How Do You Spell Zydrunas Ilgauskas?

ALL BALL NERVE CENTER — How do you spell Zydrunas Ilgauskas? OK, fine, I just spelled it for you, but I did without looking it up! I swear! See, part of writing about the NBA and sports is that before long you learn how to spell names that some might construe as challenging? So Ilgauskas? Got it. Krzyzewski? No sweat. Antetokuonmpo? Oh yeah. Then again, ask me to do long division and I’m useless.

Anyway, the Cavs are retiring Big Z’s number on March 8, so a wisecracking version of their mascot Moondog took to the streets of Cleveland to see if people could spell Zydrunas Ilgauskas.

    They should also praise LeBron James since LeBron is the only one who bring them into the finals. Zydrunas did nothing to them!

  2. Guest says:

    good for zydrunas, he was always a great player and if it wasnt for early injuries, who knows what he might have been

  3. dustydreamnz says:

    You spell his name how you’ve spelt it.

  4. Can you see the irony? says:

    It’s Antetokounmpo not Antetokuonmpo.

    How ironic is it that you spelled Giannis Antetokounmpo’s last name wrong. Lol, no sweat, right?
