    Nicknames are a funny thing. More often than not they come from a spur of the moment comment from an announcer and they stick, or or self-proclaimed a la Shaq. I'm not a huge fan or trying to incorporate his name into his nickname. I think some of the best have something to do with the way the player plays, or their appearance I.e. Air Jordan, 1/2 Man 1/2 Amazing, Magic. All that being said, my favourites I've heard are:

    Flight 31
    Northern Flights
    Tricky Rosay (albeit, this one is more for laughs)
    In light of this thought, how about "Stretch"... I was trying to find something focusing on how wiry he is, elastic man, but Stretch fits that and incorporates his 3 point shooting.

    I was just thinking, and didn't want to start a new thread for such a silly comment, but Chuck Hayes ought to be nicknamed Mr. Heavyfoot now that he's playing in Toronto.

    How about either TyrannosauRoss or Tyrann-'soar'-Ross (i.e. the act of soaring to dunk). Short form for that is TRoss anyways so maybe it's all redundant.
