Nick Young Has Officially Jumped the Shark

There's no use hemming and hawing around the subject: Nick Young has a mullet.

Whether or not he took some advice from his similarly-mulleted teammate Spencer Hawes (who somehow looks like a whiter version of Kenny Powers) and decided to go with the "business in the front, party in the back" look is beyond me, but it seems obvious that Young wanted to find something to get cameras pointed his way.

This haircut doesn't scream, "Look how weird I am," like Drew Gooden's ducktail, or even his octopus beard. Instead it's just saying, "Hey, look over here, I've got weird hair."

What it does do is put the Philadelphia 76ers above the rest of the NBA in terms of necessitating daily hair updates among Young, Hawes and Andrew Bynum.

Hawes and Young discussed the young shooter's new 'do with 700level.com earlier this week:

"It's the Shaggy P," he [Young] said.

Fellow strange-hair-wearer Spencer Hawes weighed in with a few thoughts of his own.

"It's the black mullet, the bullet," Hawes joked.

With three of the most prominent (but easily criticized) members of their team rocking ridiculous hairdos, it seems only pertinent that the rest of the team find themselves a new look as well.

Evan Turner? He obviously needs a spiked mohawk. Jrue Holiday should go with a full-on jheri curl, Lavoy Allen just needs to grow out the mutton chops, Thaddeus Young needs a handlebar mustache and Kwame Brown definitely needs a B-52's style beehive.

As for Doug Collins, cornrows are the only answer.
