LeBron James is the face of the NBA, so naturally, when he does something to his face, people take notice. LeBron has looked much the same for the last few seasons, keeping a nice beard and extremely trimmed hair. His hair has been a topic of conversation that is sometimes even used to roast King James, as Stephon Marbury once did while talking about him.
A large part of the jokes about LeBron stems from the fact that he's had quite a bald spot for a while. As naturally gifted as he is in every aspect, his hair is where King James doesn't have it perfect; his hairline has been receding for ages now. And he seemingly recently gave up on trying to maintain it, finally shaving off the little bits that he used to keep around and went completely bald.
LeBron shared a photo on Instagram showing off his new look, and it garnered quite a bit of attention from people. Considering how many jokes have been made about it, this was to be expected, and fans had a bit of a field day with it.
