Turns out no one is trying to steal Matt Bonner’s nickname

An unlikely source confirmed that “The Red Mamba” is safe.

This first came to attention before the game began, when the Hawks’ official Twitter account tweeted their starting line-up based on the players’ nicknames,...

Open Thread: There’s only ONE Red Mamba

. . . and it’s not Kevin Huerter.

But the essence of The Red Mamba is his playing. Bonner was a...
