Tony Allen Channels Dennis Rodman & Anthony Mason
Earlier this week it seemed like Tony Allen, the Memphis Grizzlies designated defensive stopper, was trying to get the Internet goin’ nutz (© Paul Wall) when he accused San Antonio Spurs guard Manu Ginobili of faking his elbow injury. Players rarely comment on opposing players’ injuries, and it seemed like a calculated move to draw attention to the Spurs-Grizzlies first-round playoff series. All it really created though was a minor ripple in the blogosphere.
Turns out, if Allen really wanted to get people flapping their virtual gums, all he had to do was get a haircut. One that featured a glitter-enhanced grizzly bear (actually the Memphis Grizzlies logo) shaved into the back of his head. Unfortunately, he had it shaved off before he could rock it on the court. Still, check out the end result below!
In terms of NBA hairstyles, where does Allen’s ‘do rank against these all-time greats?
