Is it too much to ask that we get hosts for NBA All-Star Saturday Night who are alert, aware, and know the game? About an hour and a half after Isiah Thomas slurred his way through some non-rehearsed nonsense, DJ Khaled claimed he had no idea how to pronounce one of the...four names he needed to know to set the Dunk Contest off right. Pat Connaughton, we are so, so sorry.
And, of course, he pronounced the name properly after already getting the embarrassment out of the way ahead of time. Thanks, Khaled.
Planet Pat surely deserved better -- the Notre Dame star, former Baltimore Orioles prospect, and real estate magnate is making his bones for the best team in the NBA.
Everyone else in the building can say his name. Say his name, DJ!
