Alex LaRoche: C-. Dirk Nowitzki's beard is way better when he grows it out.

Jack Passion: B. If you're going to shave part of your beard, keep the lines fine. My fourth law in The Facial Hair Handbook is solid, subtle and sharp. I would let him slide for having such a short mustache, but the stubble coming in above the beard line cannot transcend a B.

Miletus Callehan: B-. To be honest, I think LeBron is as confused about what type of facial hair to rock, as I am trying to guess what it is. LeBron, pick something and stay with it! Actually, I think a Donegal would look good on you.
