It appears that this young crew needs some awesome nicknames. Even some of the veterans still need a good handle. (L-A... seriously? That's the best we got?) Here is what I think a good nickname should include, feel free to give your own ideas. I haven't given it too much thought.
- A good nickname should be able to flow easily with at least part of their real name.
- A good nickname should match their playing style and demeanor.
- A good nickname should be able to be said in the excited tones of an announcer calling the plays we want to see.
- A good nickname should be liked by the player (of course, we can't say much about this unless we hear their opinion).
Any good nickname ideas out there for the current blazer roster? Don't bother with the sarcastic nicknames for players you don't like or players that have moved on. Lillard especially needs a good handle, before "Dame" settles. Once we get enough ideas, perhaps we will run some polls.
