Amir Johnson shaves Raptors logo into head
by Chris Chase, USA TODAY Sports
When getting a colored Toronto Raptors logo shaved into the back of your head is only the third-best viral moment of your month, you know it’s been a productive December.
Take a bow, Amir Johnson.
The Raptors forward showed off his new haircut on Instagram Thursday night and it’s a doozy. The cut features a Raptors claw, painted red, that’s shaved into the back of his head, just above a bar code tattoo and some shoulder tats that make him look like a basketball-playing Lisbeth Salander.
Earlier this month, Johnson was ejected from a game for throwing his mouthpiece at a referee. He later drew online attention for posting a picture of himself dangerously putting the star on top of a two-story Christmas tree.
Our favorite part of the photo is the use of a retro Instagram filter. It really takes you back to the days of yore, when all your favorite basketball players like Jerry West and Sam Jones had their team’s respective logos shaved above their tats.
