Default 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.

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?

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"!

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.
