PSA: Don’t make fun of Matt Harpring’s hair. Matty don’t like it.
On the talk about his hair
No, it’s irritated me since Day 1…[It’s not Boler.] It’s kinda been everyone else. I don’t understand it, but whatever. When I played, I could never play with long hair with it flapping in your eyes and when you sweat. I just couldn’t do that. Now that I’m not playing, my wife likes my hair a little bit long, so she gets my hair a little bit long. If she liked it short, it’d be short. (KFAN)
Interesting. Matt also uses the ol’ “my wife likes it” bit used by Andrei Kirilenko to explain his bad hair.
Speaking of which, everyone needs to watch the highlights below from a 2004 game between the Jazz and the Nuggets–for the awful hair.
Apart from Carmelo Anthony’s cornrows, Andre Miller’s fro, and Keith McLeod’s braids, you also get to see Andrei and Memo sporting such badly-executed frosted tips that I’m certain they did each other’s hair during a road trip to Milwaukee or something.
Inset left to right: Good Hair Matt Harpring, Frosted Tips Memo Okur, Pre-Fame Kris Humphries, and Young Raja Bell.
Plus, vintage AK highlights and the dulcet tones of Hot Rod on the call. Good times.
