Lakers guard Shannon Brown: Give me a nickname

The suggestions are coming in as fast as Shannon Brown on a fast break. And I want to make sure you're a part of it.

Coming off an impressive fourth-quarter performance in the Lakers' 118-107 victory Tuesday over the Milwaukee Bucks, Shannon Brown is asking his Twitter followers to come up with a nickname for him. With enthusiasm growing for Brown as the league's most improved player, surely some of you have some ideas. Share your nicknames for Brown in the comment threads below with some explanation. I'll be sure to send the results to Brown's Twitter feed and also show him some of the ideas once the Lakers return from their three-game trip.

LOL!!

Then again, when multiple players collapse on Kobe and/or Gasol every time they touch the ball, there are bound to be some wide open looks.

That's why Shannon will help spread the floor even more once defenses begin to defend against him; at that time, we'll see what he can do because if he improves his ball handling - and I believe he will - he'll be able to create opportunities to drive to the hole And 1. He moves pretty darn well without the ball and when he's underneath, it's usually an easy deuce. All eyes will be on Shannon; he's proving to be pretty consistent off of that bench.

@wes
I totally agree. He just just shutup, rehab, comeback and prove all of his doubters wrong. Instead, he has been gicing them more firepower.

He also should not feel to bad about getting dissed by Rhianna because she's allowed to have extremely high standards.

@all
Has to be UPS!!!!!!

"Jammin' Brown"
cause it rhymes with Shannon Brown!

No doubt that Shannon has taken that next step. His shooting won't keep up like this, but he's making great decisions, he's playing under control, he's not tentative, his ball handling and defense have improved and his confidence is through the roof! He's not trying to dunk everything either. No one talks about the fact that the Cavs selected him 1 spot ahead of Jordan Farmar in the 2006 draft and that Farmar got a longer deal with the Nets for twice what he's making. I think that motivated the kid. My "gripe" is that Mitch Kupchak might have blown a golden opportunity by signing him for too short a contract for too little money. This kid will earn a starting job somewhere next season for some real dough.

Or Jammin' Shannon.......... cause it rolls off the tongue better.

The man of the muscular wharves must be named as follows:

"Shannon "Astronaut" Brown"

or

"Shannon "Flying" Brown"

If Karl Malone is the "Mailman" Let's call Shannon Brown "Deliveryman"

Mr. Bench

OOOh! We should call Shannon "SPACE JAM" cause his skills are out of this world!!

Gotta be UPS

slammin shannon,

how about big air brown

I like Mickey Mouse Hands. Am I right? Am I right?

[dbdh]

Shan-WOW

how about "the Awesome Dunker"
or
"Shannon the Dannon yogurt eatin gettin calcium and protein in his bones and muscles for serious dunks Brown"

no?

ok

airmail brown

slammin shannon

slammin shannon,airmail brown

"Spartycus"

Wow. This is amazing. You guys really stepped up to the plate and came up with a cool list of names. I'm going to feature some of the suggestions in a post tomorrow and then show it to Shannon when the team gets back from its trip. I'm curious to see which ones he'll like

The Microwave 2, sounds good to me.
GO HEAT

This should win you RCOTD, this is spot on POINT.

Shannon WOW

I got it, but if someone can tighten it up a bit, cool:

N-JAD (sounds like "en-jad")

Stands for: "Not Just A Dunker"


Maybe MT. JAD is better? (more than just a dunker)

SLY

UPS is good but I propose "Brown Bomber" (in honor of Joe Louis) and the way he can drop those 3 point "bombs"!

Cannon

"Downtown Shannon Brown". is by far the best nickname for Shannon Brown

"Shantastic"

If he's handling the ball this well through December: Shanta-Claws

Downtown Shannon Brown (when he hits a 3) and Uptown Shannon Brown when he dunks.

And range from down town like a Cannon

Cannon Brown

For ex: Cannon Brown for another 3!!
Cannon Brown to the rim for another explosion!

Mark it

Print it

The "Dagger" - double edged, will kill either way(dunk or shoot three's). Used for close combat as a second weapon(perfect for a sixth man).

Shannon "Dagger" Brown

I love it! Go Lakers!!!

sixthest。

Shabreezy

shanaynay... LOL!!

“shanWOW” and "UPS"are cool
and how about "slam bomber"
In Chinese we call him"奶茶"(milk tea)

"Cannon Brown" does have a ring to it.


UPS or Downtown
Shannon UPS Brown
Because he delivered........and like guaranteed service.....

UPS - because Shannon does deliveries time after time

"The Human Trampoline" should be his new nickname

This guy can jump out the building! Shannon got trampoline legs!!!

I like Shantastic to! Thats cool...."Mr Shantastic" or "The Human Trampoline" is a go getter!!!! Choose it Shannon, choose it!

Can u imagine hearing the PA announcer shouting "that was Shannnnntastic!" when Shannon drain a big 3! or Oh my goodness! Shannon Brown "The Human Trampoline" just posterized & embarrassed The Big 3! of the Miami Heat/Boston Celtics...when he does one of his trampoline dunks....oh well just wishful thinking....

im not sure why he still isn't being called Shannon "The Cannon" Brown.

dablueberry's suggestion of SHART would be perfect. It sounds funny at first but if you think about it, its quite apt. How many times had he literally made you shart out of sheer excitement. For me at least 4 times so far this season. Shannon brown is composed of equal parts of NASTY AIR and THE SH!T. i believe that would be called a SHART.

I like "Showtime".

"Down Town " Shannon Brown..
Coz' he can throw it down like nobody's business plus he can hit it from down town..
It's got a nice ring to it, "Down Town" Shannon Brown..

I have two nicknames:

Shannon "The Cannon" Brown (he shoots and dunks like one) Or,
"The Garbage Man" (cause he comes in to clean up after the starters leave the floor). Ther's my two cents. Go Lakers! 3-peat!

Here's my suggestion for SHANNON BROWN's new nickname: MIP

That's right - call him the Mip! Like in . . . . "OMG! Coach Jackson just sent in the Mip!"

It stands for: Most Improved Player.

CANNON BROWN.

Downtown Brown


Cannon Brown

Shannon "THE CANNON" Brown

Work hard absorb all you can from Kobe!, I think just plain old SB would be very fitting, are THE FUTURE. Work hard, Play hard

Shannon the Cannon
Slam it down Brown
Knock it down Brown
Shut 'em down Brown

Mighty Mouse

i like:
-downtown shannon brown
-UPS...what can brown do for you?
-moneytrain...all aboard!

The only nickname I can come up with is Shannon "Sha-Boom" Brown.
I'll never forget that first impression he made on all of us! There he was just passed mid-court and turned the ball over. I could see he face turning red full of mixed emotions (mad, embarrassed, etc). As he trailed the play "Sha-Boom" he leaps into the air and blocks the shot with his elbow/forearm, his ELBOW for crying out loud!

Sha-boom!
The bench explodes! The crowd erupts! And families across southern California leap out of thier couches! (including me)

LAX would work including LA X-factor but the problem is on a bad day he'd be EX-LAX and the word lax is no good anyway.

UPS "What can Brown do for you?" it is.

Has to be "UPS"

For highlights:
What can Brown do for you?
UPS, he delivers!
See what Brown did for you?

For lowlights:
He mishandle that package (for turnovers)
Not enough postage (for missed shots)

UPS, you listening!?!


The B-12 Bomber

"Slingshot" Brown

The Catapult Kid

The Weather Maker...(sometimes thunder, sometimes rain, never nice, and always pain).

Shannon-Ball!!!

Spartacus

A warrior from Michigan State

"cash"


"cash" for a 3 .... it's good ....

I like that

Cash Brown

Human Trampoline
