Fathi Oukerimi, 33, is an Algerian basketball player who you've probably never heard of. 

He scored six points in Algeria's 67-63 victory against Egypt during the FIBA Africa Championship, and while his numbers weren't that impressive, there's no denying he has the best beard in basketball. 

As Kinja user David DeMaria points out, Oukerimi's glorious beard sets the tone, but his Kareem-esque Rec Specs really tie the whole look together.
