A Summary Of My Thoughts

I seems like forever since I have taken the time to write for this website.  Let's just run through the numerous posts I have been doing for our old friend, Brian Geltzeiler over at Hoopscritic

The NBA is in its early stages of the season. Many people are in their over reaction phase and I felt like now is a good time to write up a nice article that really has nothing to with X’s & O’s but with the nicknames of the players around the league. I took the nicknames from Basketball-Reference as a guide. They were missing some like Pyscho-T (which they later fixed after my tweet). Let’s have some fun, take a look and discuss the nicknames of the players on each team.

Denver Nuggets
Arron Agustin Afflalo (Spell Check)
Nathaniel Cornelius Robinson (KryptoNate)
Danilo Gallinari (Il Gallo, The Rooster)
Kenneth Bernard Faried (Manimal)
Wilson Jamall Chandler (brother from depaul – Spike Lee)

First off, Spell Check is probably the funniest nickname ever for someone who spells Aaron with two R’s and only one A. The Nuggets also have some classics like The Rooster (Gallinari) and Manimal (Faried). KryptoNate is okay but it plays off of Dwight Howard’s (aka Shaq’s) nickname. Can’t have the Kryptonate without Superman. One blaring miss of a nickname was Wilson Chandler, The Brother From DePaul. If you watched the 2007 NBA draft then you know about ESPN asking Spike Lee who the Knicks were going to take, and I paraphrase, “I hear they are going to take the brother from DePaul.” My friends and I died in laughter and since have called Wilson, The Brother from DePaul...

Recapping the Season After One Week

The Mavericks Are For Real

Only a few people saw this coming and I wasn’t one of them until I spoke to Moke Hamilton from Basketball Insiders on my podcast, NBA Unplugged. Charles Barkley also said not to sleep on the Mavericks this year. They could be a title contender.
