Stan Van Gundy Makeover Machine Wins The Internets

Orlando Magic head coach Stan Van Gundy is…uh, how do I put this mildly? Let’s just say he is not one of the most handsome fellows out there. While he is a fantastic coach whose knowledge of  X’s and O’s ranks him among the best in the business, unfortunately for him, his Ron Jeremy-esque, slovenly appearance, in this  image-obsessed culture we live in, leaves much to be desired.

The folks at the Orlando Sentinel are trying to do their part to help their beleaguered, looks-embattled basketball coach with “The SVG  Makeover” machine, an interactive application where we are provided a multitude of options for different styles of facial hair which Van Gundy could employ to improve how he presents himself.

Above is the blank slate, if you will, for Coach Van Gundy, known by the Makeover Machine as “Baby Face.” After the jump, a few of my personal favorites.

THE WINFIELD

MUTTON CHOPS

THE WALRUS

THE KLINGON

THE ZZ TOP

And finally, my absolute favorite:

THE JACK SPARROW

ARRRGHHH, mateys!

Truthfully, the guyliner kind of works for him. Van Gundy should seriously consider it.
