Last year, Evan Fournier made headlines last season for a rather peculiar tweet. The then newly-acquired Boston Celtics forward asked the team’s fans to search up his last name on Google. Now, as a member of the New York Knicks, Fournier isn’t inclined to make that same proposition to Knicks fans.
When asked by Knicks beat reporter Fred Katz if he wanted to warn Knicks fans about his last name, Fournier hilariously replied, “Not yet.” He then elaborates on it, saying,
“I really like the Knicks fans so far so I don’t want to do that to them.”
Evan Fournier on if he’ll warn Knicks fans not to Google him: “Not yet. I really like the Knicks fans so far so I don’t want to do that to them.”

Hi @celtics fans,
If you’re not familiar with me, please Google my last name.

So what’s up with Fournier’s last name, and why shouldn’t you Google it? Well, a quick Google search of his last name will yield you with the medical term “Fournier’s gangrene”. It’s a life-threatening disease that kills your body’s soft tissues. What makes it a dangerous Google search are the images of those afflicted with this disease: long story short, it’s gruesome. The disease essentially eats away at your body’s flesh. No Knicks fan would wish…
