In a stunning development spotted by Dan Steinberg of the D.C. Sports Bog after being reported by SLAM in this month's issue, it has been learned that Drew Gooden has shaved his beard, thus conceding a bet made with Wizard DeShawn Stevenson last year.
Gooden looked strong early in the contest, with a bushy fullness far preferable to Stevenson's scraggy mess. But beauty is not an end, and apparently Drew just couldn't handle all that fur. It's too bad; media day -- with all its glorious photo ops -- is only a few months away.
Still, this loss of follicle madness barely registers in comparison to last summer's bombshell about the premature death of The Neckstache. Drew, please stop breaking our hearts.
