Personally were all pulling for Mountain Drew but we think Bynumite might take it! You decide. You vote! To cast your vote, visit the Lakers Examiner. When done, sound-off in the comments and tell us what you voted for!

newnameLakers Examiner: Ask and you shall receive.

Thanks to the hundreds of true Los Angeles Lakers fans that racked their brains to come up with clever and creative nicknames for the surging Andrew Bynum.

I had many fans tell me that Andrew Bynum already has a nickname. One said he is commonly referred to as “A-Bomb” while another fan asserted that he has only one true nickname: “Drew.” Still others told me that Bynum’s nickname in high school was “A-Train.”

I also found out that the Lakers have an internal nickname for him, “Socks,” due to the fact that he allegedly showered in his socks after practice one day because his teammates stole his shower sandals.

Although I’m sure that these names all exist, it just proves my point that we need to come together and give Andrew Bynum one solid nickname that will go national. We can’t have a future All-Star center with more than one nickname, right?

So, without further ado, here are the top five, in no particular order, that you can vote on to determine Andrew Bynum’s OFFICIAL nickname…

    Or ab17

    For Josh Powell: lionheart

    Ariza: the shadow my personal own. or cobra clutch

  • daboss1848

    His nickname in HS was A-Train and his nickname on the Lakers has been Poonum or Vagynum (courtesy of Freshh), thus far . . .

    Why not stick to one of the names he has already been given?

  • Trifecta37

    This is dispicable. How many times do we have to say it? Nicknames are either self-declared, or earned. Fans like us (despite our enthusiasm, shouldn’t give Bynum a nickname.) He’ll earn it from P-Jax or Kobe or Mike Wilbon one day and it’ll stick.

    I agree. When ABC revealed his nickname in high school was A-Train, I thought that was kinda cool and it should stick.

    A-Train!!!

    I heard Odom call Trevor Ariza the “Electric Boogaloo” is that true? Because that’s about the funniest damn nickname I’ve ever heard.

    I like the Absolute but the A-Train would be cool too. In fact, since Bynum had it since HS he would love to be called that. Let’s make the guy feel good instead of giving him a nickname he wouldn’t like. It’s his nickname isn’t it?

  • YellowPurpleFever

    Bynamite!!! Sounds good

  • Ballin ’09

    Yeah Absolute fits the bill…Open a dictionary and look it up. It’s uncommon ( No one else uses this name except the Vodka of coarse) and the dictionary definition is a good fit for him…Look up “absolute” and “absolute value” I’m sure you’ll agree. The

    Andrew “ABsolute” Bynum.

  • Leor

    Andrew “The Babymaker” Bynum

    And-1 Bynum. Double meaning, depending on whether he comes to play that given game.
