Yeah, I read that this morning. It made me think about that Hornets hat he was wearing in the photo. It was probably a CHARLOTTE Hornets hat, not a NOH hat. Those throwback Charlotte hats and jerseys
are some of the top sellers amongst old school merchandise. Suck on that conspiracy theorists.
Edit - if you follow the link at RealGM to the original news from the Chicago new outlet, he is asked about the hat. He says it's a Charlotte hat.
