More Jamario Love - NBA.com
Dave McMenamin from NBA.com discusses who he'd invite for the T-Mobile Rookie Challenge and gives a little hype to Moon for the upcoming All-Star Weekend. :D

Remember, people, Moon was a near cut in Toronto during training camp and wasn't expected by anyone outside of maybe his mom and dad to come in and play as well as he's played this year. With that in mind, I've given up all his other nicknames (Super Jamario, Moon Man, Jamario Speedwagon, etc.) and am going to start calling him Odysseus Moon exclusively. It's classy, it's edgy, it's apropos and it reminds me of Bethlehem Shoals. You can't go wrong with a nickname that conjures up thoughts of FreeDarko's creator.

I was so inspired by the moniker that I designed a t-shirt to help it catch on

Nice. I like the shirt, although without "odysseus" word it would be perfect.

Jamario was also on NBA Access, and used in role play on PTI (Wilbon played Jamario, Kornheisser wondered who the hell he was and made fun of his name).
