PHOENIX — Lou Amundson’s ponytail might not be the only tail on the court this season. It seems Alando Tucker will be sporting a new look, though whether it will gain the notoriety of @LousPonyTail remains to be seen. That’s right, folks, look out for @AlandosRatTail, coming to a court near you.
“I lost a bet, and I had to cut my Mohawk off but I had to leave a tail,” Tucker said at Media Day on Monday.
He said the bet was with some friends over a couple of games of basketball.
“We take it really seriously. We always do bets and we never bet money,” Tucker said. “We just bet all sorts of crazy things.”
Right now it’s only a nubbin, but it seems this new coif might be sticking around for the long haul.
“I have to grow it, well, I don’t know if you ever saw Coming to America with Eddie Murphy, but his tail was like—well I have to grow it for a while,” Tucker said.
