Dopplegangers Part I – Anthony Davis, Mike Woodson, Joakim Noah, Peyton Manning, Randy Foye, Hedo Turkoglu

This is a new series is based on athletes who resemble a public figure in some way, shape or form.  In honor of the recent number one pick of the 2012 NBA draft, I’ll begin with Anthony Davis.








Clearly, the unibrow draws a direct comparison to Bert, of Sesame Street fame.  Bert was not known for his ability to contest shots under the basket, he was more or less just a boring companion, who contested his best pal Ernie’s outlandish claims.









Before Mike Woodson was well known for his finely trimmed beard, and his bald head, he sported a different look.  A Cleveland Brown look.  Cleveland Brown served as an assistant to Peter Griffin, before coming into his own as a leading man.  Mike Woodson similarly emerged as head coach of the Hawks, and presently, the Knicks.









Joakim Noah, and Sloth from the cult classic, The Goonies. Dead Ringer.  It’s what’s on the inside that counts, though.  Both of these guys have a uncanny ability to scare the crap out of kids.








Next, we have Peyton Manning, and Beaker from the Muppets, who both seem to have shoulders leading straight into their head.  Beaker doesn’t usually have too much to say, unlike Manning, who’s audibles can usually be heard from the upper deck.










Randy Foye looks a bit like Chuck D of Public Enemy, but best serves as the Professor Griff to Blake Griffin and Chris Paul’s Chuck D and Flavor Flav tandem.











Adrien Brody looks a lot like Hedo Turkoglu, or anyone with a huge nose really.  These two, along with Manu Ginobli all look a lot like what would be Gonzo and Pinnocio’s love child.  When all is said and done, Adrien Brody and Hedo Turkoglu will have a couple of bright spots in their career, but for the most part, they will be remembered as mediocre contributors.
