We picked through every Division-I college basketball roster and a few smaller schools for our list. This year’s class is solid and better than last year’s All-Name Team.
My name is Bobby Roberts, so I am often jealous of people with unique names. The most unique thing about my name is that I was not born ‘Robert Roberts’, Bobby is my given name. I don’t know too many grown men named Bobby.
This list consists of names that we wished he had and ones we find humorous. Enjoy!
Before I get started, I noticed something while going through college basketball rosters. Just like a few years ago when we were swarmed with many freshmen named Shaq or Shaquille, this is the year many different spellings of ‘Kobe’ hit college basketball rosters. I have a feeling even more Kobes will be clogging rosters soon. I guess the next big wave will be college players named ‘LeBron’, which will hit in five or six years.
Some names on the list may not be their birth name, but these are the names included in the media guides. That’s good enough for us. Enjoy!
