Well, it’s settled.
Buddy Hield jumped on the Dan Patrick Show to discuss the NCAA tournament and in turn, cleared up his name.
The Sooners guard’s real first name is Chavano and his mom nicknamed him Buddy as a baby after the character Bud Bundy.
“I was a red baby growing up. I was really red as a baby,” Hield told the Dan Patrick Show. “When I was two months old, my mom and her friend Carol were sitting on the bed and said, ‘He looks just like Bud Bundy’.”
“After that, it turned into Buddy.”
