Chris Bosh Klingon

I really like the 2010-11 Rookies and Stars Basketball set. The cards look unusual and almost like a painting of the players (check out the Gerald Wallace card). This card of Bosh almost looks like a painting. I then began to take a closer look at Chris Bosh's face on this card and something looked familiar.

I realize that with the Fu Man Chu beard and the positioning of Chris's eyebrows, Chris's face looks a lot like the 1960s Star Trek Klingons.

The Klingons from the James T Kirk era or 1960s do not look like the Klingons from Star Trek the Next Generation era or the later Star Trek movies (such as the Undiscovered Country). The reason I heard was that the Klingons look different later on is because the were quickly evolving. Thus they went from above to Worf in about 75 years (or the other reason was because the 1960s Star Trek did not have the budget for elaborate costumes).
