the headband to move back down, as James has reportedly had hairplugs installed
Terez Owens reported the news of James' new look and was told that, "he was sick and tired
of hearing all the jokes revolving around his rapidly receding
hairline…and he knew no matter how many championships he won, people
would always point to that right away."
Wes Welker had a similar procedure performed this offseason; the Patriots wide receiver has been wearing a do-rag under his helmet and on the sideline this season.
James may have copied Michael Jordan's popular No. 23 earlier in his career, but apparently he's unwilling to don Jordan's signature bald hairstyle.
The Heat star's new hairstyle was first noticed when Nike released their LeBron James Diamond Collection apparel catalog with a full head of hair on James. Now that LeBron is an NBA champion, he's also paying the price to look like a champion.
Take a look at James' new hairstyle below.

"It is an honor to congratulate Miguel Cabrera on earning the Triple
Crown, a remarkable achievement that places him amongst an elite few in
all of Baseball history. Miguel has long been one of the most
accomplished hitters in the game, and this recognition is one that he
will be able to cherish for the rest of his career in baseball and
beyond. As the Tigers prepare for the Postseason, we have a global
stage to witness Miguel’s talent, which will go down as one of the
hallmarks of Major League Baseball’s extraordinary 2012 regular season."
–Bud Selig on Miguel Cabrera winning the MLB's first triple crown since 1967.
Wes, please say no.
@weswelker Yo Wes…Almost convinced to run for President! Need some support! What you think?
