Knew York Knicks small forward Iman Shumpert generally draws double-takes for his massive flat-top, not the logos he shaves into the back of his head.
However, the NBA did not approve of an adidas logo Shumpert slipped in behind his ‘do. Why? According to CBS Sports, there can be no logos on players except for their shoes:
Sporting a corporate logo during games is indeed against NBA rules. Item 5 of Section H of the NBA rule book’s extended comments section, which governs “player/team conduct and dress”, reads: “The only article bearing a commercial ‘logo’ which can be worn by players is their shoes.”
Obviously, Shumpert wanted something funky in his head, so he kept the triangle, but at least the logo is gone.
Shumpert also apologized. The NBA is happy, and so are we — as long as he keeps that steezin’ within reason, right?
