Reading article after article, Kevin Huerter wrinkled his brow. It didn’t matter the website or publication. It didn’t matter the author or even the subject during his Hawks tenure. Huerter kept seeing the same pictures from his rookie year with Atlanta. So this season, his first as a member of the Sacramento Kings, the 24-year-old amended his on-court appearance. Something sentimental and purposeful for a new chapter in new colors. Now when you Google the man who’s pouring 3s inside Golden 1 Center, a thick headband floods the image results.
“It’s a timestamp. It’s like Carmelo [Anthony] with his cornrows or LeBron [James] with his headband,” Huerter told Yahoo Sports.
