The Los Angeles Lakers defeated the Miami Heat in six games. LeBron James, Anthony Davis, and the rest of the guys had to think of many ways to keep Jimmy Butler and his team under control. There were too many strategies and the Lakers even gave Duncan Robinson a new nickname.
Robinson did pretty great in the series against LA. His brilliance helped Miami win Game 5. He finished the game with 26 points on 8 of 15 shooting and 7 of 13 from three-point range. Robinson led the Heat to a 111-108 win and it was really powerful.
Well, Robinson’s points weren’t enough to help Miami win Game 6. The Heat finished the game with a 106-93 loss and LA won the NBA championship. Guess who helped in the process? The Lakers bench did really well in slowing Robinson down.
Duncan Robinson gets a crazy nickname
Robinson revealed that LA bench players called him “Jimmy Neutron.” Players often yelled the nickname throughout the games. Lakers players nicknamed him Jimmy Neutron, and some fans said he looks more like Sheen from the show. It was hilarious and awkward at the same time. NBA players and fans sure know how to have fun. Lakers players didn’t need the crowd to get wild. They did pretty well in an empty arena.
“During the Finals, the Lakers’ bench was yelling ‘Jimmy Neutron’ at me,” Robinson Tuesday. “So I don’t understand how I can be Sheen and also Jimmy Neutron.”
If you ask Robinson, he will say that Jimmy Neutron works better for him. “I’d probably be Jimmy,” he said.
This was more than enough for NBA fans to start comparing Robinson to other TV and movie characters.
NBA teams have a few nice ideas to use in the upcoming season. Robinson should have kept this a secret. He didn’t really need to share his new nickname. Lakers players and other teams will definitely use the “Jimmy Neutron” thing against him.
Is Robinson really bothered with this? I don’t think so. He is focused on the big revenge. Maybe he has other plans.
