Sixers’ Ben Simmons debuts new cornrow hairstyle
Philadelphia 76ers star Ben Simmons appears to have gotten really bored of late over life under quarantine. So much so, that the 6-foot-10 point guard has decided to try on a new and rather radical hairstyle.
Here’s a look at Simmons’ new do courtesy of NBC Sports Philadelphia:
As Simmons implied above, he is still unsure if he is going to be rocking this hairstyle for good. Perhaps this needs a bit more getting used to for the Sixers star. Then again, he might decide to revert back to his familiar do, and we might end up not seeing him in corn rows the next time he takes the floor.
Thankfully, the wonderful folks from Reddit were able to capture Simmons’ IG Story featuring a full look at his corn rows. Here is the link to the clip.
Simmons was actually having a great year for the Sixers prior to the hiatus, with the 23-year-old averaging 16.7 points (on a career-best 58.5 percent shooting), 7.8 rebounds, 8.2 assists, and 2.1 steals per contest. This led to his second consecutive All-Star appearance. His performances this season have been pivotal for Philly, as they sit at the sixth spot in the Eastern Conference with a 39-26 record. Had it not been for Simmons, the Sixers would probably ranked lower in the conference.
Last summer, the Australian national signed a massive $169.7 million deal with the team that has locked him up until the 2024-25 season. That’s certainly a huge sum, but there is no denying that for the Sixers, Simmons is worth the investment.
