The latest branded item to be banished from the NBA is not a piece of footwear, but rather a very specific hairstyle. Iman Shumpert of the New York Knicks stirred up some trouble recently with his cut, which featured a pledge of allegiance to the three stripes in the form of the Adidas logo shaved into his instantly recognizable do. The cut was apparently a violation of the NBA’s uniform guidelines, with the corporate logo being on display and all. As you can see here, Shump has since wiped out the Adidas logo in compliance. Of course if he really wants to show that he’s down with Adidas, the logical next step would be a Gucci Mane-style face tat. We’ll stay tuned to see if that happens, but in the meantime, let us know what you think of Iman Shumpert’s banned hair in the comments below.

lmfao as much as i rock wit Shump being a Die Hard Knicks Fan This is good for his silly sef. Im tired of the 90's looks on this guy... Please stop shump! you know have a blank triangle on the back of your head. Like wtf
Dats fukd up he shuld b able 2 do wht he wnts its his head hes in tha fn commercial he represents addidas clearly
watching the Knicks vs Thunders game and i noticed there was something weird in the back of his head. I questioned "did Shumpert barber fucked up his fade?" lol.
Uniform policy? Yet the logo is shaved into his hair!....
These Professional sports leagues need to jump off their high horse... They're making plenty of dough yet when a player wants to express himself freely its against their "uniform policy"...
man, players should be allowed to express themselves in anyway. shit... THEY LET DENNIS RODMAN RUN AROUND LIKE A CLOWN
@dsuaveallday that's what I found odd. But you cannot wear any headbeand with any logo other than the nba logo. Just about money.
@ac2slater told you
@Da_Real_Big_Infinite right, but that was because nike has an "exclusivity" contract. Only nike and JB logos on shoes or gloves are allowed. Adidas players can wear adidas logo bearing sleeves etc. In the NBA.
@Larry40 hahahahahah SERIOUSLY
