Stiemsma is a shot blocking machine. He should have a nickname. How about the "white eraser?" Thoughs?
Good pick up.
He's surprised me a lot. Coming out of Wisconsin I didn't see him having much of a future in the NBA. But he has definitely settled into a nice role and it's cool to see him really take advantage of it. Has good size/strength and a knack for blocking shots when he's on-ball. A real hustle guy that doesn't make it look pretty but gets the results...
They already call him the " steamer", I have respect for guys like him and gerald green. Guys who dissappear , go overseas and improve their games, then come back and be productive in the NBA
The Human White Out.
My third pick, GREGSANITY.
Greg Kite On Steroids
Greg "Kite" Stiemsma
The Beantown Birdman
Mark Eaton 2.0
Greg "The Hammer" Stiemsma
Greg The Im-PALE-R
with a name like Stiemsma he doesn't need a nickname
*cough cough cough* another reason why teams shouldn't feel like they have to make huge investments in unskilled shot blockers *cough cough cough*
I'm a Celtic fan. But I know he isn't the answer to anything and will be let go at any moment that is Convenient.
He's a serviceable big who can give you 16 minutes a game, a la Jeff Foster a few years back
He is absolutely nothing like Foster. Don't think Foster blocked a shot in like 10 years in the league. People have a weird obsession with comparing big white dudes to other big white dudes simply coz they are big white dudes.
Why can't he be the eraser? Why does he have to be the white eraser?
How about "Young-white-man-on-team-full-of-old-black-guys-and-Rajon-Rondo"?
It's Native American
those last 3 comments got me laughing.
Why not call Stiemsma the "Green Monster"?
Y'all some H0es 4 real. Keep hating its what your good aty lol
If he ever plays for the Cavs they can call him the Cleveland Steamer.
Tommy Heinsohn already compared him to Bill Russell.
"Bill Russell didn't have a nickname. He is just "Russell'. Same with 'Stiemsma'". -- Tom Heinsohn
P.S. My last suggestion: The Stiemsmanian Devil.
