    Rare to see a dude deserve a nickname so early in his career, but the man is a beast.

    These are the two names ive heard thrown around the most.

    For me it's an easy pick, what do you think?

    Can't go wrong with Air or Missile.

    He'll be like Deion Sanders and have two main ones.

    Air Yordan is my preference. Just sounds much better, and more marketable IMO.

    The broadcasters are trying REALLY hard to make one of these stick. The only one that hasn't felt like a Bill Worrell cringe special was Air Yordan, IMO.

    I like Air Yordan. That's the one that I think should stick.
