John Calipari’s quarantine hair (and accompanying beard) have been big topics of discussion since the sports world shut down in March. I know it’s not the most exciting topic but hey, there’s not much else to talk about on a sports blog these days.
It started off with some subtle stubble, which began popping up during Calipari’s constant ZOOM calls with his former players, celebrity friends and community activists. Then, his eldest daughter Erin gave the Twitter-verse an update on her old man’s facial hair by tweeting this picture, which is made complete by the family pets and a tortilla blanket.
But now, John Calipari is well on his way to a man bun. We need to talk about it.
Ellen posted this picture of her “Fabio” on Instagram. Do you see the similarities?
Jamal Murray is also embracing a new hairstyle, even as he adjusts to life inside the NBA’s bubble. The former Cat compared his new hairdo to Kareem Abdul-Jabbar’s iconic style from back in the day. The Denver Nuggets posted a video of him practicing late Saturday night, and I hardly recognized him.

No judgement here. It’s a global pandemic; there are no rules when it comes to hair care.
