Evan Fournier's nickname is not only funny, but it is also good advice. Fournier's nickname is "Never Google".

The guard received this nickname a few years ago, after he made an interesting discovery. The discovery was so intense that Fournier took to Twitter to warn others.

He tweeted something along the lines of "By the way, NEVER google my last name. You don't wanna see that." And, he's right.

Googling Fournier's last name brings up a disease that received its name from a french dermatologist named Jean-Alfred Fournier. It is a type of gangrene that Fournier named in 1883. Fournier of the Magic decided to google his last name and saw the unfortunate results. Once NBA Twitter got a hold of Fournier's tweet, he received the nickname "Never Google". The name eventually stuck.

What started as an innocent Google search became one of the NBA's funniest nicknames.
