Ex-Kentucky forward Willie Cauley-Stein will be off to the NBA soon, and he'll have a new middle name to take with him.
Former Kentucky forward Willie Cauley-Stein will be off to the NBA soon, and he'll have a new middle name to take with him.
The SI All-American wanted to make his hyphenated last name official, (he was born Willie Durmond Cauley Jr.) and while he was filing his order in district court he also made a legal change to his middle name, according to the Lexington Herald-Leader.
His new middle name? Trill.
Cauley-Stein's mother explained to the Herald-Leader that Trill is the "nickname his 'boys' call him." Trill is a combination of the words true and is defined on Urban Dictionary as meaning "to be true to ones self and real with all."
