Great Nickname: J-Love

Postby joejlitz » Sat Nov 21, 2009 7:10 am

J-love coming to town

HE'S GOT THE BEST name in college basketball. Heck, he may have the best name in all of sports.

He's Just-in'love Smith and he'll be in town tomorrow night when Siena takes on Temple at the Liacouras Center.

Other athletes have unique names - Coco Crisp, Milton Bradley and God Shammgod come to mind. But Just-in'love? You gotta think this guy scores on and off the court.

Heck, it's better than most nicknames we've heard, including "White Magic," which is what they called Siena coach Fran McCaffery - a Philly native/La Salle High grad - when he laced up his Converse back in the day.

Smith, a senior guard, is on record as saying he got the name simply because his mother loved him so much. His mom died when he was 13, and he says the one-of-a-kind name now serves as a constant reminder of her affection.

Hard to beat 1970s-era Nebraska running back Isiah Moses Hipp, who was known as I.M. Hipp. I can still remember Lyle Bremser calling Hipp's name as he ran the ball. Even then I thought it was a cool name.

Best nickname in sports is Dan Verbeek "Little Ball of Hate" :-)

Jens "Little Evil" Pulver gets an honourable mention.
