Dozens of American-based athletes have showcased new looks as they begin to emerge from quarantine and prepare for the restart operations of their respective leagues. As far as the NBA is concerned, we've seen LeBron James go full caveman with his facial hair and Nikola Jokic lose an incredible amount of weight.
Well, we can now add Jayson Tatum to the growing list.
The Boston Celtics star, who normally sports your classic buzzcut, can be seen with his hair as long as it's ever been dating back to his days at Duke.
Basketball fans likely had grown accustomed to Tatum's beard before play was suspended in mid-March, but there's no doubting that it looks thicker than ever in this photo.
Now, back to the matter at hand. When you see someone with short hair for so long, you almost become convinced that it's impossible for them to grow it out to the point where it has "flow." That's precisely how shocked we were by Tatum's curly waves.
Something tells us that the 22-year-old stud could don an afro if he went another several months without getting a cut. This new look from Tatum will only give him more swagger when he's back to dropping 25 points a night when the NBA season resumes at Disney World in late July.
