Aaron A. Gordon plays for the Orlando Magic. Aaron W. Gordon is a reporter who likely does not possess the same dunking abilities.
One Twitter user, however, was flabbergasted at the writer's audacity to "steal" the moniker. This person demanded that the reporter change his name on Twitter so he's not "ripping off" the athlete.
As Aaron W. Gordon tried to explain, that's just his name, one he was given years before the NBA player was born. Apparently, in the eyes of this Twitter critic, the 22-year-old forward has "earned the right" to be society's only Aaron Gordon.
Upon seeing the exchange, the Magic's Gordon defended his fellow A.G.:
It's hard to tell if this was a sincere request or a Twitter troll seeking attention. The rest of the conversation makes the latter seem likely.
After all, how can anyone trust someone who apparently thinks Draymond Green is a bad basketball player?
