LeBron James posts photo of bald shaved head
LeBron James nearly broke the internet with his new hairdo.
On Tuesday, the Lakers star shared a photo to his Instagram story that showed him sporting a completely bald shaven head.
James, who turns 38 in December, is pictured smiling while sitting down, wearing a barber cape. Nick “Slick” Castellanos, James’ personal barber, appears to be standing off to the side in the photo.
The four-time NBA champ added a grandpa emoji, along with a bunch of crying-laughing emojis over the selfie snap.
Although James appears to have shaved his head, some people on social media are calling his bluff. Critics on Twitter have also questioned if the photo was edited or filtered.
Former NBA guard Evan Turner was also hesitant to believe the hype about James going bald.
“Ain’t no way LeBron went bald,” Turner tweeted Tuesday. “Is this true?”
James has been laughing off jokes about his hairline for years.
In August 2020, James poked fun at his then-balding head and compared his hairline to a partial Reese’s Peanut Butter Cup.
At the time, James took to his Instagram story and shared a side-by-side photo of the back of his head and a Reese’s cup with the center missing.
“One of the funniest ones I’ve seen,” James wrote over the photo, referring to the meme.
Last season, “Inside the NBA” co-host Charles Barkley joked that James was “wearing the biggest headband in the world to cover up that bald spot.”
James has continued to entertain fans throughout this offseason. Last week, the Lakers great and his family were featured in Vanity Fair, which published photos that were taken inside his Los Angeles mansion.
James and his wife Savannah posed for their first-ever family portraits with their three kids: sons Bronny, 17, Bryce, 15, and daughter Zhuri, 7. James’ mother Gloria is included in the photos, along with Savannah’s parents, Jennifer and JK.
Later on Tuesday, James was busy getting shots up at Summit New York gym with NBA skills trainer Chris Brickley. James had his head covered in a black durag.
James, who’s entering his 20th NBA season, re-signed with the Lakers last month on a two-year, $97.1 million contract extension, which includes a player option for 2024-25.
