Afro-Kyrie was a bold and refreshing look.
Though, for some reason, it didn’t translate well on the basketball court. To be blunt, he was just awful.
All of his averages were down, his shooting percentage was low, and he was failing to match the MVP-performance standard that was set for him for this upcoming season.

Apparently, all it took was some razors.
Since cutting his hair, Irving is shooting 52/51/96 shooting splits on 23.5 points per game and 5.5 assists.
Coming off the cut, Kyrie is a different man, and while the Celtics may be struggling now, they should be able to bounce back pretty soon with him leading the helm.
A lesson here: sometimes, it’s the little things that matter. Afro-Irving looked nice while it lasted, but it just wasn’t what the guy needed to ball.
Numbers never lie...
