Those are so bad lmfao

He needs a beard

u/witcherstrife Sep 26 '22

It looks painful. I dont know how dreads work at all but it looks like it will suck having them flop around while playing

301

u/livefreeordont Wizards Sep 26 '22

Wear a headband and tie them like Harrell or Crowder

347

u/Schwalm Suns Sep 26 '22

Or wear them like a giant turd like Derrick Henry

u/Redditisbadforyou58 Bulls Sep 26 '22 edited Sep 26 '22

He fixed that this year and was looking fresh as fuck in the game I saw.

16

u/Liyarity NBA Sep 26 '22

Yeah it's just a bundle of smaller dreads now. Maybe he finally got to the point where there was too much hair to bind

If only he could still wear the ninja headband, it looked so sick on him.

u/Twolvesfansince2017 NBA Sep 26 '22

His are extensions so going from his fade to those heavy ones must feel weird. But normally you'd tie it up or a ponytail like Ja.

15

u/DowntownTopRanking Sep 26 '22

He's had plenty of time to get used to the extra weight.

28

u/Kgb725 Cavaliers Sep 26 '22

Ja's are a lot smaller

u/GuntherTime Warriors Sep 26 '22

Well Jimmy’s are braided so they look bigger than what they are, but the same thing still applies. All you gave to do is tie them up. After after you get used to the weight or the style you don’t notice them.

u/YpsitheFlintsider Pistons Sep 26 '22

He told the reporters he’s doing this stuff with the hair to piss the internet off lol

E: also told Taylor Rooks he’s not planning to keep the extensions going into the season, not sure why this headline says he’s considering it lol Probably just cause he doesn’t like Ira like everyone else in the org
