Yes, That's His Real Name

If you recall the erstwhile Name of the Year tournament, you are no stranger to odd sports names. We’ve almost gotten used to them. But in a world where people travel from different cultures, some legitimate names can still surprise us. The internet lit up today over a French professional basketball player who shone brightly in an exhibition game between Metropolitans 92 and G League Ignite. The game was broadcast to showcase the future top draft picks Victor Wembanyama and Scoot Henderson. But all anyone can talk about today is Steeve Ho You Fat

Ho You Fat was born in French Guiana, where his father, of Chinese descent, runs a logistics company and his mother is an African dance teacher. He has been playing professionally since 2008. Ho You Fat is 6′ 8″ and weights a mere 198 pounds. His is a fascinating story, but what everyone wants is a jersey with his name. Ho You Fat might be able to monetize that desire and retire.
