When I first started following basketball in the late 1980s, Jack Sikma was instantly recognizable. Because of his hair. He was a big, slow white guy with a big, curly blond perm. To 12 year old me, that was more significant than his outstanding NBA career. I know better now. I know he was one of the most consistent and most underrated big men in the league during his time with the Sonics and Bucks. And I am thrilled that he is now a part of the Timberwolves coaching staff. I still love that blond perm, though!
