UNLV Fan Will Name His Child “Shabazz”

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?

Go…

    If a Kentucky fan named their child Shabazz the NCAA would give the child the death penalty

    If Shabazz commits to UK I will arrange for him to have a night on the town with SexnNursinHomes.

    Truth be known, he probably would name his child that name anyway (just as soon as he actually has sex and impregnates a human woman).

    11) Exactly. Isn’t that somewhat of a recruiting violation? If it’s not yet, and a UK fan did this, the NCAA would deploy a rapid response team to write a rule on it and screw us again.

    I live in Vegas and there are only about 500 UNLV fans here. They dont even get mentioned on the local TV news except for an occasional score. If he chooses UNLV then money probably changed hands. What I think is that Shabazz likes it here in Vegas, but realizes how small a market for college basketball it is here and doesnt want to make the 200 people mad at him for leaving until he actually has to. UNLV – University of Never Leaving Vegas.

    I’m a Kentucky native who has lived in Las Vegas for 17 years…and probably the biggest Kentucky basketball fan west of the rockies… I’ve been to UNLV basketball games… trust me, the environment is NOTHING like Rupp arena… and Shabazz knows it… don’t worry BBN.
