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.
Former 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.
