Quinn Buckner better work on his pronunciation game right quick, because Bojan Bogdanovic is now on the Pacers and he can’t say his name for beans. It comes out different every time, usually accompanied by some spluttering and soft repeating of himself. It was fine when Bogdanovic was on a team that he didn’t have to commentate for every game, because he could hide the fact that he can’t pronounce eastern European names by simply not speaking up when Bogdanovic did anything. Even worse, there’s now ANOTHER Bogdanovic whose name he can’t pronounce.
He’s been trying to cover up this lexical deficit by saying “Bogey” instead. Fair enough. The Bucks commentators don’t say Antetokounmpo very often. And almost every commentator says LeBron these days, because “James” causes marble mouth in most humans. It’s science.
