On Tuesday, LeBron James took to his Instagram Story to show off his new look for the 2022-23 NBA season. The four-time champion posted a photo of him with personal barber Nick “Slick” Castemanos, seated in the barber’s chair. In the pic, James appears to be completely bald-headed now. The post also included an old man emoji followed by multiple laughing faces with tears emojis.
Hair loss has been an issue among fans for years. Some people on social media, on the other hand, believe that the photograph is fraudulent because they doubt James would go bald completely. Castemanos told Yahoo Sports in 2015 about James’ hairline and how nothing is added to make it appear sharp.
“There is no dye. No additives. No preservatives,” Castemanos said to Yahoo Sports, “Everyone thinks he’s dying his hair using [temporary hair colorings] Bigen or Black Ice. It’s all his hair. They still don’t believe me. I get Bigen comments all the time.” Here is a sampling of what people had to say about James’ new hairstyle on social media.

One fan wrote: “So back to the bald Abraham Lincoln look. It’s not new, it’s just today’s attempt at staying in the news cycle.”
