The Results Are In….Nick Young’s New Nickname

Updated: December 15, 2007

Ok, so Mr. Irrelevant hasn’t exactly announced the “official” results of the Nick Young nickname vote as of yet. But sources inform Truth About It that most of the precincts have reported, so it’s only a matter of time until Bean Burrito is officially declared the winner.

Why Bean Burrito? Well, it’s what Nick, himself, wanted. Maybe we can call him “BB” or “BBNY” for short. In any case, the timing could not be better (or worse) depending on how you look at it.

Finding out that Antonio Daniels would be out for 2-4 weeks this morning did not sit well on my stomach. His play while Gilbert Arenas is on the sidelines has been vastly unheralded. And unfortunately, I think his being out will lead us all to realize this.

Of course, all over Wizards Insider...they’re hitting the panic button (they being those on the comment board). Thing is, look how this team has dealt with adversity so far. I see no reason as to why the players would get down about the injury to AD. Is it ideal? Well, what do you think? But the Wizards are a tough team and they will continue to be tough.

But anyway….back to Nick Young. His minutes are going to increase and he will need to step it up in all aspects, not just scoring. And as far as I’m concerned, he can’t do all this without a nickname. So Nick, from Truth About It to you……welcome.

Nick Young Nickname - Bean Burrito

Of course, since the current numbers on voting go as follows: Bean Burrito – 32%; The City – 29%; Young Hollywood – 21%; Skywalker – 8%; Little Zero – 4%……there is a possibility that we could be dealing with the situation below.

    I tell you what, if Roger Mason keeps shooting like he did tonight, we’ll be in for a long 2-4 weeks w/o AD.

    If you’re talking about the Sacramento Kings game, then I might have to disagree.

    Yea, Mason went 1-5 from 3 point land, not good, but he was 6-12 overall and made his first 4 shots to get the Wizards going after Nick Young got in early foul trouble, scoring 8 total in the 1st quarter.

    Of course, I’d like to see him improve on 43.5% from the field for the season (although, 35.7% from 3 isn’t that bad).

    One thing I’ve noticed about Mason Junior is his willingness to take it to the basket to create for others, lately when we’ve have needed him to do so. He also knows how to make good, smart cuts in the Princeton offense.
