Harrison Barnes is getting hairy in the name of basketball.
According to ESPN reporter Tim MacMahon, the 27-year-old NBA star has made a vow not to shave his beard or cut his hair until his team, the Sacramento Kings, hits a .500 record this season, meaning they win at least half of their games.
“Harrison Barnes isn’t cutting his hair or shaving until the Kings hit .500 or the season ends,” MacMahon tweeted on Wednesday. “He made the vow in mid-December and looks pretty rugged these days.”
As of Thursday, the Kings have a .389 record, with 21 wins and 33 losses. Their most recent loss was on Wednesday against the Dallas Mavericks.
According to Bleacher Report, the Kings haven’t had a season above .500 since the 2005-2006 season.
