The NBA has been struck by a tiny wave of early 1990s nostalgia as players are slowly starting to grow their hair out, grow it straight up, trim the sides and manicure themselves a beautiful, sometimes majestic hi-top fade.
Popularized by the likes of Will Smith in The Fresh Prince of Bel Air and Christopher Reid in Kid 'N' Play, the hi-top is a haircut that is envied by many, but perfected by very few.
Well, Norris Cole was really the guy to reintroduce it to the NBA, coming out of Cleveland State with a perfectly groomed, perfectly styled and expertly faded hairstyle, but he's not the guy that's getting all of the play thanks to the fade.
That, of course, would be Iman Shumpert.
While Shump's fade isn't as neat, and at times looks much more out of control than Cole's, his fade attracts much more attention and reaches greater heights, quite literally.
Watching Shump trot up and down the court with that beauty waving in the wind, it's easy to wonder what somebody like Jason Kidd or Carmelo Anthony would look with his hair-do.
Wait, you guys haven't wondered that same thing? Well, it doesn't matter, I've thrown the fade onto each member of the Knicks to see who rocks it best.
Everyone hold back your praise for my Photoshop skills. Just sit back and admire the hi-top fade.
