NBA LEGEND LeBron James is taking social media by storm.
Four-time NBA Champion James grabbed the headlines on Tuesday after debuting his new bald look.
The eighteen time NBA All-Star posted a photo of himself seemingly mid-trim on his Instagram, sporting his fresh style with a balding grandpa emoji followed by laughing faces.
But many have taken to social media to question whether or not the image was real.
Forms NBA player Evan turner tweeted: “Ain’t no way LeBron went bald.
Some people have suggested that the image could have been altered using a filter to make James look bald.
While others have brought up the fact that it’s looked like James has seemingly been balding for some time.
In 2020, James reshared an image that compared his bald spot to a partially damaged Reese’s Peanut Butter Cup, adding the caption: “One of the funniest ones I’ve seen.
“Hated when my Reese cup would do that but guess what I still kept it and ate it so [shrug emoji].”
However, others were quick to jump on the bandwagon, praising James for his decision.
Three-time NBA Champion Mario Elie commented on a copy of the image with “Love it welcome to the club King James”
Complex Sports shared an image of fellow greats Michael Jordan and Kobe Bryant who both went bald during their careers – drawing parallels between the three legends of the game.
Bald or not, 37-year-old James will be returning to the Los Angeles Lakers next season having signed a two-year contract extension in August worth $97.1 million.
