I hear "Impressively Mature Young Man" at least 50 times a game. Leaning on that one.
Trey Burke deserves a nickname
The Butterfly? Or is that one taken?
Let Doyle come up with one, he'll no doubt do it.
We can't just keep naming a player and giving them a nickname. That's not how that is supposed to work. They are suposed to come natural or stem from an announcer saying something spur of the moment that he would normally be embarrassed to say.
Yeah, it can be a fun creative exercise, but I think the best nicknames usually evolve organically.
Trips to Win
It has to be Trey-mendous.
This is Michigan fergodsakes
And even though it's a football reference for a basketball nickname.... we know that Denard and Roundtree would approve
I second your motion...All In for Trey-mendous???
"Got Them the Fuck Off His Court" Burke.
doesn't "Trey" already mean three?
"Vice Duke Heinrich Wilhelm Laggenthorpe III, the Destroyer of Dreams", except maybe we should add more words to it
Vice Duke Heinrich Johan Wilhelm Hans-Peter Gerhart Franz Von Laggenthorpe III, the Destroyer of Dreams
What kind of lame Vice Duke would only have three names, after all...
Coco the Monkey?
Your gammy's dead!
You might be able to come up with something off that. (I am assuming that Trey is already a nickname).
I know . . . after that 3-pointer last night from beyond NBA range, how about "Trey"?
Alfonso Clark Burke III already has a nickname. It is Trey.
Before I had to.
just meant to be fun on a day after a great victory. There is no need for alarm.
Not alarmed at all. I was just putting my suggestion in.
Thank you for saying that, I was just about to make this exact statement.
But seriously, I'm afraid I'd totally Freude myself into getting that one wrong.
1 free fake internet point for you
Bien - as in Trey Bien
I call him 'Lil Burkey or just Burkey since he's a freshman.
Mr. Trey Shot
The only thing to come from Columbus
Marcus Ray as well.
I don't know, with his shooting, and "Trey" already being a nickname (Alfonso Clark Burke III), I think he's set...and can u really come up with something shorter AND cooler than Trey
Redundant!!! someone already made this point.
That is all.
He's so awesome it's sick. I've got Trey Burke-ulosis!!
Dat shit trey
Why not, he's got the touch.
The Dagger! Just ask State how that felt!
Trey "The Truth" Burke
Feeed Him tha ballll
"ICE!!!" the man has it flowing through his veins so why not?
for the way he carves up the defense
How about Alphonso Clark III?
And an amazing, insightful little nugget of informatino from a BTN commentator: "Hey did you know that Trey Burke wasn't named "Trey" because of his ability to shoot 3-pointers?"
Cause he attacks from the air and sting them over and over
Isn't that Stu Douglass's nickname?
Trey Money or Trey Million in the NBA next year!
Spartybeatfast. But then he'd have to change his number to 42.
Hell, just stick with Trey.
How about Trey?
for tuberculosis....cuz he is SICK
I can't contribute a nickname. Sorry.
But sources have informed me that Keith Appling now has a tatoo on his ass that reads - and I quote - "Owned by Trey Burke".
Ringer. Just sound right.
chris paul is CP3. trey burke? TB3.
Diaper Dandy all the way baby!
Oops. Double post, so I'll just add this:
Was there anyone else in the building last night other than Denard who could pull off the sunglasses indoors look?
He's the one wearing the glasses
Just watched that Gif for a very long time. Thank you so much.
I think it should be the burkulator. Here is urban dictionary use of the word. http://m.urbandictionary.com/#define?term=Perkulator
FWIW in my humble opinion nicknames cannot be created, they simply happen and they stick. In many cases the nickname has really nothing to do with anything significant but rather something stupid someone was doing and caught doing by friends.
"Manufactured" nicknames usually come across like the guy who laughs too hard at an unfunny joke by his boss. To me anyways......
I just want to celebrate Burke's performance in a great win. I don't really expect a lasting nickname to come out of this...Though I do like "Ice Trey" (below).
I think Trey-mendous is awesome, but it's good to see I'm not the only one that has Treyburke-ulosis.
TB3 kinduv like CP3
How about Count Trey of Crisler or 3rd Treymester or Ice Trey.
Rembrandt Q. Einstein
Handsome B. Wonderful
Spartan Killer is nice, but that could be anyone on the roster.
3B, that is all.
Behind this one. Clever and quick.
3 (trey) B (burke) hense 3B. Old threat just thought i would explain.
No nickname... His name is enough.
Slips in, does his work, and slips out. The Assassin.
Trey "All Day" Burke
Sonofabitch, just noticed I was too late on that one...
Trey the Truth!
Lavender Gooms? Ovaltine Jenkins? Watson Williams? Engel Woods?
I find myself texting friends "that frosh has ice in his veins"! So I'm going with Ice Trey.
Well since his poise and ice cold heroics at the end of games reminds me of Chauncey Billups, I would suggest CB4. I got the 4 by adding Chauncey's jersey number (1) when he was a Piston with Trey's number (3) as a Wolverine. Mathematical bitches!
I know I'll be calling him Quetzalcoatl Jr.
how about Trey-tor
TB, aka The Consumption
..."Cafeteria Trey" feeds another assist.
It was good enought for his mom and dad.
I just call him "good at basketball"
I nominate "Superfly"
The AA stands for Appling Abuser
Someone said Trigga earlier, ill add Trey...Trigga Trey
Respect my Gangsta!
ps. I coined this for a friend back in HS but it seems appropriate now...What a Baller!
Ice Trey .. C'mon man!
Maybe Tim. [not really, but that's what he was called in this morning's Washington Post story on the win over West Virginia.]
Amos It was Gene Berry's name in the 60's show Burke's Law
My family has been slowly coming up with nicknames for everyone on the team. The names have a tendency to morph over time, but this is where we're at as of last night's game:
Burke = Maestro
Hardaway = Black Adonis
McGary = Bieber Fever
Stauskas = The Canadian Assassin
Robinson = Silent but deadly (yes, this is obviously a very long nickname; we're working on it)
Morgan = Morgan (hard to get a beat on his personality - very business like dude)
Albrecht = Spike (hard to beat his first name, actually)
LeVert = The Walking Stick (you know, the long skinny bug that blends in with the tree bark)
