In an annual tradition dating back to our Sactown Royalty days, we always have an annual nickname thread. Back in the day these were geared towards Jerry Reynolds, and several of them such as The Brockness Monster and The Great Rudini found their way onto the broadcasts.
Jerry retired a few years ago and now has a wonderful podcast right here with the Kings Herald. We didn’t hear any of our nicknames from last year get used by Mark Jones, Kyle Draper or Kayte Christensen. Nonetheless, we want to be prepared should they ever come around here looking for ideas.
The Kings have a number of new faces on the roster this year. What nicknames and Jerryisms can we come up with for Sasha Vezenkov, Chris Duarte, Colby Jones, Jalen Slawson, Jordan Ford, and JaVale McGee?
So let’s see what you’ve got. Let’s hear your best nickname suggestions for any of the new or the returning players!
