Over the years I've noticed that some NBA players do a better job of maintaining a clean appearance than others. Some players might look scruffy, but a select few take the neglected look to a whole new level. Here are 5 guys I think would qualify for the NBA All-Caveman team. I am not necessarily saying these guys ugly. The caveman look is self imposed. They all look much better when they are cleaned up.
Pau Gasol- I can't watch a Lakers game anymore without wishing I could make Gasol get a shave and haircut.
Robin Lopez- I saw him freaking out on the sidelines earlier this season and he looked like a caveman who had seen fire for the first time.
Joakim Noah- I didn't like his long hair when he was in college and it's only gotten worse as he's combined it with splotchy facial hair.
Dirk Nowitzki- He's experimented with the entire spectrum over the years and has gone from a buzz haircut to this hippy look.
Andrew Bogut- I like him as a player, but he has recently adopted the caveman look.
I'll be the first to admit that these guys are great basketball players and I hate to judge them by their appearance, but sometimes I can't tell if I'm watching Quest for Fire or an NBA game.
