    Team USA Basketball’s recruit squad showed up for mini-camp this week ahead of the 2019 FIBA Basketball World Cup and 2020 Olympic tryouts and received a roasting on Twitter after player photos were released.

    The player photos turned out so poorly that, in one case, the Washington Wizards deleted a post featuring a brutal mug shot of star point guard John Wall.

    "John Wall I got a barber in the DC area if you need him," liltony09 said on Instagram.

    Ms. Wall was absolutely not impressed.

    ​San Antonio Spurs guard DeMar DeRozan didn't have much better luck.

    ​But it was Wall who was first to become a meme.

    One daring netizen even formally proposed Wall become the new "10 guy."

    ​Detroit Pistons dunk artist Blake Griffin drew comparisons to Frankenstein and "King of the Hill."

    Some Twitter users speculated that the photographer had no sense of lighting and mistakenly used a wide-angle shot for close-ups, which can change how faces look in pictures.
