NBA superstar LeBron James may want to give an all-expenses paid offer to close pal Jay Z‘s personal barber Johnny Cake after the stylist recently talked about trying to save his hairline. #donttouchthehair
In Cake’s opinion, LeBron should have considered his services a few years ago.
“LeBron at this point? He might be a little too far gone. [laughs] But if I was cutting it earlier, I think I would be preserving his hair, you know what I’m saying? Fading around what he’s got going on now, where I feel they’re not doing that now. I’m like anti-pushing hairlines back.” (TMI)
Last fall, 2K Sports admitted it did not give King James any special treatment in regard to his hair for video game NBA 2K14.
The people behind the video game NBA 2K14 tell TMZ … they weren’t trying to be haters when they receded LeBron James’ hairline on his digital avatar — they’re just keepin’ it real. In case you haven’t seen the images, 2K14 LeBron is WAYYYYY balder than 2K13 LeBron … and conspiracy theorists are suggesting the designers are anti-LBJ fans who were just trying to troll the guy. But we spoke with a rep for the company behind the game … who tells us the digital art is simply imitating real life — “We strive for current realism.” LeBron now joins the ranks of other legendary bald video characters … including King Hippo, Dhalsim, the guy from Hitman, Pac-Man, Ms. Pac-Man and Kirby. Congrats. (TMZ)
Recently, Young Money’s Drake talked about Bron leaving the Miami Heat to return home to Cleveland.
“I think for the last week and a half I’ve probably been bothering LeBron as much as the press has trying to figure out what his decision was going to be. I think we were all extremely intrigued by what stage of his life he’s in. And I don’t think there’s a better way to deal with it than what he just did. I think if we were to give out an award at the ESPYS for incredible essay writing, I would definitely love to present that to him because I think that what he just did was patriotic in its own way, was courageous, and I think it’s going to obviously be one of the most historic things of our generation.” (Stereo Gum)
The Toronto native also promised he would reach out to King James to personally congratulate him.
“And I’m just honored to know him and glad that I got to — no pun intended — witness this moment. I think it’s an incredible thing. I actually woke up kind of late today, so I’m just catching on. It’s a great feeling for me. I can’t wait to get off this call and call him myself and tell him how proud I am of him because he’s been a friend of mine for a long time.” (Stereo Gum)
