Cody Zeller ("The Big Handsome")

Admittedly, this is a really pointless topic, but I can't seem to find an answer anywhere. Why in the world is Cody Zeller called "The Big Handsome"?! What are the origins of this nickname? Because, as far as I can tell, he's far from handsome. Is this meant to be some ultra-ironic, hipster style joke that I'm just not in on? Thanks to anyone who can answer my incredibly stupid question.

The Big Handsome

Indiana fans had to settle giving Zeller the nickname "The Big Handsome" because "The Big Baryshnikov," "The Big Aristotle," and "The Big Shamrock" were already taken. They had to trademark "The Big Handsome" before Shaq took it.

Irony

It's irony.

If I were to compare his level of sexiness with a player of the past, I'd go with Ostertag.

i think today Kelly Olynyk is

i think today Kelly Olynyk is no doubt the most sexist player in all of college basketball, he's not Adam Morrison sexy but still damn sexy... so i think that the MSP award should go to him this year.
