Nervous Purvis, gotta admit it has a ring. L'ville had a player called Never Nervous Purvis and he won a ring. Anyhow, after reading all the articles about the Southern game, it has the makings of a nickname.

The sky isn't falling Chicken Little.

People were saying negative stuff about Shabazz in the summer league, but look who's playing the entire 4th quarter before his 5th game as a pro.

It's a nickname. That's what guys do. If a guy has his right hand cut of, his friends call him lefty. If a guy has a big nose, his friends call him nose or honker or the snozz.

It's not an insult, it's a nickname. You guys are sooo sensitive, what are are --GIRLS!

Drama Queen Palatine, gotta admit it has a ring. The ancient Romans had palatines that helped found Rome and establish western civilization. Anyhow, after reading this board for some 15 years, during which you have never had an unexpressed negative thought about any UConn team, coach or player, it has the makings of a nickname.

I think that's the problem, you're not his friend. Not to pile on, but this was an odd post after one exhibition game.

This kid is going to be rolling soon. I will call him Rapping Rodney. Don't mean a thing. Or Hot Rod.

I really like Drama Queen Palatine.

It is a nickname. It also happens to be somebody ELSE'S nickname.

We aren't going to call SCJ "Sam I Am" either.

You don't get to pick your own nickname. BTW, Sam I Am is pretty good.

Joe D called Terry Caulley Mighty Mouse.
Sticks was embraced by everyone, but I'm sure that Stanley didn't make it up himself.

I think we should nickname the entire team.

"Sam II Am" I'm banging away at that nickname until it sticks.

Eh, we tried to make "Neo" happen for Rashad (Mr. Anderson, the one, etc.), but that never took hold either. If it makes the unwashed masses pause for more than a second to think about it , it's probably doomed (but that would be a good thing, no?)

Rashad was far too colorful for a Matrix-reference, and the fake-knife incident locked in the much more appropriate "Slash."

This should easily be his nickname. It's awesome.

Neo is 10 levels beyond terrible, so thank god it didn't stick.

Rashad's nickname was Microwave.

Back to the topic at hand, Nervous Purvis sounds like the exact opposite of the kind of guy Purv is. He's a bull.

I'd nick him 'Ferrari' if the name didn't suck so bad. That said, when he does something big this year, you better believe I'm dropping the "Ferrari out the garage! Ferrari out the garage!!"
