Well folks, the lockout is only a few days old and already I’m bored. So, here’s a little something to pass the time. <?xml:namespace prefix = o ns = "urn:schemas-microsoft-com:office:office" />
Yes, all great players need a great nickname whether it’s King James or the Black Mamba or even Shaq Diesel/Big Cactus. As far as I’ve heard, we don’t have a lot of great nicknames on the Blazers (especially now that "The Vanilla Gorilla, Joel Przybilla" and "Penderbeast" are no longer among us…) So I propose we come up with a few. I’d suggest that we aren’t likely to find much better than "Crash" or "Wes Money" but how about for Aldridge, Batum, Oden…Mills, Williams, even B-Roy could use an upgrade. And let’s not forget our new players either (though I really like "Jon Threebler" for the new kid).
Here are few good ones I’ve heard…any suggestions?
LMA: La-All-Star, L-Train
Oden: Old Man Oden…that’s about it
Mills: Patty Cakes
