We see some ridiculous names in basketball recruiting these days, but this one from Indiana may take the cake. Jumpshot Warner is a freshman at Franklin High School in Indiana, and believe it or not, his name could have been much worse.
“My dad wanted to name me ‘Indiana Jumpshot,’” Warner told Indy Star’s Gregg Doyel. “I think people would have looked at me like I was crazy. What if I moved out of state? What would they call me, ‘Kansas Jumpshot’ or something? I wasn’t a fan of that one. But I like the name ‘Jumpshot.’”
Jumpshot’s full name is Caden JT Jumpshot Warner, but he’s always gone by Jumpshot. His parents told Doyel they considered naming him Larry Isaiah, or Macy if he was a girl after Kyle Macy, but Jumpshot it was. Thankfully, he likes basketball (and so far is pretty good at it), but can you imagine if he didn’t?
For more, let Doyel entertain you at the Indy Star.
