Every year on our old website we had an annual tradition where we would offer up Jerry Reynolds some suggested nicknames for players. Some of those nicknames, like “The Brockness Monster” or “The Great Rudini” became mainstays and it was always fun to hear those nicknames on air.
Jerry isn’t calling games anymore, but Doug Christie has taken up the mantle and added his own flair. So in the spirit of continuing tradition, let’s see what nicknames or sayings we can come up with for our new Kings, as well as new nicknames for existing players if you’d like.
And hey, even though Jerry isn’t calling games anymore, he is a co-host on a wonderful new podcast you may have heard about, and maybe we can get him to read some of the best suggestions offered here.
This year we’ve got plenty of new faces to create nicknames for. Tyrese Haliburton, Robert Woodard II, Jahmi’us Ramsey, Glenn Robinson III, and Hassan Whiteside all could use some nickname love, but of course you can also submit suggestions for returning players as well.
Let’s see what you’ve got!
