Gortat on the Mohawks: "Martell's sexual black chocolate and I'm sexual white chocolate so we have to look the same." pic.twitter.com/ewJDvoOnpz— Sarah Kogod (@SarahKogod) September 29, 2014
At media days all around the league, you get to see the offseason physical transformations players around the NBA have gone through. Most of this involves shedding a bunch of weight, like we've seen with LeBron James and Carmelo Anthony, or adding muscle to their frames, like we hear about with 90 percent of the players. Occasionally, you'll see a new hairstyle that shows the transformation.
At Washington Wizards' media day, we're getting the hairstyle change with Wizards' center Marcin Gortat. And his reasoning, as you read in the tweet above from Sarah Kogod of SB Nation, is really why it makes it so special. Gortat's mohawk is an attempt to look more like teammate Martell Webster. According to Gortat, Webster is "sexual black chocolate" and Gortat is "sexual white chocolate" so that's the reason they have to look the same.
It's going to be hard to top this quote for media day.
