The thing about Media Day photos is that they are always awkward. And I don't just mean the forced, 3rd grade yearbook photo smiles. I mean, those are awkward, and make them almost difficult to look at. But on top of that you have the ridiculous poses. If anything, the Spurs poses this year are rather tame (which should really not be surprising whatsoever). The arms outstretched, and Mahinmi palming a ball. That's nothing compared to the idiotic poses some of the other players strike. Check out Upside and Motor for further evidence. And supposedly there are pictures out there off Pop sporting a full on beard but I haven't wandered across them yet. I'll definitely post those if I find them.
