The Little Ball of Hate nickname was absolutely terrible. It sounds like something that a 90 year old woman would say. I assume everyone that liked it was also 90 years old. But I digress. The Honey Badger name was perfect from the start. Its the most accurate nickname to describe a player outside of Calvin "Megatron" Johnson.
