1. Kelly Olynyk.

Although his golden locks look effortlessly windblown, Canadian-born Olynyk didn’t have a total breeze of a time with the Zags, spending his red shirt season training hard to overcome his massive height and gain grace and coordination. The work paid off and now he plays for the Boston Celtics. Sports Illustrated says his man bun has special basketball enhancing powers.

2. Przemek Karnowski.

Another big guy with even bigger hair goals for his fans. Beards are all the rage today and Przemek puts stubble to shame. This great Spokesman-Review article cites him as pridefully calling it, “A full Polish beard.”

4.Steven Gray.

There is nothing cooler than number 41, Steven Gray and his chin-length dreaded-do. This guy is the definition of style. And in 2011, he was the team's lead scorer.

5.Rem Bakamus.

Some freshmen at GU only knew Bakamus as "man bun," but he is well respected for so much more. He is "living the dream, even from the far end of the bench."

7.Ronny Turiaf

He could not be beat on the Zag court, in school spirit, or in hair volume. See this NBA Warrior story.

8.Dan Dickau

He may possibly be the reigning king of this list. He sported curly locks during his time as a Zag and took it to the next level after his basketball career when he opened his own chain of barbershops. (See story here.)
