FINALS DeRozan Nicknames Pt. 2

Ok, I know that most of the last batch of nicknames sucked but it was a good start and gave us some decent suggestions. Here's part 2 with the highest vote-getters and best suggestions....


PS - Please quit with the crap about "DeMar DeRozan" being cool enough so he doesn't need a nickname. Start your own thread about how cool his name is and see how much discussion you get. This is simply entertainment for those, like me, who are starting to feel deprived of basketball and want something NBA-related to discuss.

D-Rex had the most votes earlier - cool name cuz of the dino connection (even though its not a Raptor).
Ice-D is pretty straight-forward; catchy though.
I like "Comp10" cuz it sounds like Compton (where's he from) and could mean he can comp u 10 pts and still kick ur ass.
"No Props Needed" is in reference to the dunk contest, but can apply to any sic play he's a part of.
Def-Jam is probably my favorite at this point - props to carp for the suggestion.
I like how "the Nightmare", "the Reason", and "The Real Deal" all sound with his name. "Nightmare" and "Real Deal" are self-explanatory, "Reason" means he's the reason we win or lose, either way its on him (somethin lots of stars have alluded to - they win, they get the credit; they lose, they get the blame).
"Dynamite" probably suits him the best (calm demeanor but very explosive) but isn't as catchy as some of the others.
"Flight 10" is here just so Matt Devlin can say "Flight 10 to the rack!" or "Flight 10 takes off for the jam!" every time he dunks (I'm sure we won't get sick of that lol).

I left off "Heir Canada", even though it was getting lots of votes in the last poll. We need to find DeMar a new nickname, not find out how much everyone used to like Vince's.

No Props Needed, although over-used by Matt Devlin, is probably the best nickname for DeRozan for years to come.

I love Ice-D, Def-Jam, but I guess "it's gotta be delivery" didn't make it! Leo was all queued up with that one!

By the way, good job initiating a positive thread in a dull summer of basketball! Props.

A second thread for a nickname? Yep, we're in the middle of the summer + a lockout.

What about DDR? or in the same vein, Revolution or something like that.

As for the ones up there, I think he's already called himself the Comp10 Kid.
