Kentucky fans are crazy. We can all agree on that. But there is a difference between crazy and naming your child after a basketball recruit. We’re not that crazy. That’s borderline clinically insane – and the idea is being tossed around in Vegas. A UNLV fan says he will name his child after Shabazz Muhammad if the No. 1 player in the country chooses to play for the Runnin’ Rebels. Seriously.
The love from UNLV is something Shabazz is used to. He says as many as 200 fans show up to his high school practices wearing UNLV gear. We want the 6-foot-6 wing man just as bad as Rebel fans do, but flooding Bishop Gorman’s practices is just something we can’t compete with. Luckily for us, we have this guy named John Calipari. And we’re all willing to name our children after him.
Does anyone have a better offer for Shabazz? Maybe ShaBoone’s Butcher Shop?
