What’s My Name?

by July 18, 2007

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, we’ll 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 Deron Williams. He’s already been slapped with the dreaded and generic “DWill.” As the breakout star of the Playoffs, he needs something more suitable for one of the best young players in the game. Give us your suggestions for a worthy nickname for Deron.

See Trash Talk in the September issue to see whose nickname we choose as the winner.
