With the discovery that Scoop Jardine's perfect anagram name is Jade Scorpion, it got me thinking...what are some of the other anagram nicknames we're missing out on? Let's investigate:

Kris Joseph

Anagram Nickname: Jokers Ship (Menacing if you're thinking Heath Ledger's Joker. Not at all menacing if you're thinking Jack Nicholson's)

Rick Jackson

Anagram Nickname: Cock Skin Jar (Giggled for at least ten minutes straight after seeing this. I implore you to start yelling it during games.)

Brandon Triche

Anagram Nickname:  The Rabid Cornn (doesn't entirely make sense, but then again neither does the way Triche has been playing this year)

Honorable Mention: Hot Crab Dinner (H/T: ForthCountry)

Dion Waiters

Anagram Nickname: Saint Wierdo (H/T: ForthCountry)

Fab Melo

Anagram Nickname: Lamb Foe (You've heard the sating "Lions for Lambs?" He's the Lion)

Baye Moussa Keita

Anagram Nickname: A Beauties Mask, Yo (Honestly, I was already calling him that anyway)

James Southerland

Anagram Nickname: Jolt, A Hardness Emu (Perfect name for a Saturday morning cartoon as well)

Mookie Jones

Anagram Nickname: Noisome Joke (Seems mean, but, it was it is)

C.J. Fair

Anagram Nickname: No anagrams found (which also works as his nickname...there is no anagram to contain him).

Brandon Reese

Anagram Nickname: Tie between Seaborne Nerd,  Bean Endorser and Ensnared Bore. (I'm fine with any of them)

Jim Boeheim

Anagram Nickname: I Jibe Em Ohm (He really does)

Daryl Gross

Anagram Nickname: Lardy Gross (/GIGGLE)
