An athlete’s signature look can often times preceded them. Look at the uproar that ensued with LeBron James ditched is headband. And can you imagine if James Harden ever decided to take a razor to his face? Forget about it.
The same can be said of the Pirates’ Andrew McCutchen. He’s become known, not only for playing at a high level, but for his signature dreads too. But he decided to shave those off today for charity, apparently. He’ll probably improve his speed on the bases now, too.
