So if it comes to pass that the Celtics end up playing the Magic at some point in the playoffs, you may not recognize the Orlando players.

That's because the Magic last week vowed not to shave until their playoff run ends, like hockey players.

So the clever folks at the Orlando Sentinel whipped together a neat web toy called "Beards of Glory" that lets you see what players would look like with various styles of beard.

For example, you can put "The Wookie" on Dwight Howard (as shown above). Or check out J.R. Redick with "The Teen Wolf." Jameer Nelson with "The Kimbo." Ryan Anderson with "The Boy Band."

So forget that adage "you can't tell the players without a scorecard." In today's world, it may be you can't tell the players without an interactive.
