I feel bad for players who get saddled with lousy nicknames. Or players who get stuck with one joke about their haircut that gets repeated a million times by lazy writers who can't think of anything better. I cringe whenever I hear Nowitzki (seven-time all-star, league MVP, franchise player) referred to as "Dirk Diggler." Good one! Calling Kyle Korver by the name of the doofus actor from "That 70s Show" is so old that even pointing out that it's old is at this point old.
Complaining about bad nicknames is old too, I guess. But damn it, the Garbage Time All-Stars are gonna crank up the old Name-Forge of Destiny from time to time and see if we can't come up with something a little better for the unique stars of the NBA. Keep an eye on our minty-fresh art blog for further nickname outbreaks.

C-Webb has yet to play his first game for the Warriors, so we don't know how it's going to work yet. There's a real last stand in the Wild West feeling to it. I had the healthy skepticism about Webber's evil knees with the run-n-gun W's when he signed, but this Shaq business really upped the ante. Webber to the Warriors seems completely reasonable by comparison. But I hope things turn out well for ol' C-Webb. I'm rooting for him.
We've also done started a b-ball art blog. Mark and I kicked it off with some love for Golden State's bearded cannonball Baron Davis. Enjoy!
