Something wonderful happened during Tuesday night’s game between the 76ers and Kings. Sacramento rookie shooting guard Nik Stauskas hit a pull-up three, and the closed captioning translated the play-by-play call of “Stauskas, hitting the three” into “Sauce Castillo hit the three.” Sauce Castillo!
This moment of divine nickname provenance was first spotted by Andrew Unterberger, and Sauce Castillo has since swept its way across the internet.
It’s your nickname ever since it was sent to you from the closed captioning heavens, Nik. There is no better way to receive a nickname. You are Sauce Castillo, now and forever.
