    I’d love that song playing in the background when they introduce the starting lineups at Toyota Center(especially if Sengun is an eventual starter).

    Plus I think Tilman would appreciate that track, as a restauranteur. I doubt any of Tilman’s restaurants have anything on that lady’s home cookin’ though. ;)

    I don’t know if this has been mention already yet but he already has a nickname from Turkey, he is known as the Black Eagle. Not entirely sure what the backstory for that is, @Sengun can you fill us in? Anyways I like it. It’s fitting because



    in this interview he personifies Mamba mentality. But the Black Mamba is sacred and taken, so we have the Black Eagle. FWIW eagles eat snakes.

    The nickname of Beşiktaş club is "Black Eagles". The fans call to all players in every branch as a "Black Eagle". In Turkey, not every athlete is taken a special nickname, as in the US. So, "Black Eagle" is not special nickname for Sengun. Of course it can be but I thought different about it. Actually, I would call him as "Bull of the Bosphorus" but this nickname was taken by a Turkish boxer before. Still, I'm thinking about it and trying find something.

    Sengun seems to have a sufi mystic vibe about him. Talks about instinct and feeling a lot, has a humbleness to him that seems to correspond to a respect for what he can't control. Being friends with the ball, talking to it. Dude's magic.

    I need a clarification. I've heard Sengun pronounced sometimes with an S at the beginning, but sometimes with a "Sh." Which is it? Need this info to generate nickname ideas.

    (Update: My wife has brought out her Turkish phrase book, which turns out not to be a Monty Python sketch. The S with a squiggle is indeed a “sh.”)
