I'm pushing for this nickname. I think everyone should support it. Devante "Fridge" Gardner is a stud and will make everyone forget about Trevor Mbakwe, Pat Hazel, Jamil Lot, etc...

His first name is spelled Davante, not Devonte.  I'm just saying that since his name is misspelled in the SOTG box.  I like his nickname OX anyway.

Mini-Fridge?? I'd go with Ox still though. He puts his head down and finds away to score. Anyone know the reason Homer and George call him the "Artist"?

He went by "Ox" on his own FB page.  Must be a new thing.

Homer was calling him "The Beast" on the radio (at least the part of it that was broadcast).

I think we should go with "hungry hungry hippo" due to his hustle on the boards

Ox is OK...  Fridge has a nice ring to it, superfan.

I think it's lame to try and come up with a new nickname for a guy already called the Ox.  That's a great name that fits and he obviously likes it!  GO OX!!!

I don't think he liked THE Ox, or The Big Ox or something, but Ox is fine.

Homer on the radio is now calling him "The Artist" lol.

Go Davante and GO MARQUETTE!

Put me down for "The Fridge" I believe "The Fridge" best captures the legendary aura he carries around like a shadow.

Fridge is a terrible nickname.  He's been Ox since high school.  He is Ox in the SOTG picture.

Fridge is unoriginal.  Plus, he's got a much more diverse skill set and agility than your average Kenmore.  I don't know how agile your average ox is but I'm sure its more than an inanimate object.  Plus you don't mess with an established nickname. OX all the way.

I like "the artist" but agree that Ox is the original and has a nice ring to it.

I agree with this, but I think that is the beauty of "The Fridge." It is both ironic and accurate at the same time.

It should be Ox by a mile.... Fridge is pretty much blah.  I think everyone's forgotten about those 3, but Davante makes us remember Robert Jackson.  This kid looks like a stud... love the confidence, he's gonna get the calls going up strong like that.

JELLO!

j/k

Sticking with "Ox" as his nickname will bring a whole new meaning when someone says to him, "What up, D.O.G.?!?'
