Disgustingly frightful. But no way he cracks our list.

Happy Halloween: The Top 10 Scariest Players in NBA History

Just got home from Rockets 112, Mavs 102 at American Airlines Center. Plenty of ghouls, goblins and freaky occurences at the joint tonight. To wit, Jerry Jones at a basketball game. And the ManiAACs performing a dance routine to Michael Jackson's "Thriller". Perfectly synchronized, I might add.

Now, admittedly, I'm not the cutest button on the shirt, but I couldn't help but take note of some of the night's scary faces. Duuuude. I looked over here and there was Yao Ming's ominous mug. And over there was Mavs' assistant coach Popeye Jones and his frightening ears.

Got me to thinking. Some NBA talents are attractive. Others, not so much.

If you're scrambling for a last-minute Halloween costume sure to scare the Trick-or-Treaters plum out of your neighborhood, I got you covered.
