From Pau Gasol to Joe Smith: Assigning Each Laker A Nickname

Shannon Brown- The Energizer Bunny

Shannon Brown’s popularity had risen over the past few years. Fans are dazzled by his explosive play and incredible leaping ability. Although Brown occasionally misses dunk, the ones he makes are “jaw-dropping.”

Fans and analysts have given Brown some very interesting nicknames: UPS and What Can Brown Do for You. Although these nicknames are great, they do not capture the full essence of Shannon Brown. Brown has made it a priority to become more than just a “dunker,” he wants to be a more all-around player.

This season, Brown has improved his jump shot and also his decision making.  Whenever Phil Jackson subs Brown into the game, the Lakers receive an immediate spark. Just like The Energizer Bunny, Shannon Brown gives the Lakers a much needed boost off the bench.
