Seems like NBA contenders past and present have/had players with cool nicknames which did not include shortening their given names. With that said, I just thought that with this very long off-season,we can give our own contender cool nicknames as well. If you're in the mood, maybe you can throw in a song or something we can associate with certain players as well. Currently, our roster looks like this:
Hill, Lance, Paul, West and Roy as starters.
Bench players are Watson, OJ, Danny, Copeland, Ian, Miles, Sloan, Green and Solo.
OJ is affectionately called Pulp by some. Ian, big dapper and Solo, King (courtesy of infinity). Our starters though don't have one. Even Danny who has been with the Pacers the longest among this group is still nick-nameless.
So put on your thinking caps and help bored stiffs like yours truly (who needs to have his daily IndyCornrows fix to get by) while away the long basketball lay-off.
