Reports are in from the Miami Heat playoff camp, and it appears we have a name crisis.
Goran Dragic — not his brother, Zoran Dragic, mind you — has apparently been dubbed Gordon, unknowingly, by a teammate.
A mystery teammate, thanks to Heat beat reporter Jason Lieser of the Palm Beach Post.
No joke-- One of the Heat players referred to his team's point guard as "Gordon" today. Dragic's been in the league since '08 man.— Jason Lieser (@JasonLieser) April 22, 2016
Wasn't a misspeak, either. This person definitely thinks he has a teammate named Gordon.— Jason Lieser (@JasonLieser) April 22, 2016
Who is the culprit?
Here are the odds Extra Mustard has set.
1,000,000/1: Goran Dragic. Self-explanatory.
100,000/1: Chris Bosh. Not traveling with the team.
200/1: Dwyane Wade. Takes classes at Harvard.
100/1: Udonis Haslem. Too old to care anymore.
75/1: Amar’e Stoudemire. They were teammates back in Phoenix.
75/1: Gerald Green. Also teammates in Phoenix.
50/1: Josh Richardson. He seems to be good at everything right now.
30/1: Justise Winslow. Also has an unconventionally spelled first name.
25/1: Joe Johnson. New in town.
12/1: Luol Deng. Gordon is a common name in England.
10/1: Josh McRoberts. Gordon is a common name at Duke.
8/1: Tyler Johnson. Honestly, we just forgot he was on the roster.
15/2: Hassan Whiteside. 2K only shows the last names on-court.
5/1: Briante Weber. He was just on the Grizzlies and those guys definitely didn’t know each other’s names.
2/1: Dorell Wright. Just came back from playing ball in China, plus, there is nobody named Goran in China.
