Jeff Van Gundy Thinks Meyers Leonard Needs To Change His Name

Jeff Van Gundy is a pretty opinionated guy, but he usually makes pretty good points. It should come as no surprise, then, that the former head coach and current NBA analyst dropped some name knowledge during Thursday night's telecast of the 2012 NBA Draft on ESPN.

Coming back from a commercial break -- and presumably assuming he was not on a hot mic -- Van Gundy dropped some knowledge regarding new Portland Trail Blazers draft pick Meyers Leonard. Namely, his first and last names should be switched around.

It's certainly not the best screw-up from Thursday night's telecast -- that honor, of course, belongs to Andy Katz -- but it is probably a sentiment plenty of people were thinking while watching ESPN's coverage.
