What’s My Name?

Zaza Pachulia needs one.

This month’s target is Zaza Pachulia, who some may know for getting in Kevin Garnett’s face during the Playoffs, and others may recognize from CNN as he pleaded for peace in his native Georgia. Either way, the man deserves a nickname. Give us your suggestions.

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

    how about ZAZA BINKS http://www.starwars.com/databank/character/jarjarbinks/

    I mean just read JarJarBinks intro the similarities are uncanny.

    A clumsy, well-meaning Gungan outcast from his people on Naboo, Jar Jar Binks struggled to prove his worth throughout his life. Putting his awkward past behind him, Jar Jar left the swamps of Naboo to enter the even murkier waters of Coruscant politics, becoming a representative for his people in the galactic capital……

    when I first saw zazas entrance picture (http://www.rotoevil.com/images/zaza_pachulia_gangsta.jpg) I couldn’t remember who he reminds me of..but alas, I remembered (http://www.imdb.com/media/rm2630850816/tt0086250) therefore my suggestion is “Sonny”
    and also, pacino and pachulia is waaay too similar….
