Default Nba players hairs.

Hi guys, how come NBA players are all, what I assume is, shaved everywhere on their body BUT don't seem to care about facial hair and whatnot ? Why would they shave their legs etc. ?

Harden being the worse offender..

Is there a reason or is it just Fashion ?

Dude, those are close-up on their legs and arms. No hairs to be found.

-Legs are shaved because of tape jobs (ankles). Tape goes on and off much easier than when one has no leg hair.

-Most Black men aren't hairy to begin with when it comes to arm/leg hair.

-Most Black men don't sport the bald face look unless they absolutely have to. The only Black men I know of who always have a bald face are those in the military and a sizeable percentage of corporate executives/high level professionals.

If you've ever had your ankles strapped you wouldn't ask this.

if you have hairy legs it can make getting constant massages more difficult too.

Thank you guys. So I guess it's the same things for arms. Most don't shave hairpits though.. Pretty funny.

See, Payton ain't shaving anything. This just confirms what I thought. Dem fashion victims.
