to NBA Player, and Milwaukee Bucks Point Guard, Brandon Jennings. The nickname is a modification of Jennings' original nickname, "The Swizzle Stick" which was coined by NBA Broadcaster, and Bucks play by play announcer, Jim Paschke
coined the nickname based on Jennings explosive play and command of the team early
on in the 2009-10 NBA season. The Swizzle Stick was in reference
to Jennings' slight frame and his ability to motivate and "stir the drink" of the Milwaukee Bucks on-court play and momentum.
"The Swizzy" was an abbreviated, modification of 'The Swizzle Stick' that
began appearing online
in Milwaukee Bucks fan communities
and related social media in November
2009. It identifies Jennings' association inside of youth pop culture and supports his larger than
life personality on and off the court.
