    Everyone has been pronouncing Melvin Ejim's last name wrong

    It is pronounced EDGE-um, not Eee-jum.

    I don't like him as much now. Seems a little unathletic.

    I heard Tj pronounce it "edge-um" in his interview on M&M last night. I immediately wondered if we all had it wrong.

    Everybody? I knew it was Edge-um for months. Can't you tell when I type it? :)

    I'd like to propose that we just call him "Johnny Monster Truck Dunk" from now on.

    I'm a little rusty on my English. How do we get the sound of an "D" out of Ejim?

    Re: Everyone has been pronouncing Melvin Ejim's last name wrong

    So Hoiberg was also pronouncing it wrong all day yesterday?

    That's not a good sign. I would think the head coach should know how to pronounce his player's names?

    Re: Everyone has been pronouncing Melvin Ejim's last name wrong

    Based on this new information, his nickname has to be Melvin "The Edge" Ejim.

    I don't bring my own opinions, just attack others.
