Utah Jazz player Joe Ingles looked like he stepped off of a battlefield Monday night against the Memphis Grizzlies.

Ingles got pretty bloodied up after taking a shot to the face.

Most men probably would have used it as an excuse to find a little relaxation on the bench. That’s not what the Australian-born player is all about. He got his head taped up in laugh-out-loud fashion, and returned the court to get buckets. (RELATED: LeBron James Signs With The Lakers)

He seriously looked like the type of guy who smokes cigs near your local court, rarely plays but makes it rain whenever he decides to hoop it up. You just know he has stories to tell about the good old days.

I mean, let’s be serious. That head wrap is barely staying on. If it was a player with any speed the thing would end up on the floor. Put it on a silky smooth shooter, and you just have great content.

The Jazz pulled off the big win, and Ingles might have just made himself an NBA legend. This might be a bit embarrassing to admit, but I really don’t know anything about this dude.

After his headband game, I need to know absolutely everything. Welcome to the internet, Mr. Ingles! We’re happy to have you.
