Cleveland Cavaliers star LeBron James has endured endless jokes about his receding hairline over the years, but it appears as though he may have done something about it.
James’ hairline has retreated up his forehead for the best part of his career in the NBA, with his headband slipping further and further back in order to mask it during games.
As a result, the 29-year-old has been the subject of, perhaps slightly cruel, jokes about the state of his hair. However, it appears as though that time has come to an end, and barring a miracle re-growth, James has had something done.
Whether or not it is advanced hair treatment remains to be confirmed, with theories suggesting that it could either be a flattering camera angle or a patch-up job taking inspiration from Carlos Boozer.
However, given the depth and volume of hair even further back it is more than likely that James has had treatment as he looks ahead to making a splash this season after rejoining the Cavs.
The two-time NBA champion’s appearance also made the news earlier this summer as he looks slimmed down compared to last year, and it is widely suggested that it is due to a positional change in Cleveland this season as well as a move to help extend his career.
Nevertheless, it will be James’ hair renaissance which will now dominate the headlines…
