What’s My Name?

DeShawn Stevenson needs to know.

Too many of today’s players lack a memorable tag. We at SLAM find this unacceptable; now we’re doing something about it. Each month, we bring you a player whose skills demand something more memorable than a shortened version of their name—and that’s where you come in.
This month, your subject is DeShawn Stevenson. His teammate Gilbert Arenas gets the headlines in Chocolate City, but DeShawn has become a solid player himself. And if Agent Zero can have 10 nicknames, doesn’t Stevenson deserve at least one?

Whoever comes up with the best nickname will be blessed with a dope prize from our vault and get their name in Trash Talk next month.

    I was on my way to class and the perfect nickname came to me. I was going to write “Tat2″ but Bubba Chuck beat me to it. My vote goes to Bubba Chuck. I like to think great minds think alike. Not only that but he is also the second entry so it goes along with the number “2″ as well.
