LeBron James’ sons have awesome Kid ‘n Play haircuts (Picture)

LeBron James' sons Kid 'N Play

The contest for best haircut on an athlete’s son is over. Everyone else can go home. LeBron James’ sons win.

James shared the photo you see above on his Instagram and Twitter accounts early Wednesday morning, captioning it, “New House Party movie coming soon! Starring Bronny and Bryce #aintgonehurtnobody.”

In case you’re unfamiliar, Kid ‘n Play (pictured on the right) are an early-90s hip-hop group known for their raps and dance moves. They were the main characters in three different versions of “House Party,” which James references. I was more of a “Class Act” guy — Doug E. Doug owned in that movie — but House Party was solid.

LeBron James Jr. aka “Bronny” needs about four more inches to match Kid’s famous hi-top fade, but we’ll give him credit for even rocking the classic ‘do in the first place. The big question is, can LeBron’s sons do the Funky Charleston?

Nick Young gets a horrible haircut (Picture)


Philadelphia 76ers guard Nick Young has a very unique sense of fashion. His new haircut reminds us of that.

On Monday, Young shared a photo on Twitter of his new haircut. Much like a mullet, the new look is business in the front and a party in the back. Basically Young just had his head buzzed but left everything at the bottom of his hairline near his neck.

Surprised? You shouldn’t be. This is the same dude who decided it was a good idea to wear this horrible shirt to a press conference during the playoffs last year. Either he likes screwing with people, or Young just enjoys looking bad.

Coyotes goalie Mike Smith gets a haircut, now has a mean mullett (Picture)


Prior to this week, Phoenix Coyotes goalie Mike Smith had been growing out his hair for a very long time. As you can see from the photo above on the left, he had one of the raddest hairstyles in the NHL for all of last season and into this year. Many fans will be disappointed to hear that Smith recently cut his hair — until they see his new haircut.

The photo above on the right shows Smith’s new haircut, which is nothing shy of phenomenal. If you thought authentic mulletts became extinct in the 1980s, think again. Evander Kane may have decided to go modern with the rapper-influenced haircut he recently got, but Smith is here to keep things old school. Here is a straight-on shot that the Coyotes posted on Twitter:

Evander Kane gets a ‘YMCMB’ haircut as tribute to Lil Wayne (Picture)


Winnipeg Jets winger Evander Kane is a big Lil Wayne fan. Anyone who follows him on Twitter is aware of that, since he often tweets lines from Weezy’s songs. Last season, he seemed to use Lil Wayne lines to respond to criticism he was hearing from Winnipeg fans and the media when he was in the middle of a goal drought.

On Friday, Kane shared a few photos of his new haircut on Twitter. For those of you who didn’t know, “YMCMB” is an acronym for “Young Money Cash Money Billionaires,” which is a reference to Lil Wayne’s Young Money record label.

Apparently Kane is an even bigger Lil Wayne fan than we thought. Jets fans would probably prefer him to get a haircut that shows team spirit like the one Raptors forward Amir Johnson has, but it’s not their hair. His hair, his choice.

San Jose State S Cullen Newsome gets Military Bowl haircut (Picture)


With college bowl season comes bowl-themed haircuts, and at least one San Jose State player unveiled one of the better ones earlier this week. According to Dan Steinberg of D.C. Sports Bog, the head you see above appears to belong to safety Cullen Newsome. The Spartans will take on Bowling Green in the Military Bowl on Thursday, and Newsome decided to honor the occasion with a bowl-themed buzz cut that also includes the San Jose State logo.

Newsome’s haircut is almost as detailed as the one Raptors forward Amir Johnson recently unveiled, but he’s lacking color. Perhaps he didn’t want dye running all over his head while wearing a helmet. Some of these smaller bowl games don’t get the hype they deserve, but kudos to the players for taking the time to appreciate the occasion.

Amir Johnson shows his loyalty with a Raptors haircut (Picture)


Amir Johnson is in his fourth season with the Toronto Raptors, and the power forward is damn proud of it. If you weren’t aware of that before Friday morning, you are now.

Johnson tweeted a photo of his new haircut early Friday morning, which includes the Raptors’ logo — color and all. We have seen athletes shave their team’s logo into their standard haircut or their sweet high-top fade before big games, but Johnson took the detail to another level.

Should Johnson earn himself another ejection for throwing a tantrum like this one, NBA officials will now be frightened as they look at the back of his head while he’s walking off the court. That’s just one of many perks this haircut is going to provide.

Student sent home for Johnny Manziel haircut

A high school student in Texas was sent home from school on Thursday for his “inappropriate” haircut that featured a portrait of Texas A&M star quarterback Johnny Manziel, ESPN’s Bill Speros reports.

According to Speros, 17-year-old Christian Chavez of Kerrville, Tex., responded to a Facebook offer from “Rob the Original,” a San Antonio barber who is known for creating unique haircuts. Rob was offering to cut a portrait of Manziel into someone’s hair for free, so Chavez took him up on it. The teenager headed to the shop to have his hair done, and was sporting the style by the end of the day Wednesday.

Unfortunately for Chavez, officials at his high school weren’t as enthusiastic about the ‘do.

Chavez was sent home from school by the principal and told not to return until the Manziel portrait was removed from his head. He says he was told the haircut “was inappropriate for school policy.”

Chavez seems disappointed because he says he loves the haircut. Before transferring to Hill Country High School in Kerrville, he played JV football at Tivy High School, where Manziel played. He says his older brother played with Manziel.

He’s planning to keep it a few more days before getting it removed..

“Might as well keep it keep it tomorrow (Friday) and get it cut either Sunday or Monday. I thought I would be fine,” he said. “I was surprised. My mom came and got me. She didn’t like the fact they told me to go home.”

If this story sounds familiar, it’s because we’ve encountered this situation many times in the past. A San Antonio middle school student was sent home from school in May for his Matt Bonner haircut that paid tribute to the Spurs forward. In 2009, a middle school student in Houston was sent home from school for sporting a Houston Rockets logo in his head, similar to Ron Artest’s former hairstyle.

Below is a video of Rob the Original working on the Johnny Manziel haircut:
