A new patch is out now for NBA 2K18 and let's be honest, one of the changes is more important than the others. The patch notes, posted on Facebook, show that Los Angeles Lakers star Lonzo Ball's hairstyle has now been updated to match with his new hairdo.
It's been a long time coming, as Ball cut his hair back in November. He told ESPN of the haircut, "Just time to restart," noting that he also got a dramatic haircut while playing at UCLA. Ball started this NBA season struggling somewhat but he insists that his new haircut is unrelated to those problems.
The rest of the patch notes for the update, which is out now on PlayStation 4 and Xbox One, follow below. They also include things like bux fixes and other optimizations across the game. It's coming to PC and Switch later.
