Once you hear how Jonas Valanciunas’ last name is pronounced, it’s not as hard to say as it looks. It’s pretty simple: val-un-chew-nas. But don’t tell that to Charles Barkley. Listening to him try to pronounce Valanciunas’ last name was pure gold.
Shaq and Chuck picked teams for the Rising Stars Challenge game next weekend where they oppose each other as coaches. Barkley decided to select Valanciunas, and he did it with the best pronunciation of Jonas’ name possible. I always knew there was a sauce somewhere in there.
