In honor of Brandon Jennings busting out a money hairstyle, I bring you great moments in Flat Top / Hi-Top Fade History. Sure my memory could probably use a refresher when it comes to finding the best of the best, but here's essentially the best of what I remember. So feel free to email away any additions.
Yesterday CWebb retired so of course the Fab Five is going to be on my mind. And no one quite rocked a flat top in the NCAA Finals quite like Juwan Howard.
I certainly hate Duke, but the Hill boys always rocked out a solid flat top during their dominant days at Duke.
Why were they the dream team? The flat top of course. Patrick Ewing, Scottie Pippen, Chris Mulling, and the Admiral all rocked out flat tops. That's a high powered flat top squad.
Kendell Gill always rocked out a solid flat top.
Detlef Schrempf adds to the contigent of white flat tops.
White guys really do look miserable in a flat top. Kind of like Eric Montross's basketball skills.
Dee Brown rocked out the Hi-Top fade blindfolded while wearing Pumps.
Back in his Prime Greg Anthony Rocked out the Hi-Top Fade with the Runnin Rebs.
So what if Drago didn't play Basketball in Rocky, in the true story Drago was a punishing Communist Power Forward that lead the Ruskies over the US of A.
Please let me know some of the great Flat Tops / Hi-Top Fades I foolishly missed.
