    Default On Granger's Nickname...

    "Danger" Granger?! I mean, you all can't be serious. You might be able to guess what I think his nickname should be, but let's all agree that "Danger" Granger is a terrible nickname and should never be used again. Or am I in the minority here?

    I like "Danger" well enough. I don't love it. However, when people immediately follow "Danger" with his actual name, Granger, I think it sounds dorky as hell and I don't like it at all.

    Danger? Yeah, sure.

    Danger Granger? Bleh.

    I'm definately open to suggestions.
    What do you want to call him?

    Yeah, right, I guess I'm in this boat too, but still...what does "Danger" connote?

    I much prefer, "The Gift"

    If you think it is too sissy, then consider the dark side of it. In German, "gift" means "poison".

    I think it says that he's a threat to the opposition. If you're playing against Danny Granger, you are in danger, so to speak.

    I think of him as a gift, so sometimes I'll think of him as "The Gift", but that's a lousy basketball nickname so I don't really use it.

    As for Danger, I've tried to play with it a bit during games. When he does something good you can say the other team is enDangered.

    How about Danny Danger? It makes him sound like he should be appearing on an episode of the Super Friends on a Saturday morning in 1979.

    Granger should have his own superhero cartoon.

    I was ready for Josh Smith to go to Indiana, but he went to the NBA. I am ready for him to come to Indiana once again.

    Hahahahah...I think you went in the wrong direction with that one - we want a better nickname, but still, I like it.

    It's important for us fans to get a good nickname now before he (hopefully) blows up.

    Danger Dan is a famous old nickname from something or other. Guessing it came from there rather than Danger Granger. And it came from his college days didn't it?

    'The Gift' makes him sound like some kind of supernatural being that roams the earth helping people with their spiritual problems.
    He could have his own show on the WE network with Della Reese!

    No one has yet suggested the spoonerism: "Granny Danger."

    And I'm not about to be the one who does...eyuck.

    Kid is The Gift cause he was handed to us at 17th in the Draft.

    Also helps accurately describe the past few seasons: The Gift and The Curse...aka...Danny and Ron Ron.


    This one could also serve as an alternate for all you O' Brother Where Art Thou fans:

    Welcome to Pacers Digest! New around here? Here are three tips for making the forum a great place to talk about Pacers basketball.

    • Log in. Even if you want to read instead of post, it's helpful because it lets you:
    • Change your signature options. You can hide all signatures by choosing "Settings" (top right) then "General Settings" (middle left) and unchecking the box "Show Signatures" (in the "Thread Display Options" area).
    • Create an ignore list. I know it may seem unneighborly. But you're here to talk about the Pacers, not argue with someone who's just looking for an argument. Most of the regular users on here make use (at least occasionally) of the "Ignore" feature. Just go to "Settings" -> "Edit Ignore List" and add the names.

    Enjoy your time at PD!
