What’s My Name?

Elton Brand needs a nickname

Too many of today’s players lack a memorable tag. We at SLAM find this unacceptable; now we’re doing something about it. Each month, we bring you a player whose skills demand something more memorable than a shortened version of their name—and that’s where you come in.

This month, your target is Elton Brand. Elton is not one for self-promotion; he just goes for 20 and 10 on the regular with some blocks thrown in for good measure. Now he needs a decent nickname to match the substance. Go to slamonline.com/contests/ and give us your suggestions for a worthy nickname for Elton. Whoever comes up with the best nickname will be blessed with a dope prize from our vault and their name in Trash Talk next month

    .Eazy Breazy slam cover 109 boy
    .Shot beltin’ Elton
    .Mr. 20/10
    .The 20/10 Brand
    .Brandy
    .Elton “The Boogeybran” Brand

    Elton Brand’s nick name should be “EASY E”. Often an automatic double double, he is very fundamentally sound. His style of play makes his ability seemingly effortless, although obviously very effective – hence “EASY E”
