Who do you think has the best nic-name in the nba? Personally i think its Andrei Kirelinko, with AK-47. How about you?

I like the Diesle

IKm tired of the intials or the intials and numbers cp3 ect

I like Jesus Shuttles worth
The Big Ticket

I liked when they meant somthing you know/

Air Jordan
Sky Walker
the Mailman

Nick names now kinda suck.

AK-47....its catchy, its his initials, its his number, its his nationality, and its undoubtedly the best.

Nick names now kinda suck.

All they do now is affix the player's initials to their numbers, which by the way started with the AK-47.

CP3
D12
CB4

people sure are running out of ideas...

i agree that cp3, d12,cb4 are very lame but ak-47 is good and imaginative for reasons everyone else has said.

haha...I was thinking of "the big aristotle" as well. "The Truth" is the worst one in the NBA.....what does that even mean? "Starbury" was a good one a few years ago. "Big shot Rob" was one that fit.

It means Pierce went off on the Lakers, and after the game Shaq said...

It was late after the Celtics' 112-107 loss in Los Angeles Tuesday and Shaquille O'Neal was still in the Lakers dressing room. Pulling a reporter aside, he shook his head and said, "Paul Pierce."

Leaning toward the notepad, he said, "Take this down. My name is Shaquille O'Neal, and Paul Pierce is the (expletive deleted) truth. Quote me on that, and don't take nothing out. I knew he could play, but I didn't know he could play like this. Paul Pierce is the truth."

I'm not a big fan of CP3 or CB4. But I like D12, maybe b/c i'm a big fan of the rap group D12.

BTW, how many of these favourite nickname threads to we need.
My favourite is Magic. Its more than a nickname now, its who he is. No one calls him Earvin anymore.

AK-47 is a bad *** name. You do know thats a russian machine gun? and not just some random initials with his number.

That's by far the best nickname in the nba.

AK-47 is the exceptoion, it has meaning, he's russian its a russian machine gun, thats cool, what most people here are taking issue with are the ones that dont mean anything except the intials and numbers ie:
Cp3
CB4
ect ect, seriously for players of this caliber can't we come up with better nic names?

Old school - "Iceman" George Gervin

Both really cool and fit the players really well.
