Sports today have a tendency to have pretty crazy giveaways. Whether it's a poster, t-shirt or even a figurine of a top player of some sort, sports like to give back to their fans. However, sometimes those giveaways don't go just as planned and some items turn out very, very wrong.

Let's take a look at the top 25 worst bobbleheads to ever grace the presence of fans.

This is a three-foot tall bobblehead and it looks nothing like Bryce Harper. Good purchase, right?

There are a few non-athletes on this list and Tom Crean's bobblehead is just creepy enough to make the list. The sad thing is that the creepy bobblehead looks a lot like him in real life.

Andre Iguodala

Andre Iguodala even complained about his own bobblehead recently, saying it was too light-skinned. In fact, it looks nothing like him -- even with a lazy eye as the cherry on top.

In honor of Beef Links Jerky, the Colorado Rockies gave these gems away at a home game. Yeah, not many people wanted them.

Maybe it's because of my bias against LeBron, but this bobblehead just screams 'annoying' more than any bobblehead on this list.

Oh, nice, a Cliff Paul bobblehead sponsored by State Farm. Yeah, I didn't want a nice Chris Paul one anyway.

Barry Zito

Zito looks like he's just wasting away since his playing days -- or at least this bobblehead is implying as much.

Shelvin Mack

Not a terrible bobblehead, but it looks like they gave Shelvin Mack a grill. I'm pretty sure he doesn't have a grill.

Brian Wilson

Brian Wilson's full beard and nice beard-themed shirt? This might actually be one of the better ones.

Tim Tebow

Tim Tebow is a likable guy, but his whole "Tebowing" fad got pretty annoying. This goes in that category of annoying things that just need to go away.

Is it bad that the James Harden bobblehead that people got looks nothing like the one on the box? It's like they got cheated.

The Rockets did it again -- they gave away another poor bobblehead. It would be fine if it was a basketball-themed one, but Dwight acting like 'Superman' with a Rockets jersey is not funny anymore.

It's unknown whether they got the hair correct on this Joakim Noah figurine, but I would surely hope so since it was sponsored by a haircut business. He just doesn't look right.

Disregard the girl's bobblehead on the left, but Rob Gronkowski is picture in a San Jose Sharks jersey, spiking a hockey puck. Why? Who knows.

Not terrible, but Mike Martz has surely seen better days.

If you're going to create a bobblehead with the likeness of an athlete, make it accurate. This is a very G-rated Chris Andersen who looks like he just ate chocolate and has zero of his tattoos. It's not like all of his tattoos are vulgar.

Dustin Pedroia

I wouldn't even be able to guess who this is without seeing the name that gives it away. Yes, this is supposedly Dustin Pedroia.

Along with the "it looks nothing like him" theme, Derrick Rose does not look anything like this. Like, at all.

Kliff Kingsbury doesn't deserve a bobblehead just yet. In fact, I don't think college coaches/athletes deserve the type of recognition. This one was aimed to please the ladies.

Max Scherzer

This Max Scherzer multi-colored eye, life-sized bobblehead will haunt your dreams.

Is this Ricky Rubio or Kevin Love? It looks like Kevin Love but it's labeled Ricky Rubio. I'm so confused.

The Colorado Rockies presented yet another questionable bobblehead series. Carlos Gonzalez and Michael Cuddyer wearing wizard hats? That's normal.

This is so creepy I cannot get over it. Possibly one of the biggest bobblehead failures in the history of bobblehead creation. Steve Nash has never looked so frightening.

This one is awesome, but terrible at the same time. Manti Te'o's girlfriend has a bobblehead before he does? Sort of.
