A Boston Celtics star's new look is barely recognizable ahead of the NBA restart.

The entire NBA operations went on hiatus a few months ago due to the coronavirus pandemic. Now, for the first time since March, hoops fans around the world can finally witness their favorite teams play again. However, they won’t get the opportunity to watch the games live this time.

Ahead of the NBA restart, Celtics star Jayson Tatum gave his fans a preview of what appeared to be his new in-game look. Most men grew beards while in quarantine, and Tatum was one of them. He just decided to keep his long and got a new haircut that went viral as well.

The former Duke University player seemed barely recognizable as he used to have a clean cut prior to the global lockdown but is now showing off his curls. Though Tatum will look totally different when the Celtics hit the court once again, fans are hoping that the NBA All-Star will retain his lethal scoring abilities.
