Manu Ginobili Combover Watch

Posted by Mike on March 9, 2008

I haven’t watched much of the NBA this year. My knowledge only goes as far as this: The Celtics are back, there are only two good teams in the east, the top 9 teams in the west are within about 6 games of each other, the Bobcats are still “too young” to be any good, and the Shaq trade to Phoenix was terrible. And really, that’s all I would really need to know.

However, watching a bit of a Spurs-Nuggets game made something abundantly clear to me: Manu Ginobili is going to get a combover before he retires.


The writing is on the wall. It has now become painfully obvious that Ginobili has male-pattern baldness. During the Nuggets game, one could see it from space. Here’s a sample of what he’s up against, and trust me, this picture is kind:

Right now we’re looking at a man in denial. Manu seems to have no intention of embracing the inevitable and shaving his head. He is far too proud of his locks, or rather the locks he once had, to do that.

But there will come a day when that spot on his head becomes far too big to ignore. On that day he must choose between accepting his fate…and making one last desperate move. I have almost no doubt that he will choose the latter.

Now that we’ve established that the combover is going to happen, all that’s left do do is speculate. What’s the over/under on when we will see it? What will it look like? How long will he try to keep it up? The possibilities could be endless.

hype it up!

    LOL…Manu is probably my favorite player in the league. That is why I want to send him a bottle of spray on hair. Or a nice set of clippers. Anything to prevent the horrible comb-over.

    Manu Ginobili must shave his head because he is getting bald.

    I think that he will look better bald but not balding.
