Half Smokes Hypothetical: John Wall's Nickname, The Debate Continues

This afternoon there has been a twitter war (well not really a war, more of a skirmish) about a nickname for John Wall. Our very own Jake Whitacre disagrees with the J-Wow moniker given to him by the hate-filled Colin Cowherd, while Wizznutzz seems to be running with it.

The J-Wow nickname was given as an insult, so I don't think it can be taken into consideration; and that doesn't even take into account that it is terrible even out of context. Which means John Wall is walking around nicknameless, and those of us on a 24 hours news cycle can't stand for that. I think the best nickname I've heard for Wall so far is, "The Great Wall of Chinatown," but that's a mouthful and is hard to say all at once when you're yelling at the top of your lungs. Great nicknames are two maybe three syllables, max.

Full discretion: I don't really believe that nicknames are given out of thin air. They need to happen organically for them to stick. They aren't made, they are found. Unless of course your name is Shaquille O'Neal, then you can do whatever you want. But since we have the space, we'll ask for some of your suggestions.
