Lou Amundson was signed by the New Orleans Pelicans on Tuesday and was immediately pressed into action for the team’s game against the Los Angeles Lakers the same day. Since he was only on the team for a few hours before playing in his first game, the equipment staff didn’t have time to stitch his last name onto the back of his jersey. He ended up playing with no name on his back.

I guess that’s one way to ensure your players are playing for the name on the front of the jersey.
Amundson actually works out in LA — I’ve seen him practicing in the offseason at UCLA many times — so he had no trouble joining the Pelicans at Staples Center for the contest. It actually worked out quite well.
