LeBron James is still playing like he’s 25 years old (he averaged 30.3 points per game last season), but he is currently 37. It’s not surprising that his hair has lost its youth.

On Tuesday morning the four-time NBA Champion posted an Instagram photo that showed him with a new haircut.

NBA Twitter has exploded over the news, and the photo is going viral.

Bleacher Report’s post has 12,000 likes in less than one hour.

Evan Turner, who was the second overall pick in the 2010 NBA Draft, sent out a tweet questioning if the photo was real.

Turner: “Ain’t no way LeBron went bald Is this true?”

Either way, James is still one of the best ten players in the NBA even at his age.

In addition to the 30.3 points, he also grabbed 8.2 rebounds and dished out 6.2 assists per contest last season.

While the Lakers had a down year (missed the playoffs and went just 33-49), he was one of their few bright spots.

Over the offseason, he agreed to an extension with Los Angeles, and is now under contract with the team until at least the summer of 2024.

Therefore, he will be on the Lakers until at least 39 years of age.

There is a player option for the 2024-25 season, which is when he would turn 40.

He has played for the Lakers twice and the Heat twice. With the Lakers’ season beginning against the Golden State Warriors in less that a month, it will be interesting for James to see his hair on opening night.
