Sam Dekker is one of the Big Ten’s top players. Did you know he also really likes to rap? On Sunday night’s premiere of “The Journey: Big Ten Basketball 2014,” Nigel Hayes told us this about his star teammate: “I really believe he’d rather be Eminem than LeBron James, if he could pick.” Watch one of our show’s segments on Dekker in this post.
“Last year, I had the worst hair, maybe, in the Big Ten,” Dekker said. “It was shaggy, moppy, it was everywhere, and it just looked awful when I played.”
And now, Dekker’s a hair diva.
“He’ll spend 10, 15 minutes before a game making sure, you know, he’s got the right 16 hairs poking up in the right spot,” Hayes said.
