Default The weirdest NBA player names thread.

Find the weirdest names to ever be on an NBA jersey and show picture if you can.

New skool or Old Skool.

I'll start it off.

Vassilis Spanoulis

Not really. Well, for English language speakers, maybe. But "Vassilis" actually means "Bill". Spanoulis is kinda rare, but not ultra-rare.
Same goes with Mamadou N'Diaye. Especially the surname is among the most used in Senegal and most often, there are 2-3 players with this surname in their N.T.

I'll give you a rare international surname: Ginobili.

only know one asian baller and he's ok; can't shoot but can drive to the basket. I usually ball with blacks and hispanics.. can't call him Yao Ming because he's too short
