    Default WSJ: Grooming Secrets of the NBA

    Probably more than you wanted to know about Hibbert, GHill, and Butler.

    I will never understand people who product in their hair before working out or playing sports.

    "I put it on after the games whenever I'm ashy," Hibbert said. "It just smells really good."

    "We always say you're supposed to look on the inside first, but we know that's false. Everyone looks on the outside."
    - George Hill being real
    "We've got to be very clear about this. We don't want our players hanging around with murderers," said Larry Bird, Pacers president.

    The added care fits with the (quite literal) exposure that basketball players have while competing. Unlike other sports, where a helmet or uniform covers an athlete's face or body, basketball players are on full display during a game. "We're a walking billboard," says Chandler Parsons of the Houston Rockets. "You want to look good to everyone who is watching."
    Who know, I've never thought to myself, "man, I like those shoes but (X player) didn't do his hair last game, I think I'll go with another pair," I get the concept of being a walking billboard, but doesn't mean potential seers of said board really care about how stinky you might be while playing.
    Just because you're offended, doesn't mean you're right.” ― Ricky Gervais.

    What if someone from a school of business or management school were to ask, How did you do this? How did you get the Pacers turned around? Is there a general approach you've taken that can be summarized?

    Larry Bird: Yeah, patience.

    Actually, it's a common problem with black people. Because their skin is dark you can really tell when it gets dry (or ashy) and black people will make fun of each other for looking ashy (Google Ashy Larry). It's not really a metrosexual thing at all, most black people care about it.

    Back in the 50's it was normal for players on the road to not wash their uniforms or shower before games, just to make it harder for the other team to guard them....lol

    You really never heard of getting Ashy?? You must not hoop very often or not from that life. Hell I put lotion on even when I am not hooping. It really isn't a laughing matter. Prevention is the best solution to ashy elbows and legs . Like the other poster said yes you will get raged on for being ashy it really is nasty looking lol.
