White guy on Arkansas takes casual use of headband to unreasonable level

It’s pretty safe to say that somewhere in California Rob Johnson is lounging at his house on the beach, slowly nodding and quietly whispering to his television, "thank you, no really, thank you."

    Did anyone see him making sure his headband stayed as he came down battling for a rebound?

    This guy definitely has his priorities straight.

    Nike is paying him big bucks to wear that Adidas headband, I hear.

    He reminds me of everything Chris Kaman curses that he’s not.

    He gets his hair cut once a year and donates it to the people that make wigs for cancer patients.

    Basketball, it’s so easy even a caveman can do it.

    You think Pocket Full of Kryptonite is one of his go-to albums before games?

    no one realized yet that it’s clearly a Korver wig with the headband sticked on it

    I have a couple of pictures of the guy in a shower and he’s actually 100% bald

    Rather than just coming out and calling him a “white guy”–can’t we be more euphemistic and call him: “smart shot chooser,” “hard-working shooter,” “economically playing,” “the one that does the little things that don’t show up on the scoreboard,” and “making up in play tactics what he lacks in natural talent”???

    You forgot scrappy, and I’m guessing Chris Wheeler would call him a little waterbug.

    He’s an attractive man.

    @Zen Wizard:

    I don’t even think he’s white, I think he’s just hairy.

    Regardless, he’s definitely a “heady” player

    You’d figure that one of the blacks would take him aside and offer some fashion advice.

    It’s guys like this that ease the burden of baldness for the rest of us.

    He looks very stupid…!
    But he’s terribly nice…!

    Behold his perfect skin…!
    As white as delicate…!

    There is no doubt…!
    Who is fair, is fair…!

    I don’t get it. He’s just wearing a headband, so what? It’s as if you guys are a bunch of balding, fat neckbeards who have to poke fun at people who actually look decent.

    It looks like he’s totally distracted by the on-screen graphics.
