Kagi no Kakkata Heya ep 7

Noticed something interesting in the above screencap from episode 7. The jumbled up names of NBA players!

David Roman - Never heard the name. Probably random.

Dirk Nowitzki - Last year's champ and his correct spelling.

Gilbert Stackhouse and Jerry Darnell Arenas - supposed to be Gilbert Arenas and Jerry Stackhouse.

Joe Johnson - Former Phoenix Suns :( and now Atlanta Hawks player who is very overpaid.

Happy to see some sort of NBA easter eggs, in a Japanese dorama no less. Someone working on this show is a fan or just looked up random NBA players for English names. The Japanese names might mean something but it hard to see some of the kanji and chances are I wouldn't know who the names refer to.
