In another edition of the eternal battle of Braids vs. Flattop, the long locks of Kenneth Faried defeated Norris Cole’s high-top fade with a resounding block. However, in a later battle of Headband vs. Flattop, Ty Lawson went 0-for-7 from the floor, while Cole hit a big late-game three to clinch it. So:
Braids > Flattop > Headband
Also, LeBron recommends that Lawson push that headband up higher to conceal his hairline better.
