I'm sure he thinks he's discovered a "cool" trademark, with that mate of hair hanging in front of his face.
 
If I were the owner of that team, he'd either cut that ridiculous looking thing hanging in front of his face or be gone.

If I remember properly, he and his high school vars team made a vow not to cut their hair until they won a high school championship. They didn't win it so he never cut his hair. I actually think it's cool. Sort of like a momento of his former teammates. Maybe he'll cut it if he gets a ring?

Lol I'd let him grow it out, it's just hair.

The idea of his hair causing him to airball a shot is funny, but he released the shot after the ball touched his hair, so I'm not sure if that counts. I do wonder if he has altered the mechanics of his shot to compensate for his hair, which is beyond ridiculous. I also wonder if the coaches have discussed this with him. If I was a coach, I would have asked him to wear some sort of hair net and working on his mechanics (during the off season). The dude can flat out not shoot as it is, so any improvement would help him and the team.

Finally? A mirror was as legit a reason as he should ever need.

Inarguably the worst hairstyle in the NBA today. Just terrible.

in the NBA? surely, like 100%

in the sport world, probably top 5

In the world top 10

it is disrespectful to the game IMHO, it looks terrible, it affects your play and the opposition players.

I like his game, but the hair has to go in order for me to consider him a serious player

Why would it be disrespectful to the game, or why would he have to cut to in order for you to take him seriously as a player? From what I can tell, his game as improved every year since he's been in the league. If his hair had a legitimately negative impact on his game I think he'd cut it.

Just the fact that he's in the NBA would make me take him seriously as a basketball player. Something as trivial as his hair style shouldn't affect that at all imo.

Kid should just pull it back into some sort of ponytail or manbun during games. It has to effect his vision.

I have no problem with how he wants to wear his hair. I just think he should pull it off his face during games. I don't think its disrespectful and applaude him for expressing himself freely and individually through his hair style.

Because the first thing everybody says seeing him for the first time is like, what is that?
The first thing everybody is talking about is your hair...that is just not professional.
Like i said, everybody has its own opinion and life choices, but the kid would do himself a major one by getting that thing trimed

Payton looks like a complete clown - all in the name of being cool, I guess. There are many other mopheads in the league who are not far behind him. How is it that they think sticking your hair a foot straight up in the air and then desecrating your skin to look like the Illustrated Man is somehow an attractive look ??

Ok I get, we shave his hair off and he doesn't airball those anymore.

But, what do we do with bold guys that airball floaters?  ;D
