Even though the Lakers beat the Jazz to take a 1-0 series lead in the Western Conference semi-finals, all anybody can talk about are the ridiculous pictures Kobe Bryant took for the LA Times Magazine.
It's embarrassing, ill-timed, and just plain weird.
Sadly, Kobe isn't alone in his choice of taking embarrassing pictures. He's just one in a long line of athletes who should have been a little more camera shy.
Here are The 20 Most Embarrasing Athlete Photos of All Time.
We begin with an easy one.
Not too sure what he was looking and smiling at but one thing is definitely true, this was taken in the '80s.
In an effort to gain more votes for the NBA Most Valuable Player award, King James got dressed up as Bobby Brown?
This was taken about three years ago at the 2007 ESPYs.
He has only dressed like this once more since that performance.
Corn rows? Really?
I am not too sure why he did it but one thing is for sure, the women were still diggin' him!
If he was not such a jackass, he probably wouldn't have to carry around a sign like this.
Quick question, do you ever see Drew Brees, Peyton Manning, Ray Lewis, LaDainian Tomlinson or any other big name NFL star act like Ochocinco does?
NO, because they are too busy winning.
I had to put a side by side photo so every one could see the difference.
According to a former cubs rep, "he's going through some sort of skin rejuvenation process."
Regardless, he should have known people would notice.
Why do so many NFL players want to pose like this?
Oh, it's because they will kick your ass if you make fun of it.
However, I will never run into Jason Taylor, so I can safely say, what was he thinking??
At least there was no American players in this picture.
Wait, what? There is an American in this picture? Great!
Side note: To all World Cup soccer players, please do not ever do this again! Thanks!
He probably should have worked out a little more at the University of Nick Saban, I mean Alabama!
Because of him, the NFL had to add man boobs as a measurement for the combine.
Is that the Minnesota Vikings star defensive player Jared Allen holding an AK-47, posing in a white robe, wearing a cowboy hat, standing in front of a pink Cadillac with a huge set of longhorns on the front?
Yes it is!
Sorry Michael Phelps, but I had to include you in my list.
SNL Weekend Update lead Seth Meyers said it best, "If you're at a party and you see Michael Phelps smoking a bong and your first thought isn't, "Wow I get to party with Michael Phelps," and instead you take a picture and sell it to a tabloid then you should take a long look in the mirror because you're a d**k, I mean really?!?"
How did he recover from a torn ACL?
By saving baby goats in the Midwest. That's how!
He is married to Gisele, has a baby with Bridget Moynahan, and has won three Super Bowls. This guy can herd goats if he wants to.
There's an oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico, terrorists planting car bombs in Times Square, soldiers fighting a war against bad people and floods in Tennessee.
Then there's this picture...
In the words of Keyshawn Johnson, "C'mon man!"
If you watched NFL Fox Sunday last season then you would have already enjoyed all the razzing Jimmy Johnson received from this hot shot.
This is one of the worst photos in my slideshow. The reason is because he ended up being let go from the school following the release of these photos.
Eustachy, former head coach of the Iowa State men's basketball team, was found partying it up at a University of Missouri college party.
Couple things to remember, he is 47 years old, married and is an admitted alcoholic.
I have decided to replace my words with more pictures of this drunken frat boy.
And one more!
I had to narrow my choices from 145 to 1.
There are many pictures of Rodman looking a bit different, but this one takes the cake. Not only is he in drag, but he has the cigar, makeup kit and purse to add to the ensemble.
What does he think when he dresses like that?
What part of this shot did he think would not be funny or embarrassing?
How much alcohol did he have to consume to be convinced to pose like this?
Do you think he actually does this when the cameras aren't around?
Season 2 of Jersey Shore would not be complete without Steelers kicker, Jeff Reed.
I wonder what his Jersey Shore nickname would be?
I have one thing to say about this one.
Being drafted in the second round after being projected to be a top 10 pick is not the worst thing to happen to Jimmy Clausen.
Some pictures are just plain awesome.
Ladies and Gentleman, I give you Big Ben.
And that my friends, is a wrap.
