San Antonio Spurs' draftee Nando De Colo was recently profiled by a Spanish television and in particular the topic of his nickname "Aladdin" was brought up.
His nickname came from the Disney movie "Aladdin" due to him looking like the genie portrayed in the movie. In reality they mean the genie and not the human character. Of course his court-play has been "magical" this season shooting 60.4% and scoring 10.8 points for Power Electronics Valencia.
Now try not to laugh when you see him rubbing a lamp for the camera with a "get me out of here" look.
