The nickname

Before we get to the on-the-floor ramifications of the Kevin Martin extension, the nickname issue warrants discussing.

Beyond the obvious fact that Kenyon Martin was K-Mart before the local version made it big, there's just no way anyone who signs a $55 million contract should be associated with a bargain shopping store. Among e-mailers, sports radio call-in folks and internet chat types, this is a popular topic, something along the lines of "Kevin's a great young player, but that nickname ... " So feel free to send all suggestions in (samick@sacbee.com) and I'll weed through the better offerings and see what we can get going since it seems he'll be in town for quite a while.
