If you have ever wondered what NBA players look like as pieces of sushi, your big day is here. Yujia Hu, a sushi chef in Milan, posted a series of images to his Instagram, @sakanasushimilano, stylizing rice and seaweed as ballers. The resulting images are delicious.
This roll captures The King's headband look and his tiny thin mustache.
Out of respect for one of the greatest to ever play the game, The Big Fundamental model shows his patchy facial hair and receding hairline perfectly.
This sushi sculpture replicates not only Cousins' facial hair but also the top of his head and his headband.
Danilo Gallinari's spiky hair was replicated onto this ball of rice. Try that on pizza, Italy.
Everything about this Andrea Bargnani model is precise, especially the detail done on the eyebrows. Again, an Italian player works on Japanese food.
Look at those eyelids! And is that some sort of shooting sleeve?

That forehead and hair streak are right on the money like a fadeaway 3-pointer in the final minute of Game 7 of the NBA Finals.
