Nickname attributed 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.
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.
