The National Basketball & Hip-Hop Culture Month Foundation www.NBHHCM.org has recently created a new signature nickname for the 4 star players of the LA Lakers Kobe Bryant, Pau Gasol, Lamar Odom, and Ron Artest. The new signature name incorporates the first name of all 4 players to combine as one.
The Ko P. La-Ron signature name sounds like a fancy clothing designer that you might find in New York, Miami, or on Rodeo Drive of Beverly Hills says, Derrick E. Vaughan Founder of NBHHCM and the creator of the Ko P. La-Ron signature nickname.
The name was inspired by the early to mid 1990's R&B group Jodeci. The group name was a combination of all 4 band members http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Jodeci.
The Ko P. La-Ron signature name comes from the Ko-Kobe, P.-Pau, La-Lamar, and Ron-Ron. This is the first time in sports history that 4 star players have ever been brought together to form one name. The Gloden State Warriors of early 1990's were known as RUN-TMC with Tim Hardaway, Mitch Richmond (a former LA Laker), and Chris Mullin. Their up-tempo style of play made them popular with fans, but they never contended for an NBA Championship.
The Los Angeles Lakers are one of the favorite teams picked of the 2009-10 season to win a back-to-back Championship. Now the fans of Laker-land can cheer on their team and chant KO-P-LA-RON when all 4 players are on the court at the same time. If this team wins the 2009 NBA World Championship then all of the sports world will begin to call them the
"Ko P. La-Ron Dynasty."
