Default Caron Butler's nickname is "Ocho"?

http://blog.washingtonpost.com/dcspo...rds_facts.html

Quote:
But at practice today, a practice in which only nine players were healthy, I heard people shouting out "Ocho." I figured that referred to Roger Mason Jr., No. 8. But nope. "Ocho" is Caron Butler.

"Cause he act like Kobe Bryant," DeShawn Stevenson explained.

"He's got all Kobe mannerisms," said Haywood, who coined that one.

"Brendan's crazy, man," Butler said.

I miss Caron

Tough Juice >>>>>>>>>>> Ocho.

he does some things Kobe does but not enough to make a nickname out of it.

besides I don't see Kobe shooting 52% from the damn field. I don't see Kobe having Caron's flawless decision making.

(I had to.)

oh by the way Konex I have completely abandoned my Odom > Butler sentiments. Odom is a little *****. Caron is the man. the 2 are lightyears apart. I don't know what I was thinking.

I disliked the trade when it was done as much as you hate it now. Caron has always had the talent and IQ to be an All-Star caliber player.

I think the nickname might have more to do with what Caron says to teammates and during practice than their on the court play. Just a thought.

I just don't like one of my favorite players being nicknamed after one of my least favorite.

Y'know for all the T-Mac, D-Wade, first initial followed by shortened last name nicknames...finally we have one that makes sense...

C-But..and we don't use it?
