Being a teenager is terrible and embarrassing, even if you are a burgeoning professional athlete like J.J. Redick.

The Clipper sharpshooter reached back to a time before he was an NBA player, and even before he was infuriating opposing fans at Duke, to when he was just a 13-year-old who loved firing up longballs with an email name to match his passion. Former Duke assistant Chris Collins remembered the nom de internet well.

It turns out embarrassing email names are commonplace among future NBA players, as Doug McDermott and Frank Kaminsky also chimed in with an awful addresses of their own.

These would all make for wonderfully awful Twitter parody account handles, so if any of you are feeling industrious you should act fast.
