What’s My Name?

Marc Gasol needs one.

Marc GasolMarc Gasol doesn’t appear to have the body of an NBA star, and big bro Pau was always the more highly touted player. Quiet as kept, though, MG is looking like he’ll be a big-time player for a long time. He and the up-and-coming Grizzlies are showing some staying power, so it’s time we get Marc a nickname to match his skills.

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