Closed Captioning Gives Nik Stauskas The Nickname 'Sauce Castillo'

By: Evan Jankens

Former Michigan Wolverine Nik Stauskas has received a new nickname --whether he likes it or not.

During Tuesday's game between Stauskas' current team the Sacramento Kings and the Philadelphia 76ers, closed captioning gave Stauskas an interesting nickname, "Sauce Castillo."

The caption read, "Sauce Castillo hit the three, Nik Stauskas, the 8th pick in the draft."

Twitter and the Kings have now embraced the "Sauce Castillo" nickname.

It's a pretty great nickname. I may just start rooting for "Sauce Castillo."
