    Disclaimer; this isn't a Duke thread. I have a lot of respect for Kennard. I was watching him thinking "this kid is practically automatic." Lot of respect for his offense. I have noticed last season and the other night that he messes with his hair an awful lot. Anybody else see this? Just wondering if you've noticed this too?

    Holy shit yes. It is insane. Every single time he is on camera and there is a stop, he brushes the front/sides of his hair forward. It's like a goddamn tic. I've never seen anything like it, and am glad that someone else noticed.

    THANK YOU! I've been saying this since the beginning of last year. Drives me absolutely insane for some reason. Glad I'm not crazy for noticing it.

    Still love his game, but Coach K should make him buzz his hair, haha.

    He might have some early male pattern baldness. That might be why he combs his hair forward.
    He's a great player. I see him in the NBA one day.

    He's been doing it since he was a kid, believe me I'd like to shave his head but it's just something he's always done.

    Oh yea. I've definitely noticed. Its crazy. But since I started noticing him do and paying more attention, I've noticed a few other players with similar hairstyles doing it also. Even noticed Grayson doing it some. But yea I'm with Dude on this. I think with Luke it has evolved into more of a tic. I think it would be funny if he did have to shave it though. I believe that at least for the first couple of weeks he would still do it. Even without a reason for it.

    You can tell he will be going bald in the front up top in his late 20's ala Nick Calathes

    I don't know about all the way bald but he is definitely going to be working some nice power alleys pretty soon.

    He just covering up what looks to be an early onset on male pattern baldness. He's already got a nice widows peak forming under all that pulled forward hair and will probably have a big old bald spot by his 26th birthday.

    I caught a little of the game yesterday, and he was obsessed with it. He's got a great shot! I know he visited UK. Wish he'd made the right choice jumpingsmile. But seriously, I love Kennard. He's a kid you want to root for no matter where he goes to school. Reminds me of some of the old-school shooters. Perfect form/timing. Unfortunately, I'm oddly fixated on his hair preening now.

    If you saw a photo of his sister, you would stop being fixated on his hair and start being fixated on her. She is a pretty lass.

    His mum isn't to shabby either. Duke has done well with above average looking team moms. Scheyer. Curry. Kennard.

    Haven't watched that many Duke games to notice. Does he mess with his hair as much as Crean hitches up his britches?

    He messes with his hair more than any other human does anything except maybe breath.

    She's the blonde. Not bad at all. Also, can anyone make out the wording on the black shirt?

    Mmm, I'd love nothing more than to get in with the sister, for obvious reasons.

    Get in with her and Luke and I will be shooting around in the driveway and bros in no time.

    Was from the champions classic. "It" was with a ku fan and they showed them before the game. I was devastated by both it, and the ku fan.

    I really wish you never brought this up. I don't know if I would have ever noticed it if not. Now it is pissing me off.
