2011 M Awards: Best Hair

The playoff beard is an anomaly. Swimmers and bicyclists shave their entire bodies so that they can get just a bit faster and more aerodynamic than the competition. So why do the Grizzlies care so little about speed? It seems to me that if they shaved the playoff beards they would have made the playoffs just a little faster. It’s just common sense.

The Grizzlies Playoff BeardsFirst Place: 48.80%
Tarik BlackSecond Place: 17.87%
RC Johnson, Third Place: 12.03%
Best Write-in Vote: Josh Pastner
