Some of those suck

The names that take parts of the player's name, TMac, DMiles, Q, etc are not good nicknames. Some of them, Spree, Mt. Mutombo, and MJ, are alright, but the rest of them are too unoriginal. I believe MJ was the first use of a player's initials like that, using part of the first and last name to make a new one.

Some that I like are Lamar Odom's "the goods," Hardaway's "Penny," and Hakeem's "the dream." I can't think of any others right now, because it's 4 in the morning.

I didn't even know that Hughes had a nickname. He doesn't deserve it, and especially not a name like smooth. All he can do is drive and dunk. Plus he just got cut.

My favorite nickname ever is one that we gave one of my friends in like 3rd grade. He was always tall and skinny and the best player out off all the guys who played at recess. Plus he had so many moves he could always score. Plus he's white. For the past 7 or 8 years he's been known, among other nicknames(he's the kind of guy you have to give a nickname, so he's had many, like White Lightning), as Milkshake. I don't know why, but that name is still perfect for him.

I'm partial to the Pistons, but I like "Big" Ben Wallace. You know, like the clock in England. Then, when he flushes the Palace is filled with big bell chimes and the crowd goes absolutely nuts.

I like all of those, too, but one of my very favorites is:

Big Game James, for James Worthy, and he was worthy of that name. :D

For today's players, I guess I like "the glove", amongst a few others.
