As Matthew Dellavedova was hustling the Cleveland Cavaliers to another stunning victory Tuesday night over the Golden State Warriors, most of his Australian countrymen continued scratching their heads and struggling to learn his name.

LeBron James may be playing some of his career best post-season games but it’s Cleveland Cavaliers guard Matthew Dellavedova who causing a ruckus in the NBA playoffs with his aggressive style on the court.

“Del-a-vid-va, Del-a-vid-ova…I’ll learn his name eventually,” a presenter on the country’s main satellite news channel said Wednesday, just hours after Dellavedova turned in another remarkable performance.
