    NBA players whose names don't fit them

    1. Courtney Lee - Girl's name
    2. Shannon Brown - Another girl's name
    3. Rodney Stuckey - "Yo Rodney, play some defense!" sounds weird.
    4. Nene - No first or last name, similar to Cher or Madonna.
    5. Earl Smith III - Reason why he nicknamed himself "J.R"



    give more "weird names"

    I've never understood why Yao Ming has his first name on the back of his jersey instead of his last. Can someone explain?

    Rudy Gay: Awkward name for a absolute stud.

    Tony Parker: Should be something more french. How about Jacques-St Pierre?

    well, i can't come up with "weird names" per se, but what is weird is when you take a name of a major player, and you make his name "proper".

    Like Ray=Raymond
    Chris=Christopher
    Mike=Michael
    John/Jon=Jonathan

    Ray Allen=Raymond Allen

    Ron Artest=Ronald Artest

    Phil Jackson=Philip Jackson

    Gregg Popovich=Gregory Popovich

    Steve Nash=Steven Nash

    Josh Howard=Joshua Howard

    Chris Kaman=Christopher Kaman

    Al Thornton=Alexander Thornton

    Al Harrington=Alexander Harrington

    Chris Duhon=Christopher Duhon

    Nate Robinson=Nathan Robinson

    Chris Bosh=Christopher Bosh

    Vince Carter=Vincent Carter

    lol at some of these names like Vincent for Carter and Ronald for Artest
