Los Angeles Lakers spell new player’s name wrong

We imagine it is an incredibly special moment for a young athlete when he or she sees their name on a professional team’s jersey for the first time.

The Los Angeles Lakers selected the Wyoming forward with the second of their two first round picks, 27th overall, in Thursday night’s NBA Draft.

Later in the evening, after also nabbing former Stanford Cardinal Anthony Brown in the second round, they tweeted out a photo of the players’ names on their new Lakers duds.
