Marcin Gortat ‘The Polish Hammer’

‘The Polish Hammer’ is a fitting nickname for NBA center Marcin Gortat who hails from Poland. When Gortat gets a full head of steam he’ll throw down a nasty hammer dunk on his opponent.

Gortat was given his nickname while he was a member of the Phoenix Suns. Gortat explained “after one of the summer leagues I was the leading shot blocker. And one of the fans posted the nickname ‘The Polish Hammer’ on the internet on a blog.”

Gortat had a Thor-like hammer tattooed on his arm during the 2016 offseason. The new tattooed covered over his previous gremlin tattoo.
