    NEW YORK Fear the beard?

    At the urging of small forward Quentin Richardson, the Orlando Magic have taken a cue from the world of hockey and said they've decided not to shave their faces until their playoff run ends, whenever that may be.

    "It's one of those team things," Richardson said. "Togetherness. It's something fun at the same time. It's going to definitely look funny, I know."

    The players said they collectively made the decision between Monday's victory over the Cleveland Cavaliers and Wednesday's win over the New York Knicks.

    "We talked about doing something as a team," center Dwight Howard said.

    "We thought about the bald heads, but some of us myself don't look right with a bald head. Then we thought about letting our hair grow out; then [we realized] we've got a lot of guys who are going bald, so [it would] look funny with just patches in their head.

    "So the beard is the only way to go. It'll be tough for me and the young guys to really get it going, but we're all in this together."

    Growing beards is a tradition in hockey, with players from the eventual Stanley Cup champions often hoisting the coveted trophy with ragged facial hair.

    Rather than wait until the NBA playoffs start in mid-April, Richardson has started growing his beard with three weeks remaining in their regular season. Other players say they've doing the same.

    The NBA Finals typically end in mid-June.

    I'd like to Pacers go bald and Rik and Derrick follow suit from the stands as well as Austin Croshere in the booth. That would be fun!

    I vote for having the players shave their heads...of course those players would be Reggie Miller et al.

    I don't think superstition is the right word. Growing beards, bald heads, black socks/shoes, it's all about team unity, not superstition. I doubt any of them thought doing so would give them magic powers or divine grace or anything.

    Prepare a little tap number with sparkly umbrellas and three part harmony... to be performed upon securing the 8th seed and the worst record of any playoff team in the 2011 playoffs.

    I hated it when they shaved their heads. Why do something that might make some players uncomfortable and possibly adversely affect their play? That's silly.

    Superstitions are made up crappy excuses to not do or not to do certain things, so no.
