The LeBron and Hinrich ones are classic.

Why did I pick Bill Parcells? Why? Why? Am I typing crooked or can I still not see straight? Patrick Ewing, click, there that fixed it.

About a lifetime ago I was working as an Electrician in the Leeds/Moody area of Alabama and did quite a bit of work for Sir Charles' mom. The photoshop image is remarkably close.

Pure genius.

I hope they do more. I want to see a Manny Ramirez family photo. The hair alone would trump everyone.

Why did I click on Bill Walton?

posted by jerseygirl at 02:28 PM on April 05

Why did I even click this site? Pretty ingenious though, I'll have to say.

Those are so great. Dwayne Wade is the best-looking woman imo.

I like the Mark Cuban one. Also, the Charlie V likenesses are pretty good.

Loved the Dikembe Mutumbo picture...even thinking about sending it to my family for christmas

What, no Dennis Rodman? The Larry Bird one looks like my ex-in-laws.......

the charlie villanueva one is funny, but why put the lego man/stockton haircut on him? on another note, bird was a legendary baller, but he also cracks my all-ugly starting five with cassell and pippen. ugh...

Tyrone Hill is unanimous All-Ugly HOF.

You know though, with a couple of properly placed paper bags there's a couple of hotties in the Manu Ginobili one that I.....hmmm...well...maybe not....

It takes a big man to admit that, bperk. I'm partial to Mrs. Heinrich, myself. Charles Barkley's youngest son looks remarkably like Alfred E. Neuman from Mad Magazine.

I may require surgery to correct the damage inflicted by the Bill Walton one.

The George Karl one looks like a secret Bush White House picnic.

It takes a big man to admit that, bperk. I'm partial to Mrs. Heinrich, myself. I'm leaning toward "Mrs" Gasol.

posted by commander cody at 04:25 PM on April 05

Oh crap, now we're picking the hottest "girl?" I hope the players see this thread.

posted by dusted at 04:28 PM on April 05

When did Karl Malone go all broke back?

posted by willthrill72 at 04:35 PM on April 05

Yeah you guys are all wishing you were with mrs. dwayne wade, or gasol...in all honestly, all three of you went and got drunk at a bar and "accidently" took home Mrs. Jeff Van Gundy- i 'm actually just joking

I like Wallace's. "Get back here and give your mother a kiss!" "She's gotta mustaaaache!!!!"

This brings back memories of the Styx hit from the early '80s: "Too Much Time On My Hands..."

posted by L.N. Smithee at 05:04 PM on April 05

Sorry, stofer71. You beat me to it.

posted by L.N. Smithee at 05:06 PM on April 05

This brings back memories of the Styx hit from the early '80s: "Too Much Time On My Hands..." More like Arrowsmith..."Dude looks like a Lady!"

posted by commander cody at 05:28 PM on April 05

No Chris Kaman or Gheorghe Muresan? Bah! I really want to see a Marquis Daniels one too. Great stuff. Thanks, dusty.

Well I'm not dumb but I can't understand, why she walk like a woman and talk like a man...

posted by njsk8r20 at 06:22 PM on April 05

More like Arrowsmith... um Aerosmith like im one to get picky about spelling

posted by Folkways at 06:29 PM on April 05

How can you guys mention those songs and not think about Lola?

posted by FozzFest at 07:15 PM on April 05

Hey Lola took me by the hand... Said dear boy i'm gonna make you a man... thats M... A child... N... MAN! ok too many "man" realaited songs, my brain is on overload

posted by Folkways at 07:53 PM on April 05

How can you guys mention those songs and not think about Lola? Uh, I threw a line of the song out there for ya.

posted by njsk8r20 at 08:08 PM on April 05

um Aerosmith My mom told me that stuff would ruin my memory, but didn't say it'd screw-up my speeling.

The Great fireWall blocks blogspot and I can only access it after some minor redirection that I rarely bother with. I'm glad I did. The Ostertag one reminded me that he gave his siter one of his kidneys. For that.

I caught it njsk8r20....nuthin like a cherry cola I'll tell ya.

Thx Folkways, just remember to check for an Adam's apple.

Just a brilliant waste of time, thanks dusted.

posted by vito90 at 01:39 AM on April 06

Styx, Aerosmith, Kinks.....all wrong. This is clearly a case of Aphex Twin and "Come to Daddy".
