When there is a permanent player_id field, it will supersede some of those fields. If there is still a demand to include first_name, last_name, and display_name fields at that time, we can discuss it. The way I envision this working with a player_id is by using the roster method to load each team's roster into your database, then join on the player_id field when working with box score data.
