Before the ink dried on the trade that brought Rudy Gay to Sacramento, fans were already thinking of nicknames for the incoming players.
A week later and a few names have stuck though it’s a photoshop by a fan who seemingly caught the attention of the masses when he took Gay, his teammates and owner Vivek Ranadive and edited them into a promotional shot for the popular television program, the ‘Cosby Show’.
One of the most popular characters on the show was that of ‘Rudy’, the loveable young child played by actress Keshia Knight Pulliam. Taking that into consideration, the photoshop artist took Gay’s head and placed it on ‘Rudy’, repeating the actions for the remaining characters.
Deemed the ‘Dunkxtables’ instead of their better known last name, the ‘Huxtables’, the photoshop went viral when Isaiah Thomas re-tweeted the picture, getting a good laugh out of it:
Certainly one of the funnier ‘shop’s I’ve seen in a while.
