Ball Don't Lie

Deron Williams’ haircut is still popular in Salt Lake City, even if D-Will isn’t

Deron Williams does not live in Salt Lake City anymore. He doesn't play for the Jazz. He's been a member of the New Jersey Nets for nearly a year after forcing a trade in a way by not signing a contract extension with Utah.

Stranger than that? Deron Williams, it should be pointed out and as you can see above, doesn't really have a "Deron Williams fade" (as you can see below) anymore.

And yet that hasn't stopped local Utah denizens from often requesting a "Deron Williams fade" in one local Salt Lake City barber shop. Check out this exchange between City Weekly's Colin Wolf and John from Ray's Barber Shop from earlier this week:

"Question, do people still request the Clooney?" I asked. "No, not really. But I get a lot of requests for the Deron Williams fade." "What?! Really?"

"What about Gordon Hayward? Does anyone come in for a Hayward shag?" John shook his head, "Nah, I specialize in fades, for the most part. I really don't like doing those Justin Bieber cuts."

Sad moral of the story? Devin Harris' haircut has no friends in the SLC.
