I have a friend who has trouble pronouncing his R's. So when Von Wafer made the Rockets at the beginning of the season, there was bound to be some confusion. Sure enough, during the Memphis-Houston preseason game, my friend broke the ice.
"Nice shot, Wafer."
"You mean Rafer?"
"No, I mean Wafer."
"No, I mean Wafer. Wait, is his name Von?"
This continued to happen and still does to this day. So I wondered how Bill Worrell would handle it. Watch this video below, and at :25 and :30, see if you can tell the difference between Wafer and Rafer (You know what's coming due to the video's title, but come on, work with me here):
Be sure to roll your R's, children!
