    OK, we’ve got four we need to think about and crowd source. Personally, I’m sick of initial-based nicknames. It’s just a sign of our national decline. Give me something good.

    Gasoline Green (He’s on fire.)
    The Green Trampoline
    The Green Revolution
    The Green Dragon

    The Scimitar
    The Sultan of Pivotland
    Typhoon Sengun

    Usman the Bossman
    The Hammerin’ Spaniard
    The Watchtower (Nothing gets by him.)

    Josh “The Inquisitor” Christopher (He will torture you)
    Christopher Three (Surely someone besides me remembers Christopher Lee.)
    The Saint

    Yes, those all suck. I’m not a creative. Sue me. Do better.

    Anyone who says anything other than Turkish Delight for Sengun is trippin.

    And also, I second Thriller for Jalen Green.

    As the godfather representative, I've gotta call Alperen "Virgil" as in Virgil "The Turk" Sollozzo.

    JC already goes by Jaygup.

    For Alperen I'm going with the Whirling Dervish.

    JG is known as Unicorn, Money and Idol. I'm partial to Green Mamba & Legal Tender.

    That leaves Usman and I'm thinking El Coco given that nightmarish Spanish fairy tale. Opposing players are going to need to get their sleep the night before facing El Coco or he'll get you every time.
