We all have an image of who we are in our minds. Whether or not that matches with the person everyone else sees is a different story. We do a similar thing with athletes.
Because we see them once or twice a week performing feats of superhuman athleticism we capture them forever in our minds as the way they were. Unfortunately, just like as we see ourselves, that may not be the way those athletes actually look anymore.
Here we’ve taken a look at some of those athletes who may look a little different now than when they were starring on the hardwoods. For some of these men, the change occurred right in front of our eyes while they were still playing. For others, it occurred after the bright lights went out and no one was watching anymore.
Either way, they are here. Take a look. Some of these men may surprise you. You may have forgotten how they used to look or not know what they look like today. Flip through the slides and enjoy it.
