Allen Iverson Cuts His Trademark Braids
My reaction, after the jump.
Today Allen Iverson showed up to the Eastern Conference All-Star practice with a new look. After 12-plus years with his trademark cornrow hair style, A.I. decided to trim them off. This is a big story because, when you think cornrows, the first thing that usually comes to mind is Allen Iverson. He basically started the trend in the NBA and still stuck with them even after many players cut theirs off. Just google "Allen Iverson Braids" or "Allen Iverson Cornrows" and you'll know what I am talking about.
This is also big because Iverson was often adamant that he had no plans to ever trim his trademark 'rows. Slam Online's Lang Whitaker reported via Twitter that A.I. plans on sending this trimmed hair to his mother as keepsake. The times, they are a-changin'. The next thing you know, A.I. will be headed to laser-remove his tattoos.
