In honor of the start of the 80th Scripps National Spelling Bee, the Ball Don't Lie Board of Linguistics and Language has created a little contest to help kill your Thursday afternoon. The prize? Absolutely nothing, tax-free.
How do you win? Simple: Correctly identify and spell the full names of the eight past and present NBA players pictured below. That's it. Best of luck, young Aishwarya Pastapur.
Two more things:
Yes, bonus points will be awarded for NOT using the Internet to cheat.
No, names will not be used in a sentence.
