It's #Movember and we here with the Phoenix Suns are all about supporting men's health. That's why we've put together the Top 5 Mustaches in franchise history. Love it or hate it, you're in for one hairy ride.
Honorable Mention Horacio Llamas:
While we love the fact that he was the first Mexican born player to play in the NBA, we couldn't quite put his stache in the top 5 of all-time. While it looks very Magnum P.I.-esque, and the chest hair is a nice touch, it wasn't quite robust enough to make the cut.
No. 5 Charles Barkley:
It's very rare, if ever, that you'll see a Top 5 list involving the Suns and not have Barkley towards the top of it. While his mustache is nice, it lacks the fullness and robust shape that would make it one of the greatest in franchise history. His mustache is a "Sir" but someone else's is the "king."
No.4 Ron Lee:
His lip toupée is nice but it is his afro that really makes you look twice. If you were allowed to include his mutton chops in the mustache discussion, he'd be a top two choice, alas you can't and that's why Lee is at No. 4.
No. 3 Kurt Rambis:
While his flavor savor is pretty spectacular, between the Revenge of the Nerds glasses and the short-shorts, we just felt there was too much distracting from Rambis' stache to place him in the top two.
No. 2 Pat Riley:
His lower brow was actually the one they modeled Ron Burgandy's after -- OK, not really -- but the fact he spent less time in Phoenix than an Adam Sandler movie spends in theaters means Riley couldn't be No. 1.
No. 1 Connie Hawkins:
Is there any doubt that the Hawk's fantastic lip foliage would be in the top spot? His Foo Manchu is of epic proportions and when you see it soaring through the air it's like a majestic, hairy-winged bird.
Don't forget to make some Movember mustache memories of your Friday when your Suns take on the Brooklyn Nets. In honor of #Movember, the first 10,000 fans in attendance at Friday’s Phoenix Suns-Brooklyn Nets game will receive a Suns branded “moustache on a stick” in support of men’s health awareness. Tip-off is set for 7 p.m. at US Airways Center. Get your tickets here.
