We don't know quite what to say about this column by CBSSports.com's Alex Dassenko where he proposes a nickname for Rasheed Sulaimon: "Sulaimon the Magnificent."
First of all, not to be unkind, but that's a heavy nickname to live up to. We have no doubt he can excel - he did quite often last year - but not as much this year, so far anyway.
Generally speaking, nicknames come from either admiration, a trait, a particular niche or a play on a name. Take the nickname which launched from DBR for Trajan Langdon - the Alaskan Assassin. It was perfect for a guy who could blow up a game from three point range.
So, too, for the Zoubeard for Zoubek or C-Well for Chris Carrawell and the Landlord for Shelden Williams.
For Sulaimon, his niche so far has mostly been defense, which seems like the best place to start.
