In a game that featured two of the most sought-after basketball prospects in the world, it was another athlete who stole the spotlight because of his unusual name.
French basketball player Steeve Ho You Fat went viral immediately after American viewers spotted his jersey for the first time during ESPN’s broadcast on Tuesday night.
Several social media users refused to believe what they were seeing until they completed a quick internet search to verify that the player’s name is, indeed, real.
ESPN commentators were also having a lot of fun during the broadcast.
Scoot Henderson, the projected No. 2 pick, also showed off his talents in Tuesday’s showdown.
