Give him points for creativity, but buy a canvas to express yourself, Dennis. Mismatched colors, blonde when he married himself (which is another level of weirdness altogether), geometric designs and cheetah print. The man was a walking Crayola box. Some days he showed up to the court and it looked like he had been the victim of a graffiti attack. Rodman had the worst hairstyles of any athlete ever. And he was a repeat offender. The only thing weirder than Rodman's memorable hair was his personality.

A follically challenged sportswriter is obviously in no position to critique hair choices, but here goes:

The list of candidates is deep, from Dennis Rodman's various colorful styling incarnations through Pete Rose's homage to Moe Howard. Brian Bosworth represented everything that was wrong with '80s style, while Randy Johnson's loyalty to the mullet was both admirable and disturbing.

We were never a fan of Pat Riley's slippery Gordon Gekko tribute or Tom Brady's flirtation with the Justin Bieber bangs. And perms were never a sensible choice, Hubie Brown.

Our No. 1 pick, though, is Andre Agassi. His bizarre spiked mullet suggested a well-groomed porcupine, yet he admitted in his book that he was wearing a wig. Ultimately, Agassi's story has a happy, bald ending — he ditched the hair piece, shaved his head and found follicle peace.
