Here's a sponsored post. This one's from Adidas. We've been told to write something celebrating our teams' best moments in grooming history, and...well...I think we're currently experiencing one of those moments. Josh Harrellson's patchy handlebar mustache is a sight to behold. Especially a few days ago when it sat beneath a black eye, it turned Harrellson's face from that of a large, gentle-looking young man into that of a sinister, dynamite-wielding villain. I really hope he keeps the Jortstache for the playoffs, if only to creep out fans on the road and make opposing players afraid making contact with him. (Then again, folks in Miami might be really into that mustache. One never knows.)

Meanwhile, this clearly isn't the most creative response to this topic, and some of y'all have a much broader historical scope. What other moments in Knicks grooming history rival the Jortstache? I'm mostly thinking about individual stuff here. Otherwise, the shaved heads for the playoffs in the late '90s would clearly win.

So, share your hair memories. Otherwise, back to our regularly scheduled programming.
