Bulls Tue Dec 08 2009
Not quite, but, from the "don't see that every day file," the former Bulls center recently won an eBay auction to dub a new species of shrimp with the classic binomial (and Linnaeus-based) naming system. Longley's winning bid was for $2,900 Aussie dollars (you win multiple NBA championships and you call that kinda money, "pocket change"), the seven-footer went with the sweet and sentimental notion of naming the species of crustacea, Lebbeus clarehanna after his 15-year-old daughter, Clare Hanna.

Think you could've come up with a better name for this cute little guy? Leave your suggestions for Lebbeus clarehanna in the comments.
