Otago Nuggets and Tall Blacks point guard Jarrod Kenny had his hair cut in the Octagon yesterday.
A small crowd gathered to watch the cut, alongside the shaving of Jordan Ngatai’s beard and Josh Aitcheson’s moustache.
That happened a week ago when the Nuggets beat the Manawatu Jets 79-77 in the final in Auckland, claiming their first championship.
The event was used to raise money for charity — a Dunedin basketball hardship fund being set up to support youth players who need financial help in the game.
As of yesterday afternoon, that had raised $3300, donations coming from as far away as the United States, Canada and Australia as well as from around New Zealand.
Kenny had enjoyed the event and said it was "awesome" to have so many donations coming in.
"But it’s good, it’s all good."
The mullet developed something of a cult following throughout the campaign.
It even gained its own fan club, whose members made a trip from Te Kuiti to watch a game in Auckland.
Kenny will now link back with the Cairns Taipans for the Australian NBL season.
