NBA Look-a-Likes - Part I

Boyd looks like New England Patriots offensive lineman Logan Mankins. It's a fact. I find that fact humorous. I look very similar to the man Mankins protects - Tom Brady. With my lustrous hair and 5 o'clock shadow, I can't pry the ladies off of me, just like my boy Tom. Anyhow, Boyd and I had earlier entries about the ugliest and prettiest (not that there's anything wrong with that) guys in the NBA. Well, now it's time for the look-a-like list. I find that NBA players seem to look a lot like music artists - what with their corn rows, tattoos, and all important fashion statements such as earrings and necklaces. So here are some of my favorite NBA-music look-a-likes, with some special bonuses.




Nate Robinson and 50 Cent - these guys have a lot in common: they are both tatted up like crazy, both like to fight, both run their mouth way too much, and both think they're better at what they do than they really are. I don't want to make it sound like it's all bad though. Robinson started his college career as a defensive back at the University of Washington and became an NBA dunk champion. 50 has sold over 20 million records and brought us the joy of "In Da Club." The fact that he made popular the phrase "I'm in to having sex I ain't in to making love" is pretty amazing. These two have truly contributed to the good of sports and music.





Donyell Marshall and Ludacris - with these stylish corn rows and bad mustaches, how can either of these two go wrong? A couple of handsome devils, that's for sure. Both Luda and Donyell are underrated in their contribution to their respective professions. While neither will be in any top 5 dead or alive discussions, each brings decent skills to their craft.






Devin Brown and Usher Raymond IV - I'm assume that many of you don't know who Devin Brown is. Maybe you're a fan of the Sioux Falls Skyforce, his first professional team. Brown actually isn't a bad NBA player, but he's nowhere near as prolific as Usher Raymond IV is in music. Usher is a sex symbol for ladies everywhere. Look at those abs. Incredible. The seductive pose is pretty impressive too. I know that's why you visit this site. Um, anyway, Usher and Devin look alike...





Corey Maggette and Xzibit - these two looked more alike when Maggette was sporting the corn rows, but I swear this is the same guy. Can you even tell which is which in the pictures? X has been busy pimping people's rides, but he can still mean mug with the best of them.






Kirk Hinrich and Jason Biggs - I have never seen any of the American Pie movies and I have never seen Kirk Hinrich play well, so I have nothing to say about either of these two. I really couldn't care less about either of them.










Phil Jackson and Colonel Harland Sanders - did you know that Colonel Sanders once worked as a steamboat driver? Did you know that in high school Phil Jackson threw the discus? Go ahead and share these pieces of knowledge with someone today and see how impressive you look.

I have no reason to believe that Phil Jackson and Colonel Harland Sanders are not the same person. Pictures tell no lies. And if indeed they are one in the same, that means that Jackson is the head coach (if you will) of yet another successful franchise. Hall of Fame resume strengthened yet again Phil (or should I say Colonel?).

Oh that damn Colonel with his wee bitty eyes, "you're gonna eat my chicken."
Perhaps Phil can write the book Zen and the art of 11 herbs and spices
