    My favourite Raptors nickname of all time was “The Big Smooth” for Charlie Villanueva, dude was tall, totally hairless and for that one season had a very smooth looking game

    I also think it’s hard not to put “Air Canada” on the list, I hate Vince now as much as the next guy, but that’s a sweet nick for a guy who could play above the rim like that…

    Side note: Bargnani’s nick “Il Mago” is for his ability to disappear for large stretches of a game

    Seen Will Lou use the Trey Rozay nickname. Shout out to you guys.
    No teen wolf reference? Nobody could stop Michael J Fox.

      It’s catching on, just like Gravy Vasquez (because everything you get is gravy from him). Amirite?

    Movie notes:

    Kevin Hart for Muggsy Bogues

    Bill Murray for Kevin O’neil

    Sam Jackson for Oakley, just add the pulp fro

    And for a nickname for Jonas could be Val Kilmor, in honor of his crazy and the great actor. Who happens to play some crazy roles

    Garnett is crazy. Metta World Peace is crazy. No one believes that Valanciunas is even borderline crazy – I wish he were. Alas, he is no beast.
