So in the post on Amare's travels in Israel, we've come up with a few different possible nicknames for our new big guy based on his recent studies in Judaism. I'll present those options below, but I'd like to continue this train of thought (since absolutely nothing else is happening with the team right now) and come up with some amusing nicknames for the rest of our newest acquisitions. In the meantime, make sure to vote in the Amare nickname poll below.
Here are my additional nickname suggestions for the rest of the new players.
Raymond Felton: Scrappy Doo
Anthony Randolph: Loco Motive or Ganglystar
Kelenna Azubuike: Kazoo or The Barrister
Ronny Turiaf: Safariaf or Le Dauphin
Landry Fields: Gravy or Biscuits
Timofey Mozgov: TIMO or "Must See" as in "Must See Mozgov"
Let's hear more nickname suggestions (including Rautins and Jerome Jordan, who I didn't get to) and get some polls going for the other guys.
