What’s My Name?

J.R. Smith needs one.

This month, your subject is J.R. Smith. After coming off the bench for the past 130 games as Denver’s sixth man, Smith may be starting as the Nuggets’ de facto PG. If the high-flyer adds distributing skills to his diverse toolkit, Smith may become a star. This progression calls for a nickname.

As always, whoever has the best nickname will win a dope prize and get their name in Trash Talk next month.

    We in Denver know this guy as the most althetically gifted player, especially when dunking, since Skywalker. So how about “Junior Sywalker” or “Jr. Skywalker” since it matches his initials better. But I am down with JRS-One too, that’s way original, but at the same time we all know how old initials and numbers are getting for knicknames these days.
