While we marvel at Dirk Nowitzki’s luscious, flowing locks, other NBA players are just as recognizable for their lack of hair.

ESPN published a piece attempting to answer that exact question, superimposing incredible hair on MJ and company. The results are fairly funny if not a little predictable:

The pictures work because it plays to the inherent comedy in extremes. All of these athletes had hair at one point or another, but their hairstyles weren’t anything that would draw an insane reaction.
