Watch NBA rookies try to spell 'Antetokounmpo'

BY Jimmy Traina • August 11, 2014

As Orlando Magic forward Aaron Gordon said, "I'm not a speller, I'm an NBA player."

Gordon and several other NBA rookies were recently asked to spell Thanasis Antetokounmpo's last name.

Antetokounmpo, who was born in Athens, Greece, was drafted in the second round by the Knicks in this year's draft.

As you'll see, the guard's last name proved to be an insurmountable challenge for his fellow rookies.
