When the NBA made the decision to resume their season and head down to ESPN’s complex at Disney, working through the logistics was the major problem. From simply accommodating hundreds of NBA players to feeding them and scheduling games, the planning was NASA level.

With so many things to think through, one aspect that may have been overlooked for the three-month stay was barbers. Luckily, William Rondo, brother of Rajon Rondo, had a business equipped to handle the problem at hand.

The NBA constructed a barbershop from the ground up and recruited barbers from all over the United States. The funny part of recruiting barbers is that they treated it like a draft and those chosen even uploaded their speeches to Instagram.
