When you have a name like Rajon Rondo or John Wall or Derrick Rose, you don't really need a nickname because your last name is good enough.

Russell Westbrook needs a nickname though.

No, these are the actual stuff.

"Run Killer"

by our broadcaster Neil Funk. Rose has this atleast once a day - every time a team makes a run (6-0, 8-0 run), Rose usually answers it and kills that momentum by scoring his own 4-6 points. Thus our announcer gave him a nick name called "Run Killer"

"Too Big, Too Strong, Too Fast, Too Good"

That's a very amazing line. That also given by one of our broadcaster named Stacy King. That also happens atleast once a game where Rose would cross over someone, goes to the hoop strong and usually gets and 1 or dunks it.

"Fast Don't Lie"

Everyone uses this when they show Rose's highlights from ESPN, to NBA-TV to TNT to our own fans, to Adidas to all the fans.


"Poohdini"

Is his own Tattoo. He has the tattoo of Poohdini and his nick name growing up was Pooh.


Now those others Unicorn and GodSend (when he was drafted) were given by his fans from all the boards (not just PSD).
