He plays like Reggie Bush on the field...nicknaming him Reggie Bush is lame, so they gave him a nickname along with something that deviates him from Bush. They could have called him "The Twelve-Year Old Reggie Bush" or "The Short Reggie Bush" and it would still convey the same message; that he's not Reggie Bush, but he plays close to it.
Could Madison have just been referring to the fact that his moves were awesome, no matter what race he is?? You are way overthinking this. He could just have moves like Bush or wear the same number as Bush. I am in the same boat. Race doesn't matter. The kid is good. If someone wants to give him a retarded nickname, that doesn't mean that I have to use/accept it.
I don't want to speak for Madison, though.
