Videos someone by the name of "runforthecube" made showing the (not-exactly) correct way to pronounce professional basketball players' names. From his page descreption, "I'm an unprofessionally trained Linguistics expert in the English language."

We hit the YouTubes late on a Friday afternoon looking for a few fun slam dunk highlights or maybe a Lou Williams rap video and instead we find… these.

They’re a bunch of videos someone by the name of “runforthecube” made showing the (not-exactly) correct way to pronounce professional basketball players’ names. From his page description, “I’m an unprofessionally trained Linguistics expert in the English language.”
