No uncomfortable stone was left unturned by Battier on this night. When he had a chance to let the world know that he and former Miami University point guard Shane Larkin had the same first name, he pounced on it like a slightly awkward cheetah.

"A couple of Miami Shanes right here," he said to Larkin, clearly proud of himself for coming up with such a witty opening line. Battier was probably thinking, "Man, ESPN is hiring me for sure after I retire. I am set for the rest of my life after that one," while everyone watching at home was like. "PLEASE STOP LETTING SHANE TALK. I CAN'T HANDLE IT ANY MORE."
