One of my favorite artists is Anderson Paak. Took me a year to figure out his last name was pronounced Pak and not Pahk but by then I was so used to calling him the wrong thing I still do it to this day. Even though Izzo should probably know how to pronounce Ayo's name, I doubt he's pronouncing it wrong just to be an a**
and its also sign of aging ... i doubt it was intentional, show him some pity, which is what we should give him after tonights beat down

I dont know man, he seemed overall pretty complimentary in the interview (though I was multitasking while listening so I could be mistaken) and people of Izzo's age are just flat out bad with different names. I had a professor in law school who got my name very wrong every time he called it (which was a lot, because Socratic method) and I just stopped correcting him after a while. Guy was super nice in every interaction I had with him, so it wasn't on purpose, and very smart, but just couldn't figure out my (very foreign) name.
How do you mispronounce Juiceman?

I went and watched it. Maybe I jumped the shark. I forget how old he is. I still find it a little hard to believe that you can't pronounce the names of the best players in your conference, that you've seen for the last three years?

I'll cut him some old people slack. Maybe Ayo will catch wind of it and it becomes court fuel. Another triple dub and Izzo can call him whatever he wants!

Only thing he needs to call him is, "best player in the league".
