Baby Jesus- The name given to Marc Gasol at this years Rookie Challenge by Chris Webber, because marc looks like the sterotypical white jesus, but with short hair.

Here's one that I just remembered after posting it and if the originator sees it they can correct the spelling.

 

Gelvelop - The belief that a young team will see improvement over time as they gel together.

Ositos: (literally 'Toy Bears') It's the way we call the grizzlies in the spanish boards...

Ositos Ninja: (Ninja toy bears) we used this variant referring to the grizzlies during Fratty's era... :lol:

 

Cheers.

It depends, we usually refer to Randolph as "El gordi" (the fatty) and sometimes Marc too, so they are "Los gordis" (the fatties). Note that it's not in a despective tone at all, it's more of an affectionate nickname.

 

Slimming down is not going to change that :D

 

As you see, we are extremely affectionate over there: Ositos (teddy bears), even Ositos Amorosos (Care Bears, remember the show) back when we defended even less, Los gordis...

HA!

 

Forgot about that one.

That was back in the Marcaroni years, otherwise known as the Dark Ages.

 

Is Marcaroni in here?

Should be a cuss word if it is.
