While watching a Miami Heat game it’s hard to not focus on Joel Anthony’s enormous forehead and while Mike of KnicksBricks.com did so he envisioned Soda Popinski, the character from the NES hit Mike Tyson’s Punchout.

That got him thinking and resulted in one of the most hilarious lists of the season.

“If we were going to cast a live action version of Mike Tyson’s Punch Out, which basketball players and coaches would make the cut? As it turns out, there are some pretty great choices for all of the roles. Also, as it turns out, Mike Tyson’s Punchout was one gigantic racist stereotype party. That definitely did not register with me in first grade. Well,  I put together a list of NBA characters who I think were born to play these roles. Here is who I propose:

Glass Joe/Chase Budinger
