NBA Player Says His Bobblehead's Skin Color Is Too 'Light'

Posted: Updated:

The Golden State Warriors hosted an Andre Iguodala bobblehead giveaway March 18. Iguodala didn't play in the home team's victory, but the night stuck with him -- and not in a good way apparently.

The player took to Twitter March 28 to complain that the bobblehead's skin tone is too pale.

Check out the contrast in side-by-side photos tweeted by KTVU reporter Sal Castaneda:

It wasn't clear why Iguodala waited so long to voice his displeasure or, as Sports Illustrated wrote, whether he was joking.

But either way he has a point.

In a previous Bay Area bumble of a bobblehead, Sergio Romo of the San Francisco Giants was honored with one that was obviously too dark. Romo also used social media to playfully point out the discrepancy.
