Horrors in Durham

The Duke Blue Devils have apparently nicknamed guard DeMarcus Nelson "Firestarter", presumably for his basketball play, and not a heretofore unknown arson charge. I find this a wonderful motivational technique and think all Duke players should have Stephen King nicknames:

  • Josh McRoberts - The Stand
  • Greg Paulus - Misery
  • Jon Scheyer - Desperation
  • Lance Thomas - Bag of Bones
  • Brian Zoubek - The Dead Zone
  • Dave McClure - The Long Walk
  • Gerald Henderson - Dolores Claiborne
What? Gerald's Game was too obvious.
