Poll: DeRozan Nicknames
 
Hey guys, figured I'd start this poll in response to foreverice's thread about finding DeMar a nickname. The following suggestions are mostly from that thread, plus a few I added. Time to pick your favorite....

(feel free to make more suggestions)

I like "The Drive", both for his work ethic and cuz he's at his best when he's attacking the basket (also where I got "Slash" from).
D-Rex is good cuz of the dino connection (although not a Raptor but whatever).
"Comp10" is cool cuz it sounds like Compton (where's he from) and could mean he can comp u 10 pts and still kick ur ass.
If he was known for defense then D-Up would be sic. As it is, maybe it's 1 of those ironic nicknames (although he can jump so it still fits somewhat).
The "X" in "DDX" represents the roman numeral for 10.
I put the "(DeM)" before "Air DeRozan" to let u decide, pick either "DeM-Air DeRozan" or "Air DeRozan".

D-up for a guy that doesn't know how to play D?

Out of those choices I'd go with D-Rex I guess.

m5racer 07-24-2011 04:45 PM

I have to admit.....those all pretty much suck :cookie:

canada_rocks2369 07-24-2011 04:51 PM

ya im inclined to agree, if there was a good 1 out there i suppose we'd all be callin him by it already lol

canada_rocks2369 07-24-2011 04:52 PM

ya jeff i was already makin that point as well, just givin u guys options
all the good ones are taken ("Air", "Dream", "Truth", "Answer", etc). Plus, not enough about DeMar's game stands out enough to make a nickname out of, and there's nuthin obvious to go with his name ala "King" James.
how bout Baba Booey? he could use that one right?

canada_rocks2369 07-24-2011 05:13 PM

how bout "Dynamite" or "the Dynamite"? (calm till he explodes to the basket lol - im tryin here)

or DeMar "Da Bomb" DeRozan

or DeMar "Do Damage" DeRozan

Ammo 07-24-2011 05:42 PM

Flight.

carp 07-24-2011 06:06 PM

Emar seems to be the most sensible so far.

Or Demar 'it's gotta be delivery' DeRozan... then Leo can chime in with 'no it's Delissio"!

Chiggmo 07-24-2011 06:09 PM

Shouldn't it be DeReason? I still like 'it's gotta be delivery' but the more I think about it, it should be Demar 'it's godda be delivery' DeRozan.

canada_rocks2369 07-24-2011 09:18 PM

or we can try rhyming lol:

DeMar "the Star" DeRozan
DeMar "the Jaguar" DeRozan
DeMar "the Bar" DeRozan
DeMar "the Czar" DeRozan
DeMar "the Crowbar" DeRozan
DeMar "Under Par" DeRozan
DeMar "Open Bar" DeRozan

halphbreedballer 07-24-2011 09:43 PM

I'm a fan of no Nick name but I do like the No Props needed line.

carp 07-24-2011 09:58 PM

I like Demar 'The magician's assistant' DeRozan.

or Demar 'the apprentice' DeRozan.... queue Leo's response: You're fired [insert posterized player]!

DonMughal 07-24-2011 10:16 PM
