Deron Williams has been freed aka The History of the Utah Jazz and Headbands

March 5, 2011

Ty Corbin shortly after taking over as head coach:

The popular belief is that Jerry Sloan had an outright ban on headbands because he wanted the emphasis on “team” rather than “individual.” According to Ronnie Brewer during a radio interview some years ago, however, Jerry’s policy was actually “everyone or no one.”

When Ronnie B and Paul Millsap were chosen to play in the All-Star Rookie-Sophomore Game in 2008, Ronnie tried to convince Paul to wear a headband. Paul was having none of it (“I’m old-school, you know”), so Ronnie did so on his own (“I’m probably gonna get fined when I go back to Utah” /desnews):

The Nets played the Raptors in London Baby! (Joey Tribbiani reference) today, and Deron was making the most of his newfound freedom:

Contrary to popular opinion, this has nothing to do with hiding his hairline since the region he would want to hide is the part that’s exposed within the circle of the headband in the back. Let’s just hope that he doesn’t start taking accessory hints from Sasha Vujacic and start sporting that thin little hairband Sasha got from the Lakers dancers.

    I’m pretty sure the popular opinion is that Deron has a hugely receding hairline at the front, and he’s been covering it up with a really obvious comb-forward. You know, the exact place that this headband covers.
