This time, it’s another NBA player in the playoffs who committed the sin. Shaq decided to join Dhani Jones’ corner by representing with a bow tie at the post Cavs/Bulls Game 5 press conference. This may be the only thing Shaq has in common with Bruce Bowen. Here’s a picture of Shaq’s bow tie:

Someone tell Shaq his bow tie is crooked and that a little more chrome and he’ll be one of those silver robots. Yikes!
