      Legendary NBA big man Ben Wallace was one of the most recognizable players in the league during his prime.

      Wallace, who often rocked his easy-to-spot afro, is one of the best defensive players in league history. The former Detroit Pistons NBA champion is a Hall of Famer.

      The former NBA star has been retired for several years, though.
