Somehow, this story managed to slip past us the other day. While we were caught up in all the hysteria surrounding Andrew Bynum's trip to a mall in Philadelphia late last week, the Sixers big man made an appearance at the Hawks/Sixers game on Friday night rocking—you ready for this?—cornrows French braids!

"French braids, man," he replied when a reporter asked him about his new 'do and referred to them as cornrows. "I got tired of the 'fro."

We can only imagine what he'll come up with next after he gets tired of the French braids. Click through the thumbs gallery to see some of the many hair styles that Bynum has already turned to during the 2012-13 NBA season.
