The 15 Ugliest Athletes In Sports

0 of 15

    When we talk about sports, we talk about physical and mental ability, strategy, and sportsmanship.

    We rarely discuss the physical appearance of our favorite athletes.

    And for some that is a very good thing.

    Luckily for these ugly ducklings, good looks are not a requirement to be successful in the sports world.

    But they're still not much to look at.

    Here are the 15 ugliest athletes in sports.

15. Chris Bosh

1 of 15

    Now this could be because I'm not a fan of Chris Bosh, but he reminds me of Jurassic Park.

    Which is exactly why he should have stayed with the Toronto Raptors.

14. A.J. Hawk

    Now, I grew up an Ohio State Buckeyes fan, but I just can't find it in my heart to call A.J. Hawk attractive. He may have cut his hair since this picture was taken, but come on dude!

    You need more work than that!

13. Adam Morrison

    I'm sure that Adam Morrison is a very nice kid, but come on!

    Get a haircut. Shave your trash stash.

    And take a shower.

12. Ben Roethlisberger

    As a Steelers fan Ben Roethlisberger has embarrassed me in more ways than one.

    I could list all of the reasons why Big Ben disappoints me, but this is a slideshow about appearance.

    So I'll just leave you with a picture of Ben's face.

11. Greg Oden

    Another Buckeye makes our list!

    This picture was taken in college, but Oden looks like he's about 40 years old.

10. Alexander Ovechkin

6 of 15

    I'll admit it. I have a thing for hockey players.

    They're big. They're tough. They're graceful.

    But Alexander Ovechkin has a face that only a mother could love.

9. Leon Spinks

7 of 15

    I get that boxers are all pretty scary, but Leon Spinks haunts my dreams.

8. Chris Kaman

8 of 15

    You know that mouth-breather from your high school English class that you hated being partnered with because you were afraid he would drool all over your homework?

    Well, now he plays for the Clippers.

7. Ronaldinho

9 of 15

    If a carp and a donkey mated...

    Well it appears they already have.

6. Delonte West

10 of 15

    Can someone please tell me what that is on Delonte's face?

    Anybody?

    Look out ladies! He likes cougars.

5. Marshawn Lynch

11 of 15

    Marshawn Lynch looks like something that just emerged from some swamp located next to a nuclear power plant.

    Or the cavemen from the GEICO commercials.

4. Ezequiel Astacio

12 of 15

    Okay. Seriously?

    Is he even human?

    I just want to introduce him to Jessica Simpson so she can hook him up with some Proactiv.

3. Sam Cassell

13 of 15

    Yes. This was the first picture that came up when I searched for an image of Sam Cassell.

    I guess I'm not the only one who thinks that Cassell is not of this world.

2. Tyrone Hill

14 of 15

    A while back I was watching this really interesting Discovery Channel documentary about excavating ancient Egyptian ruins. 

    But then they opened one of the mummy's crypts and I realized that I was watching a Heat game. 

1. Joakim Noah

15 of 15

    You know when you were little and your parents would play "peekaboo" with you? They would do anything to make you smile, right?

    It was the exact opposite in the Noah household.

    Joakim's parents would actually keep posters of Freddy Krueger on the walls just to keep the kid from smiling.

    "Yes, Joakim. There is a monster under your bed."
