Fan Gets Mad That Journalist Has The Same Name As Basketball Player, Asks Him To Change It

By Mustafa Gatollari

Having the same name as a famous person can be pretty darn frustrating. Just ask fictional character Michael Bolton from the movie Office Space about his unfortunate name-sharing with the smooth pop singer. It gets old, and it gets old FAST. There's only so many "are you related to" jokes you can take before you just hit your tipping point.

Journalist Aaron W. Gordon shares the same name as a famous basketball player for the Orlando Magic. 

A fact that befuddled a fan of Gordon (the basketball player, not the transit writer for the Village Voice) to the point where he direct messaged the Gordon he's not a fan of to tell him he doesn't have the right name. Strong words.
