I haven't had this much draft fun since 2006. We are in a possition to get at least two high quality players that will immediately be assumed as future HOFers! I've spent so much time reading everything I can get about these kids that I almost feel qualified to run this draft (aside from the whole experience thing). It's gotten so bad I'm actually dreaming about the draft now. You'll all be happy to know that Lillard becomes ROY 2.0 and becomes the true triple-threat player we need to maximize the other players on the floor. I dreamed it, so it must be true.
In an effort to ease back on the draft stuff, I thought it would be nice to get a jump on the nicknames. We need to put in the time to come up with something creative. We can't have another BRoy or LMA. This is Blazer's Edge! We need something spicy, catchy, gritty, shock & awe-like. Here's my feeble attempt. I look forward to seeing BEs creativity.
Robinson- The Accountant: "Numbers don't lie"
Beal- Alley Mick (stupid, I know)
MKG- Hemi: He's all motor.
Drummond- The Pinto? It seemed like a good idea at the time. Who knew it would flame out like that?
Lillard- Cold Fussion (It sounded neat). OR: Great Dame! OR simply "DAAAAAAAAMMME!"
Barnes- I got nothin'.
Henson: Stretch Armstrong (lame)
Rivers: The Black Hole (too accurate) OR Basketball Graveyard (same thing?)
Waiters: Red Bull
Lamb: No Doze
Marshall: AAA (Always there for the assist)
