Watch people do a terrible job of pronouncing Suns’ Igor Kokoskov

The Phoenix Suns have a new head coach!

What’s his name?

No, you can’t type it to me.

Say it out loud! Go ahead! I’ll give you a second!

Igor Kokoskov’s name is a tough one to crack down, even for our hosts and anchors after being made aware of the correct pronunciation.

If the professional speakers aren’t doing so hot, you can imagine how Valley residents did when 98.7 FM Arizona’s Sports Station anchor Andy Greenberg asked them to do it.

No one really came close, unfortunately.

There were one or two who were able to get down the traditional way to say “Kokoskov” but were not accounting for the Kokoškov.

After an entire table failed terribly, Andy decided that Family Feud rules were in play and the table next to them could come in for the steal.

To no surprise, they failed, and we were unable to find anyone in Old Town who could pronounce the name correctly. Well, besides Andy.

Better luck next time everyone.
