What to do with the Yellow Mamba

After my poll about how awesome Brandon Roy's nickname is to BE readers, I think it's definitively NOT AWESOME. 

Or is it....?

Quick's latest Behind the Locker Room write up after the Denver game revealed that Brandon, in spite of a massive rejections by fans, says that Yellow Mamba is here to stay.

How Portland is this!  He's basically saying, "Screw conventional wisdom.  I like it, so I'm doing it."  Sure, it doesn't roll off the tongue very well, pays homage to the most hated player in the NBA, and is based around a  fictional snake, but you know what?  If Brandon Roy likes it, I like it.

Think of it like an ironic mustache.  At first, it seems silly, but then it slowly becomes cool.  Let's get behind this Yellow Mamba thing, and take it from arguably the worst nickname imaginable to a household name.
