Who changed his first name to World?
Lloyd Free, a guard for several teams between 1975-1988, changed
his name to World while playing for the Golden State Warriors in
the early 1980s. His middle initial is B (I have never known what
it stands for ... maybe is just stands for B) and his name became
World B. Free. Free had been given the nickname of 'World' on the
playgrounds of Brooklyn where he went to high school.
