LeBron James has been trying to hold onto his hairline throughout his career, but finally came clean this week regarding his impending baldness.
After eliminating the Boston Celtics in the Eastern Conference Finals on Thursday (May 25), LeBron spoke to the media… where he praised his idol, Michael Jordan, from his shooting style to his sneakers.
Then, he threw in a little joke about something else they have in common: their hair loss.
“I did pretty much everything MJ did when I was a kid. I shot fadeaways before I should have, I wore leg sleeves on my leg and folded it down so you saw the red part… I didn’t go bald like Mike, but uhhhh… I’m getting there,” LeBron said with a smile. “I’m getting there, but it’ll be post-career. That’s the only thing I didn’t do.”
Bron has been trying to conceal his receding hairline for years, which has been a topic on the internet forever. From his oversized (maybe double?) headband to his blatant hair treatments. Even the developers of NBA 2K has had some fun with it.
Too funny!! His Cavs teammate Tristan Thompson has the best reaction in the video. Check him out behind LeBron in the video.
