    He first introduced Lin as the "Chinese Sensation," then corrected himself. Not sure what he said in Chinese after that.

    Omer Asik = Rocky
    Aaron Brooks = The Pigeon Toe
    Jeremy Lin = Asian Sensation
    Omri Casspi = Mr. Military Himself, The Saudi Arabian Prince
    Chandler Parsons = The Prettiest Boy in Houston
    Donatas Motiejunas = White Version of Hakeem Olajuwon
    Ronnie Brewer = Acorn
    Isaiah Canaan = Sip, Stefan Urquelle from Family Matters (reference)
    Francisco Garcia = Peoples from Shaft
    Reggie Williams = Reginald (no creativity means he's gone)
    Patrick Beverley = Trinidad James
    Greg Smith = Biggest Gummy Bear in Texas
    Rob Covington = The Dance Machine
    James Harden = One of the best Street Fighters of All-Time, The Man who parted the Red Sea. Kimbo Slice, aka Moses, aka BA Barackus

    Then Patrick Beverley revealed the nicknames for Dwight Howard:

    Beetlejuice, aka Montel Williams, aka Head and Shoulders

    Ironically Casspi is Israeli not Saudi Arabian (they kinda hate each other).

    He probably should brush up on geography and Middle East politics.

    He won't be on the team tomorrow so why waste a nickname?

    His nickname should be waivers.

    Basketball players aren't the smartest bunch. Dwight needs to check up on his Mideast relations and Chinese isn't Asian.

    Sounded like he was trying to say ni hao maybe?

    "The Pigeon Toe" was Aaron Brooks, not Beverley. I'm guessing it's from his shooting motion... if I remember right, his feet come in when he plants to shoot.

    Dwight's kind of awkward when he tries to be funny.

    I saw a clip where when he was signing his contract and meeting Les Alexander in the signing room, he loudly exclaimed "You're so short!!" before hugging him. LOL.

    How dare Dwight compare D-Mo to Hakeem. He should be waived on that alone IMO.
