They say that no two people are alike. However, certain athletes and celebrities sure do look a lot alike. Even those bearing no relation to each other sometimes can get mixed up with one another. Since it's assumed you know what each athlete looks like, take a gander at the pictures of the celebrities used and try to not mix them up with their athlete counterparts.

Comedian Orny Adams and Spoelstra bear an uncanny resemblance. Even though they were popular in different eras, Adams in the early 2000s looked like a current Spoelstra. After LeBron left the Heat, Spoelstra may need a comedian like Adams by his side this season.

This one is for the oldies out here. Kiel is too old to have new pictures of him online, but the older audience will realize how much these two look alike. Some say Ovechkin has some throwback in his game, and he certainly looks like a throwback.

This comedy actor and tennis player couldn't be further apart in career paths, but they couldn't be closer together in looks. Each is around the same age, and apparently age is treating the two about the same way as they look as if they could be twins.

Smith is the bigger star of this duo, but Horry can still say he looks like the former 'Fresh Prince of Bel-Air' main man. Each has been very successful in their particular career and could pass for the other on the street.

This might be the pair that looks the most alike of any. The Reds pitcher actually looks identical to the British star known for his role as Batman in the latest Batman trilogy. After throwing two no-hitters in his career already, maybe Bailey shares some of his genes with Gotham's protector.

Each of these stars has been in the limelight for quite some time even though they've never quite crossed paths. Hasselhoff is known for being on the beach shirtless while Dan Marino made his living playing for the Dolphins. Those dolphins and the ocean go hand in hand, so maybe these two aren't as far apart as we think.

One of the best players in the NHL and the SNL star look very similar, but both have established such a career for themselves that they may not be mixed up too much. Crosby is very serious while Samberg is the exact opposite, so in the case of these two, looks can be deceiving.

Luongo stops pucks in the NHL and Cohen has played a race car driver in 'Talladega Nights', so both are involved in sports, right? Well, not quite, but they do look almost identical. Both stars are foreign to the United States, but have made their living here, making us all realize how much they look alike.

Wood once seemed destined for greatness in MLB while Durst seemed destined for, well, mediocrity. Durst fulfilled that potential more as Wood's injury-shortened career fell short of expectations. Even so, this duo looks extremely similar.

Both of these men are tough, and both of these men are bald with blue eyes. Ripken Jr. built his reputation as baseball's iron man while Wilkos proved his toughness as a body guard on Jerry Springer before earning his own show. Other than perhaps the size difference, these two could easily get mixed up in public.

Both of these guys really knew how to rock in their day. McGwire was busy resurrecting baseball in the late 1990s with Sammy Sosa while Hetfield's Metallica was busy resurrecting America's love of heavy metal. At one point in time, these two were at the height of their popularity and could've been seen as brothers.

One of the cogs of the Bulls' championship teams also happens to look like Wolverine. Of course, Wolverine is portrayed by star actor Hugh Jackman who looks exactly like the former Bulls star. These two are slightly apart in age, but at Jackman's age, Kukoc looked exactly like him.

The Steelers' head man has quite the resemblance to ABC star Omar Epps. These two actually look extremely similar despite their age difference, but then again Tomlin has always looked slightly younger than his age.

The former NBA player best known for his resemblance to any fan who could walk onto the court (despite his large frame) looks a lot like the former 'Friends' actor. Scalabrine seems like he would be a good actor, so perhaps these two could star in a movie as twins some day.

6. Shaun White - Rupert Grint

Okay, so this one is a lot about the hair color. Still, the Olympic champion and former Harry Potter star look alike even without their similar hair color and styles. Now, one can only wonder how White would've fared if he were able to try his hand at Quidditch.

NBA journeyman and current Chicago Bull Aaron Brooks may remind many of a particular comedian. That comedian, Chris Rock, has the same shrunken looking face, but he cracks a few more jokes than his counterpart.

Morgan has played in almost as many games over the last few years as Bynum has. While Bynum has been sitting on the bench and getting paid handsomely for it, Morgan has been making droves of people laugh with his over-the-top comedy style.

3. Kyle Korver - Ashton Kutcher

Everything about these two bears resemblance to one another. They're around the same age, same height and have the same hair style and color. While Kutcher isn't quite as good at shooting three-pointers, his public persona is definitely the better of the two.

2. Jarrod Washburn - Kiefer Sutherland

The former Mariners hurler and savior of the nation from the hit series '24' definitely look like they could be related. While Washburn is retired and Jack is just beginning his quest to save the country, these two nonetheless look very similar.

The Dallas Mavericks' head man, especially with his shaved head, looks exactly like the comedy star. With their matching animated styles at times, these two may share DNA beyond what determines appearances.
