As many of you know, most of the great players in the NBA will develop a nickname...For example: Kobe Bryant (Kobe, Black Mamba), Lebron (King James, The Chosen One), Kevin Garnett (KG), Chris Paul (CP3), Deron Williams (Dwill), Ray Allen (Ray Ray), Paul Pierce (The truth), Dwight Howard (Superman), Kevin Durant (recently with Durantula), ETC. YOU GET THE DRIFT.

But then there are those great players in the NBA who do not get nicknames....
For example, John Stockton. I thought it would be cool to give nicknames to some of those great up and coming players in the league, who have not yet had nicknames....

Here are some names we can do, DO THIS LIST, and feel free to add to it others...ALSO CORRECT ME IF ANY OF THESE PLAYERS DO HAVE NICKNAMES THAT I AM UNAWARE OF.

Danny Granger?
Ranjon Rondo?
Eric Gordon?
Aaron Brooks?
Russell Westbrook?
O.J Mayo?
James Harden?
Stephen Curry?
Brandon Jennings?
Jeff Green?

(Again Feel free to add)

I dig all of those.. Love em.... Kid 'n Play is hella fitting.

I was thinkin Underdog for Westbrook...
( He is small and he is tough, a scraper, "no need to fear Underdog is here". alSO the kid could not dunk til his senior year in high school. He did not play Varsity until Junior Year, Sophomore year of high school he was 5 8' and slow, then went to UCLA and did not start ever, no one thought he would get draft in the lottery and he went #4, no one thought he could play point guard and he proved them wrong too.)

And players like Chris Paul and Chris Bosh should get new nicknames, I was never a fan of players with their initials and number as their nickname (CP3/CB4)
