SportsIllustrated.com's Arash Markazi claims to be a sportswriter. He claims to know a lot about basketball. But,even excusing the worse-than-amateurish formatting issues in the beginning of his article, he apparently doesn't know how to spell the name of one of the NBA's most prolific scorers.

In one paragraph in his Spurs-Lakers Game 2 summary, he spells Spurs shooting guard Manu Ginobili's name "Ginobli" three consecutive times. Let me say that again: three consecutive times.

If Markazi had committed the error once, it would be understandable. Twice would be worrisome. But three times? Really?
