What’s My Name?

Andrew Bogut needs one.

Andrew BogutIf you blinked, you probably missed the Bucks’ catapult into the thick of the Playoff race. Credit is due to rookie phenom Brandon Jennings running the show and the recent arrival of John Salmons, but don’t be fooled: Andrew Bogut held down the 5 spot the entire time, and thanks to an AB-anchored 20-6 run, the Bucks are now fifth in the East. The Bucks are now in a bind without the former Ute‘s stellar play. Still, a fantastic season more than calls for a good nickname to be bestowed on him.

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

    I think Bogut’s nickname should be something that reflects his Australian roots and his playing style – not his current NBA team. Sure, he’s been with Milwaukee since he was drafted, but if he ever changes teams then any Bucks-related nickname is lost.

    Therefore, his nickname = “The Wallabeast”.

    Bogey: Similar to his last name, something simple but still a fun nickname that sticks to his own name.
