Changing your name is a pretty big thing to most people. So is getting a tattoo. For Willie Cauley-Stein, both are just part of the journey of life, man.

In May, Willie legally changed his middle name to “Trill,” which Urban Dictionary tells us means either “true and real” or “too real.” After Willie worked out for the Charlotte Hornets this morning, Max Bultman of The Sporting News asked him which definition he liked best, to which Willie admitted that when he made “Trill” his middle name, he didn’t even know what it meant:

“Neither. It’s my nickname. I honestly didn’t even know what it meant,” Cauley-Stein said. “My boys and everybody on campus were calling me that, and I just went with it.”

Luckily, he is true, real, and too real. Here are some of his moves from the workout this morning:
