I remember announcers use to mess up Nicolas Batum's name.

The pronounced it Bait-Um instead of Buh-Tomb

One guys name I never truly learned was Dan Gadzuric because I rarely saw him play and the few times I have, I've heard announcers pronounce it 2 ways. I have heard Gad zer ick and I have heard Gad zer eke. Which one is it Bucks fans?

All the way until the 07 Finals, ESPN announcers were still calling Anderson Varejao "Anderson Veragio".

Even the Monty Python would have considered that too silly.

(By the way, in the original French, it's pronounced Knee - Call - Ah - Bat - Oom)
