    Take a good look at the face of Aaron Brooks and think really hard. Try to imagine who in showbiz has very similar facial features and could be linked as a long lost twin.

    Okay saying their twins is a little far-fetched, but I thought it would be fun to take a trip down memory lane by looking at both current and past NBA players and see which players look similar to other recognizable faces.

    If you couldn't figure out who Aaron Brooks looks like, I'll give you a hint. Think of a very funny stand up comedian who also has starred in many funny movies.

    I know I'm going to miss some players so I would like you guys to comment on who I missed.

Shannon Brown and Chris Brown

    It's only fitting that Shannon and Chris share the same last name. The resemblance of Shannon and Chris may not be as prominent as others in this article, but they look enough alike to be added in this slide show.

    I know I'm not the only one who thought at one point that Chris and Shannon were somehow related.

Ronny Turiaf and Predator

    The comparison of Ronnie Turiaf and Predator from the film series Predator,  is the first non-human look-alike on the list.

    The more you stare at Ronnie Turiaf's mammoth of a head, long hair and large body build, the correlation between the two gets stronger.

    If the Predator and Turiaf got into a fight it would be interesting to see who wins.

Josh Smith and Jayceon Taylor (the Game)

    Smith is one "LA" tattoo under his right eye away from being a mirror image of The Game. From the neck up, both Smith and The Game look almost identical.

    Having someone write that you look almost exactly like a talented and successful rapper like the Game is not a bad comparison. It could be a lot worse. Imagine you were given the title of a carbon copy of the Predator, yikes!

Kirk Hinrich and Jason Biggs

    If you place a photo of Kirk Hinrich beside one of Jason Biggs and look back and forth you will see a huge resemblance. 

    Hinrich and Biggs facial features are not exactly alike and don't deserve the title as identical twins. But whose to say they couldn't be long lost fraternal twins.

Rajon Rondo and Earthworm Jim

    BOSTON, MA - MARCH 04:  Rajon Rondo #9 of the Boston Celtics calls out to his teammates in the first half against the Golden State Warriors on March 4, 2011 at the TD Garden in Boston, Massachusetts.  NOTE TO USER: User expressly acknowledges and agrees t

    Rajon Rondo is one of my favorite players right now in the NBA so it hurts me to say anything that is negatively geared towards him. Now comparing Rondo to a character from a series of side-scrolling videos games of the 90's isn't the nicest thing to say.

    Rondo and Jim may also share a distant cousin in Roger the alien from American Dad.

Kenyon Martin and Method Man

    DENVER, CO - FEBRUARY 28:  Kenyon Martin #4 of the Denver Nuggets looks on during a break in the action against the Atlanta Hawks during NBA action at the Pepsi Center on February 28, 2011 in Denver, Colorado. The Nuggets deafeated the Hawks 100-90. NOTE

    From one of the most overrated players in the NBA (Martin) to one of the most underrated rappers (Method Man) the looks are unparalleled. 

    I suggest looking up photos of both Martin and Method Man because everything about their appearance from the shape of their head to their matching cheek bone structures are spot on.

Sam Cassell and ET

    Sam Cassell is without a doubt the funniest looking player to ever step foot into the NBA. His talented play has always been overshadowed by how similar he looks to ET.

    If the film ET was ever turned into a live play I wonder who gets called to play the aliens part? Sam Cassell "phone home."

Corey Maggette and Xzibit

    PHOENIX - JANUARY 23:  Corey Maggette #50 of the Golden State Warriors hanldes the ball during the NBA game against the Phoenix Suns at US Airways Center on January 23, 2010 in Phoenix, Arizona. The Suns defeated the Warriors 112-103.  NOTE TO USER: User

    Corey Maggette and Nathaniel Joiner (Xzibit) are exact replicas of one another. The only difference between the two is Maggette's bald head.

    Pretty much every facial feature of Maggette's matches Xzibit's. If Xzibit shaved his head bald and I was asked to say who is who, there is no way I could tell the difference.

Rodney Stuckey and Curtis Jackson (50 Cent)

    CHICAGO - DECEMBER 02: Rodney Stucky #3 of the Detroit Pistonsbrings the ball upcourt against the Chicago Bulls at the United Center on December 2, 2009 in Chicago, Illinois. The Bulls defeated the Pistons 92-85. NOTE TO USER: User expressly acknowledges

    If Rodney Stuckey managed to put on around 50 pounds of muscle or if Curtis Jackson somehow lost that much muscle tone, then they would be twins.

    Since both of these scenarios are highly unlikely to occur, then based on facial features alone they are identical.

Kyle Korver and Asthon Kutcher

    CHICAGO, IL - JANUARY 15:  Kyle Korver #26 of the Chicago Bulls collects a rebound and sets up for the game winning three point field goal with 25 seconds remaining in the game against Mario Chamlers #15 of the Miami Heat at the United Center on January 1

    The comparison between Kyle Korver and Ashton Kutcher is one of the more widely talked about today and rightfully so. It's not hard to notice many similarities between the two.

    From their goofy facial expressions and matching haircut, there's no doubt in my mind that they could have been separated from each other at birth.

Stan Van Gundy and Ron Jeremy

    ORLANDO, FL - DECEMBER 18:  Head coach of the Orlando Magic Stan Van Gundy points during the game against the Philadelphia 76ers at Amway Arena on December 18, 2010 in Orlando, Florida.  NOTE TO USER: User expressly acknowledges and agrees that, by downlo

    This is another one of the more spot on look-alike comparisons. I cannot believe that Stan Van Gundy and Ron Jeremy aren't in any which way related. 

    Everything down to their Mario Brothers style mustache is a match. It's kind of funny taking a look at Stan's brother Jeff because in no way shape or form do they look like family.

    But if Ron Jeremy subbed in as coach for a day for the Magic, no one would know the difference.

Marco Belinelli and Sylvester Stallone

    NEW ORLEANS, LA - JANUARY 22:  Marco Belinelli #8 of the New Orleans Hornets shoots the ball during the game against the San Antonio Spurs at the New Orleans Arena on January 22, 2011 in New Orleans, Louisiana.  The Hornets defeated the Spurs 96-72.  NOTE

    Comparing both Marco Belinelli and Sylvester Stallone at first glance may seem a little strange. But the harder you look at both photos the more the resemblance starts to stick out.

    I advise anyone who wants to see a picture of Stallone and compare it to Belinelli to look back at one of his photos around the time of the first Rocky film. It wouldn't do the comparison justice if you viewed a recent photo of Stallone because of the large age gap between him and Belinelli.

Chris Bosh and the Raptor's Mascot

    When Chris Bosh signed with the Miami Heat this past off season, the Toronto Raptors lost a large part of their franchise as a whole. They lost both their franchise player and their team mascot in one fell swoop.

    The day the Raptors selected Chris Bosh with the number four pick in the draft it was a match made in heaven.

Evan Turner and Jake Sully's Avatar

    CHICAGO, IL - DECEMBER 21: Evan Turner #12 of the Philadelphia 76ers sits on the bench during a game against the Chicago Bulls at the United Center on December 21, 2010 in Chicago, Illinois. The Bulls defeated the 76ers 121-76. NOTE TO USER: User expressl

    This is one of the more out there comparisons between Evan Turner and Jake Sully's Avatar. Just saying that someone looks like a character from the film Avatar is funny enough, but when that person actually resembles an Avatar, it's priceless.

    Turner's face in this photo is identical to Sully's Avatar. All Turner is really missing is giant pointy ears and blue skin to be Sully's twin.

Robert Horry and Will Smith

    LOS ANGELES, CA - JUNE 06:  Former Los Angeles Laker' Robert Horry attends Game Two of the 2010 NBA Finals between the Boston Celtics and the Los Angeles Lakers at Staples Center on June 6, 2010 in Los Angeles, California. NOTE TO USER: User expressly ack

    The similarities between Robert Horry and Will Smith are quite high. They both have the same style haircut, their ears are also equally large and they smile the exact same way.

    If Robert Horry ever needed to cheat on an exam in the future, he should just ask Smith to take the test for him.

Aaron Brooks and Chris Rock

    BOSTON, MA - MARCH 02:  Aaron Brooks #0 of the Phoenix Suns looks on before a free throw against the Boston Celtics on March 2, 2011 at the TD Garden in Boston, Massachusetts.  The Celtics defeated the Suns 115-103. NOTE TO USER: User expressly acknowledg

    If you didn't guess who Aaron Brooks resembled on the first slide, the answer is Chris Rock. What ever I say wouldn't do the comparison any justice.

    If I were to rate the resemblance between Brooks and Rock on a scale of one to ten I would have to give Brooks an eight. Looking at photos of Brooks today almost duplicate the look of Rock from ten years ago.
