Throughout the coronavirus pandemic, some have gotten adventurous with hairstyles and personal grooming.

On Tuesday night, Ben Simmons teased fans with a new look that a certain six-foot guard from Georgetown made popular around these parts.

Allen Iverson called.

When Simmons posted this on his Instagram, it was fair to wonder if this was a classic troll job. We’re talking about a dude that pranked his mom by serving her scrambled eggs loaded with fish sauce.

But lo and behold …

It’s a good look for the Fresh Prince. 

And the last time a No. 1 overall pick for the Sixers went with this look, it worked out pretty damn well.
