After watching some Jonas highlights on youtube i found a cool nickname for Joans. J-Vicious. Im not that good at coming up with nicknames but I really liked this one. Anyone else got any nicknames for Jonas or any other raptors?
LOL im not sure that would work.

I got a crazy idea....let's call him Jonas
I remember the good ol' days when only established players deserved nicknames...

A few years ago it got really bad, to the point where I couldn't even watch the American broadcast on whichever network it was that showed the Sunday games, because every other player was "unbelievable" and had a nickname based on their initials and jersey #. I totally agree with you about actually earning a nickname. I hate how the NBA has gone out of its way to market the names on the back of the jersey moreso than the name on the front!
Love this picture, can someone make it into or part of a wallpaper?
All you have to do to remedy that situation is bring back the XFL style jerseys and allow them to put their nick names on the back. That way you'll never forget and feel outdated.
In all honestly, I got no problems with nicknames. I don't really know how you "earn" a nickname. The way I see it. if it's good it'll stick. I do know what you're saying about a few years back. My issue was how they weren't creative AT ALL.
Eh follow my TWITTER!
It's one thing when it's a nickname given by teammates, as usually it's a much shorter and quicker-to-say name, which is just easier to use during the course of the game. ie: it's way easier to say "Mo" or "Mo-P" or "Mo-Pete" instead of asking "Morris" to pass the ball...
I hate nicknames like CB4, AK47, CP3, etc... that's just initials + jersey number = nickname... wow, so creative and so meaningful! Sounds more like a marketing ploy to me.
AK47 is a fucking sick nickname tho. CB4 and CP3 are just kinda initials and jersey number big whoop, its like calling Bargnani AB7 or Derozan DD10. AK47 is one of the few nicknames that actually works well and sounds badass
Yeah AK47 is pretty sick. But I think names like CB4 come from the commentators trying to spice things up, so they aren't saying the same names all the time.. Can't really blame them
