We linked to Michael Beasley's(notes) 'fro in Monday's 10-Man Rotation, but something this glorious, this Lady Rage epic, deserves a post, photo and BDL category of its own. (Side note: Thoughts on Splitting Hairs, anyone? How about Coif Rock? Phenomenal Shag? I'm putting way too much thought into this.)
With braids out and 'fro full extended, the second-year Miami Heat power forward figured he measured in "at about seven foot one."
Whether the 'fro remains in place for Tuesday night's game against the visiting Washington Wizards is another story.
"I haven't decided yet," he said with a smile of the unkempt billow. "I don't know."
You can decide for yourself whether it's a good look, though be forewarned: SuperCoolBeas' teammates might sway your opinion.
Joel Anthony(notes) compared the new look to a "character from the 'Lion King,'" while others cracked all Beasley needed to complete his outfit was some shoes with goldfish in the bottom, like Antonio Fargas in the movie, "I'm Gonna Git You Sucka." Maybe he can play in similar kicks.
