For the first time in a long time, Manu Ginobili sported a head full of hair.

The former San Antonio Spurs star donned a wig, during a recent celebrity hoops game in China, according to ESPN. Ginobili led a team against his former teammate, Tony Parker.

The look was a throwback for Spurs fans, who surely remember Ginobili coming into the league with long hair.

The Argentinian basketball star stayed with the Spurs for his entire 16-season career before retiring in 2018.
