Darrell Kurt Rambis (AKA Kyriakos Rambidis, Kiriakos Rambidis) (in Greek: Κυριάκος Ραμπίδης; born February 25, 1958) is a retired American professional basketball player and current head coach for the National Basketball Association’s Minnesota Timberwolves.

We can only assume Kyriakos translates roughly into “extra short shorts.”

Just another reason basketball coaches don’t wear the uniform, a la baseball managers.
