New York Knicks guard Iman Shumpert has been playing well for the New York Knicks, he even earned a starting position on the team as a result of his efforts. However, he wasn’t recognized for his game on the court, he was best known for his impeccable flattop.
Entering this season, Shumpert decided to cut away the very thing that identified him on and off the court, but that’s Shumpert’s point: His personality had grown larger than the team. He had moved away from basketball as his primary focus and needed to gather himself to win an NBA championship.
A photo of the 6-foot-5, 220-pound guard has surfaced online with him sitting in a locker room, without his iconic hairstyle.
Shumpert has even made a video explaining why he cut his hair/brand, which can be seen in the video player below.
