There's not too much going on in the land of the Timberwolves, so may I introduce you to a nickname edition article of the Minnesota Timberwolves.

I would like for the fans to get involved in nicknaming our roster. I will submit my own suggestions, but it ultimately comes down to a joint discussion and agreement with readers.



Al Jefferson—Big Al (current nickname), the Postman, Big Passion, Low-Post, SSJ (super saiyan Jefferson—I'm a big DBZ fan).

Kevin Love—Sir Lovell, the Loveliest (I love that), Big Love (Big Al and Big Love?), Big Guard

Jonny Flynn—Jonah Flynn, Jonny Bravo, the Precise

Wayne Ellington—The Threepeat, Can't Believe It's Not Butter, Spot-Up, Wane Bullets

Ryan Gomes—Sir Ryan, Providence Gomes,

Corey Brewer—What's Brewin, Core Lock, E Core Squared (that sounds good)

Ramon Sessions—Raman Castilla, Professor Sessions (I love that), Attention Students

Sasha Pavlovic—Sir Bias, The Conglomerate

Ryan Hollins—Longevity, Center of Gravity, Putback, the Big Robust


I know some of them are corny, so that's why I would like some feedback and suggestions.

Thanks for reading!
