From slicked back, mohawk, and braided, to downright carefree, loose and even shaved off, 29-year-old Jeremy Lin has gained more notoriety for his wild and wacky hairstyles than he has been for his NBA prowess. That’s not to say he’s not an amazing athlete! As one of only a few Asian Americans ever to play in the NBA, and the first American of Chinese/Taiwanese descent to play in the league, Lin just continues to make history.

10. Jeremy Lin New Haircut
And finally, this is the infamous dreadlocked hairstyle with shaved sides that caused all the recent controversy. In case you missed it, Lin had a run-in about his new dreadlocks with Nets’ vet, Kenyon Martin. To cut a long story short, Lin wrote about his new hairstyle showing that it wasn’t a decision he made lightly, and Martin accused him of cultural appropriation in a now deleted Instagram post. Why now deleted? Because Lin, ever the gent, killed Martin with kindness (“As minorities, the more that we appreciate each other’s cultures, the more we influence mainstream society. Thanks for everything you did for the Nets and hoops . . . had your poster up on my wall growin’ up…” Are we the only ones that got the chills?) Lin also pointed out that Martin has Chinese tattoos and Martin had to just sit there and take his humongous “L”. Even though Lin made it clear that he doesn’t want his fans to retaliate negatively towards Kenyon, the Lin Army inevitably went on the attack anyway (much to Lin’s condemnation) causing Kenyon to majorly back-track.
Jeremy Lin: Free spirit, a bit nuts, kindness ambassador. Our kinda guy. We can’t wait to see what hairstyle he comes up with next.
