    PG will be the first player in the history of the NBA to have the first name of Luigi.

    Pizza Guy seems a little ethnically insensitive. Although I guess it's better than Spaghetti Guy.

    ahhh, its better call him a "Guy" can't go wrong with this one unless he is actually a transvestite. ....... screw it. Again, too tochy subject, label him with random combination of numbers and....you know, they do it in certain facilities...

    This pretty much secures our spot in the playoffs.

    I don't view it that way at all.
    Italy is a Country, not a race.
    Their are people of ALL different races that call themselves Italians.

    ...and technically, Pizza is more North American than Italian. Which is why it's such a stupid Nickname (*news flash* - I appreciate stupid humor)

    Calling Kravtsov "The Russian Guy (TRG)" is especially funny since he is actually from the Ukraine.

    PG seems like a great name for Luigi.

    "Gigi" was Datome's nickname in Italia. Fine by me.

    That isn't 1/100th as cool as Pizza Guy.

    Plus, it makes me think of this:

    If we call him Pizza Guy, then when he gets a dunk, Blaha can yell "the Pizza Guy delivers!"

    He could be "hot and ready" off the bench similar to the microwave.

    So.... after 4 pages of absolute nonsense, does anyone have any actual info on him other than he is the Italian league mvp who looks like Rick Fox?

    Nope, not really.

    My guess is that he will hardly play, and Lee will be convinced that he could be the savior of the team.
