On the off chance you’re a Wizards fan who purchased a Sheldon McClellan jersey this season, you’re going to want a refund.

McClellan, a Washington rookie, revealed Wednesday that over the All-Star break he returned home to Houston and legally changed his name to Sheldon Mac.

According to Chase Hughes of CSN Mid-Atlantic, McClellan made the change because his given name came from his father, with whom he has no relationship. He reportedly thought about doing it before the NBA Draft but thought that would be confusing for teams scouting him.

Via CSN Mid-Atlantic:

Mac said it shouldn’t be difficult for him to get used to it, as all of his friends already referred to him as Mac anyways. 

Mac could have gone with his mother’s last name, which is Johnson. But he likes Mac better.

“I just added a little swag to it.”

Mac now joins World B. Free and Metta World Peace as NBA players to change their names mid-career. And while he didn’t go quite as radical as they did, Sheldon Mac is a pretty badass name.

Honestly, the most confusing aspect of this could be that now we’re all going to constantly confused Sheldon Mack with Jazz guard Shelvin Mack, who once played for Washington.

Then again, McClellan has played only 25 games this season, averaging 9.9 minutes and 2.9 points per contest, so you might not have to remember his name that often.
