NBA Look Alikes Pt 1.

Somewhat inspired by Lives’ brilliant posts on the Artists of Coaching I and II, I’ve put together a collection of players that have comparable looks and mannerisms as some celebrities.

First up is our boy Manu Ginobili. His look alike is none other than Balki from the sitcom Perfect Strangers. Like Balki, Manu was a stranger in a foreign country just trying to learn the ways of America. Balki’s cousin tried to take him under his wing but often Balki proved to more capable of solving the crisis that the pair found themselves in. Ginobili is a prime example of the globalization of the American game of basketball.

Next up are the brothers separated at birth, Kyle Korver and Ashton Kutcher. I know I’m not the first person to point out the uncanny resemblance between these two but come on, who’s going to deny that if Kutcher were a basketball player that he’d be rocking the knee high socks and shaggy haircut? No one.

This concludes the first installment of The NBA Look Alikes. Next up is Nate Robinson, Rajon Rando, and more.
