    Can we all agree NOT to call him "Sky".

    Weakest nickname ever.

    Every tall guy named "Walker" gets that tired moniker......as every white guy named Jake is "the snake".

    No nickname would be fine, or a cool clever one, but not "Sky", we're better than that.

    Oh, and my favorite nickname ever? That's easy. From Orlando Evans......Chocolate Thunder.

    Does he have a nickname he likes?

    If he likes Sky Walker, it's good enough for me. If he thinks it's tired, like the OP does, I'm with the OP.

    I agree that sky walker is overused, but let's see the guy play a little first.

    I heard the phrase "release the kraken" when the news broke he could play...maybe "the kraken" is a good nickname as I have never heard of another player referred by that.

    I agree on the Skywalker thing. It has been used a lot and it was OK when Kenny Sky Walker had it because I think he was the first to have it. But it is so over played now.

    I too am not into inflicting people with nicknames. The best nicknames are the ones that happen naturally.

    Chocolate Thunder was a great nickname. I loved Dawkins. The original backboard breaker.

    I'll probably just refer to him as C-Walk.

    Maybe we can come up with some terrible nicknames.
    Walker, Gator Rim Ranger.

    That's pretty terrible. It just rolls of the tongue and how many nicknames get a comma?

    He doesn't, some of our fans feel the need to give him a nickname.

    I'm in the "let's not do nicknames" category. Very few are novel or unique. Skywalker has certainly been done to death.
