*Former NBA star Baron Davis showed up on ESPN’s “First Take” sporting an S Curl, and all hell broke loose on Twitter.
The Los Angeles native offered no explanation for his new/old look, but promoted it with a tweet of his own after the visit, writing, “The Curl just went national … Yall better recognize #morningcurl.”

Host Cari Champion acknowledged the curl of her fellow UCLA Bruin, saying, “We like it.”
“It’s world famous now,” Davis boasted.
As they went to break, Stephen A. Smith said to Davis, “You’re gonna bring back the jheri curl in 2015?” then pursed his lips and shook his head.
Twitter had pretty much the same reaction…
