It's gonna be a loooong summer. The Dog Days are upon us, and there's not a lot of hoops news to talk about. So I thought we might entertain ourselves a bit in the meantime. And what better way to do that than with player anagrams. After all, there's nothing like a little wordplay to lighten the mood.
Taking advantage of a couple of on-line "anagram engines" I came up with rearranged names for all of the current Kings (including Brockman, even though he is unsigned at the moment). I tried to stick to anagrams that were somehow remotely relevant. For example, "Francisco Garcia" can be rearranged to give you "Cigar Narc Fiasco", which I happen to like, but it has nothing at all to do with the man or his game. (Actually it has nothing to do with anything.) My only other comment is that I sometimes use the letter "I" as a Roman numeral 1, so bear that in mind.
And now, without further ado, please welcome your Sacramento Kings:
Jon Brockman >>> Born Jock Man
Omri Casspi >>> Mosaic Rips
Tyreke Evans >>> Very Knastee (the "K" is silent)
Francisco Garcia >>> Sac Arc Infra-Cog I
Donte Greene >>> Ogre Need Net (sort of like "He Got Game")
Spencer Hawes >>> Napes Chewer(s) (you know, Napes, as in Peaches)
Kevin Martin >>> Airmen TV Kin
Sean May >>> Easy Man
Andres Nocioni >>> Senor And-I Icon
Sergio Rodriguez >>> Zorro-Serge, I Dig U
Kenny Thomas >>> Money Thanks! (it's a pun)
Jason Thompson >>> Nonstop Jam Sho
Beno Udrih >>> Our Behind
