I don’t know if Hakeem Nicks had a nickname before, but he certainly has one now. After the interview he gave Sports Illustrated’s Jimmy Traina, I’m calling him Harmony Hakeem. The New York Giants receiver conducted a Q&A with Traina over email where he essentially refused to answer any negative questions. The whole thing started off on a strange note when Nicks identified Denzel Washington as his celebrity crush. When he was asked some negative questions, he pretty much refused to go along. Here were some of his decidedly positive responses: SI.com: Celebrity whose popularity annoys you? Nicks: Nobody — to each their own. SI.com: Song you hate the most? Nicks: I’m not a hater. So the song I like the most is “Guap” by Big Sean. SI.com: Biggest Twitter pet peeve? Nicks: None. SI.com: Worst thing a fan has ever said to you? Nicks: The best thing a fan has said to me is “that I inspire them to be better people.” The whole thing is so bizarre you really just have to read it yourself. Harmony Hakeem has 53 catches for 692 yards and three touchdowns this season for the Giants. He seems like the nicest guy alive. Photo Credit: Kirby Lee/Image of Sport-US PRESSWIRE
