Toney Douglas’s nickname and future destination

I don’t know why I didn’t think of this while he was at FSU, but I am starting a movement to give  Toney Douglas the nickname “Ghostface”. For those aren’t down with their hip-hop, here’s why:  Back in 2004, Wu-Tang Clan rapper Ghostface Killah released an album called “The Pretty Toney Album“.  Then, in 2007, Ghostface released a book called “The World According to Pretty Toney“. And so because Toney Douglas’s game at FSU was pretty, he is now “Ghostface” or the even shorter “Ghost”. Feel free to follow along.

Now as for where our newly christened Ghostface Douglas will continue his basketball career, it’s never too early to look at the mock drafts. Are we looking at another first rounder a la Al Thornton? Or will we be patiently waiting for over two hours to hear Douglas’s name, like we did for Alexander Johnson?

So far,

NBADraft.net has Douglas going 40th to the Charlotte Bobcats.

DraftExpress.com has Douglas going 36th to the Detroit Pistons.

And of course, ESPN.com’s mock draft is behind the Insider wall.

Eh, I thought it would be a little higher than that. Maybe he will climb as we get closer to the June draft.

(By the way, I’m on Twitter. Feel free to follow.)

    he was straight up one of the best players in the ACC last year. Hopefully he can find a home as a point guard/playmaker on the next level.
