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 Gerald Wallace. He’s an explosive dunker, a shot blocker, a tough defender and he put up big numbers in the second half of the season. GW is rarely on national TV, but a good nickname could help his exposure. Give us your suggestions.
Check Trash Talk in the August issue to see whose nickname we choose as the winner.
