The bizarre ending to Thursday’s Atlantic 10 tournament game between Charlotte and Richmond wasn’t the only thing TV viewers couldn’t take their eyes off of.
The seemingly interminable final 4.7 seconds — in which the 49ers sank eight free throws (due to three technical fouls on Richmond) to turn a 63–60 deficit into a 68–63 win — offered several close-ups of Charlotte coach Alan Major’s dramatically receding hairline.
It’s an … interesting hairstyle choice, to say the least. One that’s well-known enough that it has its own Twitter handle, @AMajorsHairline, which has this hilarious partial descriptor: “Father of LeBron James … Check the resemblance.”
Hilarious because it’s not far from the truth.
