  • I'm a Paul Heyman guy.
I am an avid listener of The Basketball Jones podcast (i think I already said this before) and while I was tuned in, they had a mail in which the guy asked what names can they think of that can be catchy replacements for common adjectives or verbs or nouns that we use in everyday life.

He had examples like "Yo, can I get a Stockton (assist) on this table" and "You know that your current GF is just a Rodman (rebound) right?"

So, like I always say, for the sake of fun, creativity and discussion, let's hear yours. We might be able to use it with fellow basketball fans in our everyday living and may look cool doing so...  ;D 8)

I have one.

"Make sure you Kwame (scrub) that floor really good."

Fire away. The witty ones will get TP's from me.
