    That sounds like a terrible 80's sitcom/buddy cop show.

    Compromise between "White Panther" and "Sex Falcon" ... Sex Panther.

    Rudy's jersey could have "Gay" over the top and under the number 22 should be added "not that there is anything wrong with that."

    I don't think there's anyone on our team right now that might garner a nickname. Guys get names because they're mentioned in the news a lot and are given a shorter moniker to refer them to. Others might have been infamous for something they did and get a name for that. I'm not sure that we have that right now. There might be some nicknames in the forums here because we're all fanboys, but realistically where you put something in and the general public (average fan) looks and says "Ha, that makes total sense."? I can't think of a single player on our team right now that would deserve that.
    your pal,

    Very true, but if the NBA does roll out and nickname jersey game (see the link in the OP), then every player is going to have something, whether it is earned or not. It's easy for LeBron, Wade and Bosh to have something earned, but even Dexter Pittman, Joel Anthony, and Norris Cole are going to have them. That absurdity is part of the entertainment value intended for this thread. I mean, Aaron Gray as "Sex Falcon" or "White Panther"? lol.

    From what I understand, the nickname jerseys are just going to be used for the Heat and the Nets. So we don't really need to come up with realistic ones, just hilarious ones

    Lowry - Captain KLOE
    Gay - Clutch (it's what we hope he can be)
    Derozan - DeRizen One (The Risen One sounds blasphemous but talking about his hops)
    Amir - 'Mir (he plays that mirror defense)
    Valanciunas - Valaciunasty
    Acy - Pocket Aces
    Novak - Trey (obvious reason)
    Hansborough - Psycho T
    Fields - Golden [fields]
    Gray - Gandolf
    Buycks - Tryke (short for tricycle)
    Augustin - DJ remix
    Daye - Light Knight

    In the style of Chris Berman....

    Rudy “Openly” Gay
    Demar “we are together, de happier we’ll be” Derozan
    Amir “I love pounding my” Johnson
    Watch “yo own ass” Valanciunas
    Acy “DC”
    Steve “the obligatory white guy who can hit wide open 3s when left wide open” Novak
    Tyler “don’t f**kin call me Psycho T” Hansbrough
    Landry “Mrs” or “Misses” Fields
    Aaron “White Charcoal” Gray
    Dwight “riding the pine and the stationary” Buycks
    DJ “EZ Rock” Augustin
    Austin “Never see the light of” Daye

    Oh but what if that is just the beginning? Yes, the plan is for 1 game with 2 teams, but can you really see any team not wanting to jump on that bandwagon (think of the jersey sales revenue from that 1 game). It may take years before the Raps are involved in such a game, but like the playoffs, we can always dream in the meantime.

    Shit, made my eyes water with some of those, good stuff. Seriously though, this is all well and good for commentary and a few laughs, but am I the only one that thinks putting nicknames on jerseys in reality is a stupid f#$%ing idea? I mean, for some guys that have been around awhile and are popular and well known around the league and already have nicknames, I can maybe understand, but what about the rest of the league? Are they just gonna make shit up just for the sake of it? This all seems rather amateur-ish to me for a league that is supposed to be sporting the best professional basketball players on Earth.
