Kobe 'Bean' Bryant, Rajon 'Pierre' Rondo and Other Middle Names of NBA Stars

The Orlando Magic's official website has put together an interesting slideshow that reveals the middle names of various NBA stars.

My favorite is probably Tim "Theodore" Duncan, because when it's said all at once it makes him sounds like a president, which is kind of perfect. But a close second is Damian "Lamonte Ollie" Lillard, because that's just so much middle name.
