What’s My Name?

Kevin Durant needs one.

Kevin DurantWe asked Kevin Durant himself if he has any nicknames, and all he could come up with is “KSmoove.” It’s absurdities like that which got us into the nickname business in the first place. Here’s a player with as much pure offensive talent as anyone to come into the League this millennium, as he showed most recently in the Rookie-Sophomore Game. Obviously, this guy needs a nickname that honors his abilities—and he’s on record as asking us for one. Kevin needs your help.

Whoever has the best nickname will win a dope prize from the SLAM vault and get their name in Trash Talk next month.

  • gregory uba

    since you yourselves at SLAM speak of his offensive attributes, i think we stay with that adjective and think of what is offensive: and so i suggest:
    the BIG STANK
    or, to include a twist on the k-smoove moniker:
    K-RUDE

    with both stanky and rude being offensive enough yet still fit for public consumption

    K3D5 (like R2D2) because he plays like he was programmed to do it, or Kaptain Kevin, since he always does the Salute after he scores.

  • Einar Hansberg

    Because of his offensive skills and how he has been playin (scoring) this season and his skinny frame. I think “The lean machine” would fit him.

And “Special K…coz he is the cereal to milk” – what does that even mean?? And with “Chocolate Thunder” – what happens if DURACELL gets traded or resigns?? The Chocolate Bobcat? The Chocolate Piston? The Chocolate Rocket?

  • K-Dawggg

    The guys over on NBA TV have already deemed him “Baby Ice” after his game which resembles the Ice Man George Gervin. But if I had to think of something “Lightning” would seem appropriate as you hear thunder only after lightning strikes! Durantula is terrilbe though, nobody should call an NBA player that.

  • K-Dawggg

    Or “the Rainman”, since thunder only happens when it’s raining and players only love you when they are playing. Sorry, I had to get all Fleetwood Mac on you here at Slamonline.
