Default What's the story behind Boozer's and Battier's wrinkled heads?







When the arena lights catches these guys heads just right both of these dudes look like Shar Pei's. What gives?

Looks like they suffer from "Cutis verticis"

I think it's genetic and/or unavoidable.

But if it's caused by hats, thankfully I never wore them except for little league.

Cutis verticis gyrata

https://www.google.com/search?q=Cuti...Xmiw LWmYHYCw

Genetics + acromegaly (excessive growth hormone levels due to pituitary gland tumours), excessive drug use that mimics acromegaly (including the injection of growth hormone itself and drugs that stimulate growth hormone output, such as GHRP-6 and CJC-1295), melanocytic naevi (moles), birthmarks (including connective tissue naevi, fibromas and naevus lipomatosus), and inflammatory processes (e.g., eczema, psoriasis, Darier disease, folliculitis, impetigo, atopic dermatitis, acne).

Not really that bad. Just cosmetic.
