Too many of today’s NBA ballers lack a memorable tag. We at SLAM find this unacceptable; now we’re doing something about it. Each month in this spot, we bring you a player whose skills demand something more memorable and descriptive than their initials or a shortened version of their name—and that’s where you come in. This month, your target is Brandon Roy. He has been named Rookie of the Year or R.O.Y. Roy for R.O.Y., get it? Well, he doesn’t need to be called that or B-Roy for the next decade plus. Give us your suggestions for a worthy nickname for Brandon.
See Trash Talk in the August issue to see whose nickname we choose as the winner.
