If you call yourself a true basketball fan you’ve no doubt seen Spike Lee’s “He Got Game.”

The name Jesus Shuttlesworth, played by a young Ray Allen, has arguably become more popular than the movie itself.

This season the NBA decided to have a little fun and they’re doing “nickname games” where players can wear a nickname on the back of their jersey instead of the standard last name.

 King James may be the best player in the world but Jesus Shuttlesworth just might be the most popular.
