Return of the Flat Top

I'm sure by now you have all seen the return of the Brandon Jennings' tight flat top fade. He sported it during the McDonald's All-American game, but probably got rid of it in Italy. For most of this Bucks career he had little puff braids, but starting with Tuesday's game against the Nets, Jennings is back to the beloved flat top. In honor of Jennings (below), I thought I'd give you a sampling of some of the best flat tops in recent memory.
Ryan Evans for the Badgers has more of a classic flat top.

And of course you can't talk about the high flat top fade without mentioning Kid n' Play

I couldn't find a picture, but I know Mike Anderson from Channel 12 News rocked the flat top for many years, and I think an afro before that.

I remember Jack Sikma having a flat top, but it appears to be some flat top/mullet amalgamation.

Chris Mullin flat top sporting, alcoholic, gambling addict - even his bobble head has the flat top

Kurt Russell in Stargate - military version

Guile from Street Fighter 2 - Look at that thing. A Family of 4 could have an entire meal on that thing. Flatness!

And, of course, Ivan Drago. Yes." I must break you (with my flat top)."

Mike Anderson did not have a flat top, he had a "box."

How about Howie Long. He's rocked the 'top for his entire career?

If you need some more images, look no further than my freshman year high school yearbook. 1993-94 was probably a death knell year for the flat top for famous people, but inner-city teens still loved it.

What about Howie Long?
