As everyone expected when it was announced, the J.J. Redick podcast has been absolutely wonderful. Redick has found a great balance of basketball and life when talking to his NBA friend guests and provided some wonderful listening when he gets to publish podcasts. This week new Brooklyn Nets guard Jeremy Lin joined Redick on the show and Redick came away with a big time scoop when Lin revealed how he would wear his hair this season.

"“This year is going to be a little bit less embarrassing. Actually shout out to our boy Spencer Hawes for rocking the double man bun, double pony tail with me. That was kind of embarrassing but we had to prove to ourselves that we had the courage to do it. This year is going to be a lot more braids and a lot more refined stuff now that my hair is long enough to do what I wanted to do with it.”"
The entire podcast is worth your time but listening to Redick uncover the story behind Lin’s hairstyles is incredible podcasting. It turns out that Lin and his friends decided to grow man buns for a trip to Asia last summer and everything took off from there. That said Lin now seems happy with the results.
"“The braid was pretty much the final thing. Now the evolution here is just the different types of braids and the styles and what I can do with it and once it gets even longer I will be able to do more with it."
It will be interesting to see if Lin gets creative with the braid styles or not but one thing remains clear. Jeremy Lin will once again be in the conversation for best/worst hair in the NBA this season.
Also somehow Spencer Hawes is boys with a lot of NBA players. Consider me surprised.
