Few athletes have undergone as drastic a physical makeover as Nuggets forward Chris Anderson. The Birdman joined the NBA in 2001 as a fresh-faced 23-year-old and has transformed his body into a traveling art show. Uncoached has a good look at Anderson's changing appearance through the years and here's another gallery of athletes who have radically changed their appearance over the years.
Buster Douglas And The Art Of Acting
Buster Douglas will always be known as the guy who pulled off the biggest upset in boxing history. Twenty years later, he is promoting his barbecue cookbook for diabetics, tweeting up a storm and starring in this incredibly awesome low-budget ad for SafeAuto. And you thought the punches in pro wrestling were fake?
Now That You've Finished Lunch
Here are the biggest pukers in sports history (with videos to make sure you're nauseous).

Hot Clicks reader Aaron Farber from Sacramento suggested I make Cerina Vincent today's Lovely Lady of the Day. I can see why.
Paging Christian Laettner
In case you're not following Bucknell basketball, the Bison beat Richmond on a buzzer-beater Sunday afternoon. Duke fans may recognize the play they used to secure the victory.
Poor Jamaal
You have to feel bad for Jamaal Charles today. The Chiefs running back fell .02 yards short (less than three-quarters of an inch) of breaking Jim Brown's record for most yards per rush in a season. Brown's mark was 6.4 yards and Charles finished at 6.38. Even worse, Charles had the record sewn up but lost a yard on his final carry of the day.
SI Vault Photo of the Day
When I'm not filling in for Jimmy, I run the SI Vault and post funny and/or embarrassing photos to the SI Vault Twitter Feed. Today was a classic - members of the Jackson Five standing over a fallen Muhammad Ali. Check out Michael's foot laying directly on Ali's chest.
