(capsule) Hats For LeBron

June 20, 2013 BY OBI ANYANWU


Game 7 of the NBA Finals is tonight, and we’re on edge. We’ve trash talked through the entire series that went tit for tat between the San Antonio Spurs and the Miami Heat. The most notable part of Game 6 last Tuesday is not the Heat’s late game comeback or overtime. The most notable part is that LeBron James is now 1-for-1 when playing sans headband. As basketball fans, we know how much LeBron depends on his headband…

As men, we shouldn’t joke about LeBron’s hair. Male patterned baldness is unforgiving and crippling. Your flowing locks begin to disappear before you can appreciate it. You know how Samson lost his strength because Delilah cut his hair? It’s real! All of your confidence is gone the second you notice that your hair is thinning.

At Game 6, LeBron proved that he’s a different animal. He took the one thing that scares men and made it his strength. It’s pretty inspiring actually. LeBron wears his headband during games so that he can live sans headwear after the game. Sure there’s a Yankee fitted here or there, but for the most part his forehead is on display off the court.

Bron, you shouldn't quit cold turkey. You have to make a smooth and easy transition into accepting your hairline and putting it on display. So for your upcoming off days, we’ve rounded up a few hats from our brands that you can rock during the off season.

Muttonhead-hat-for-LeBron-we-are-the-marketMuttonhead x TOPO 5 Panel Black & Cord at Muttonhead

This 5 Panel snapback is super low-key. It's a good nighttime, hanging out with my crew from the State Farm commercial, in Los Angeles for the weekend, about to meet up with Kobe and Dwight hat. This collaboration cap is unisex too, so if you feel like throwing it on a girl's head while you're grinding on her, you'll definitely win her over.
