LeBron James has done everything right since debuting as a 17-year-old kid. But one thing, which was kinda out of his hands was to maintain a hairline.
When the Lakers superstar’s career finally started going forward, his hairline moved backward. During his Miami Heat days, LeBron won 2 NBA titles in 4 years, but it seems as though the grit took a toll on King and he started losing his hair.
And since then, his hairline jokes are as famous in and around the league as his GOAT debates. He is not the only hooper with a receding hairline though, NBA guys have always had this problem.
The Lakers might be the best team in the NBA, but its players have struggled to keep their hair
From Kareem-Abdul-Jabbar in the 80s to recently traded GOAT, Alex Caruso, the Lakers have had their fair share of bald guys. Even the real Lakers GOAT Kobe Bryant had an afro but decided to rock the bald look once he started losing it.
As the internet legend of Alex Caruso grows, so does his game.

Shaq had an afro? Well, that seems like it never happened. Also, like Jordan and Kobe, LeBron should have gone full bald since he started loosing it, would have rocked it with that beard.

Fans always love making fun of players from courtside or on social media.
Bald NBA players wearing headbands look like running roll on deodorants.

Lakers are not the only team featuring top notch-bald payers, the 2008 champion Boston Celtics had an NBA All-bald starting lineup in Kevin Garnett, Paul Pierce, Ray Allen, Rajon Rondo, and few rotating bald guys.
