Hairstyle evolution of Jimmy Butler 

The Small Forward has a lot of expectations regarding his performance over the course of the 2022-23 season and to add more hype to his on-court show, he put on a new hair style which immediately became a talk of the town.

He was seen with long deadlocks and a clean-shaved face during several interviews ahead of his regular season games. Watching his style, people started commenting if those deadlocks were real and some also expressed their opinion of the basketball star’s having extensions.

Amid these speculations about his style, the six times NBA All-Star had this to say on his defense- “I don’t have any extensions; I’m just messing with stuff to make the internet mad. That was my goal this summer, and it worked.”

It’s pretty obvious that he was joking about his extensions because before that he had shorter hair and none can grow 12 inch long deadlocks within the period of a month. Moreover, besides Butler, some other NBA players are moving towards long hair style including Markelle Fultz, JaVale McGee, Derrick Rose, and DeAndre Jordan to name a few.

An athlete who can rock on the court can rock on fashion too as Jimmy Butler bears the perfect example of that. This basketball player never said no to any fashion trend which attained his attention. Perhaps, a new trend or new fashion style fills up his heart to showcase the best athletics that he had hidden within himself.
