My personal favourite gots to be "The Answer"......... go figure. Honourable mention to Shaq Diesel, The Big Shaqtus and Superman (lol whoever that is).

Who do you guys think got the best Nickname of all the players in the NBA?

Flash, and King James.

Those names are marketable, and rolls off the tongue.

Durantula

Just my opinion but Durantula is HORRENDOUS that will NEVER grow on me. I'm just saying. I much rather KD35.

nah man i didn't mean that as disrespect. I get your point but every nick don't have to be hard it can be funny to and durantula is funny as hell dude has long arms like a spider and he kill hoopers from beyond the arc kinda like how spiders catch they prey with webs and usually far away to come back to a nice meal. I don't know how much sense that mad but oh well..

Interesting...... i got a question for you..... should nicknames be retired as well (sarcasm)??? I mean if Jordan Farmar was to one day get a break away tomahawk jam and then decided to start calling himself Air Jordan I'll be pissed to say the least. Lol.

For what it's worth, Durant says he's cool with Durantula but prefers K-Smoove, since he thinks that fits his game better and it's what he was called growing up. But hey, you don't get to pick your nicknames fawker.

+1 for nicknames that players can incorporate into the game. See: Chris "The Birdman" Anderson cocking his wings and flying back to the defensive side after a jam last night. Hilarious.

He's tough, as his name sounds close to John Havlicek's nickname, Hondo, and it's already pretty short.

We really have to figure out how his first name is pronounced correctly, as I've heard him called both RAY-jon and RAH-jon. Maybe we can work something off his first name, if we knew the exact way to say it.

Not every player post-1990 have been bestowed a nickname. Most have made them up themselves. Yes, that includes Shaq.

The fact is, no one had a nickname for Kobe Bryant. Early on the media tried such things like "The Air Apparent" and "His Heirness" (obviously a play on Jordan's "Airness" and the assumption that Kobe would ascend the throne to basketball royalty), but nothing stuck. Some of my friends, who hate the Lakers, called him First Time (Felon) after the alledged rape, but we all know that name wouldn't catch on or work. Thankfully.

Yeah he was on the cover of magazines, but that doesn't really prove he didn't create the "Chosen One" nickname. They interviewed him, maybe he said it to them, or w/e, besides that's beyond the point... Kobe >/= Shaq, Shaq made 100s so if Kobe wants to make one nickname he can.

The Green Goblin (because that's the comic book character that he reminds me of)
The Pacifier (because every Big Baby needs one)
Maharajoni (or just Maharaji)
Jiminy Cricket
Lone Ranger (and Rondo)
Help Me Rondo, Help Help Me Rondo
Rondo Friendo ("No Country For Old Men")
RedRum (Red Auerbach smoked, but did he drink?)
Jack the Ripper (because his initials are RPR)
The Gremlin
Thin Man

I actually like that.

One of the Orlando announcers from the summer league games referred Tyrus Thomas as the "Soul Eater"

What about the black panther or spiderman for Durant? Both are better than durantula...

and if anybody in the league is Mighty Mouse its Aaron Brooks. That little dude can ball.

I feel like there hasn't been a nickname for Rondo yet? If there hasn't been, what should it be?

Just call him "Dirty", not because he's got dirty moves or anything, just cuz hes the Bruce Bowen of this generation of Basketball.

Or you could call him "Punch-out"..... Rondo stole my bike.

I'm not sold on Durantula either. There has to be something more creative than that out there.

Mighty Mouse has already been taken by Damon Stoudemire. Let's not start another Shaq v. D-Ho "Who gets to be Superman debate," albeit over the Mighty Mouse moniker.

John "Spider" Sally comes to mind, but I don't think anyone used the name Spider-Man. Still, don't really like it for Durant.

The Black Panther? Whoa, easy there, fella! We can't go giving a name like that to just anyone, especially in the NBA. If anyone gets to be called BP, it should be that future Rhodes Scholar, Myron Rolle. After all, the Black Panther wasn't just athletically gifted, but he was billed to be one of the most intellectually gifted men on the planet and the sovereign of one of the most technology advanced nations in the (fictional) world. Nope, can't give KD the Black Panther name.

I overheard a sportscaster describe Durant as "George Gervin-like" and smooth. Now we can't go calling him "Big Smooth" (taken) or even "Iceman II." I'd call him SubZero, but there is already an "Agent Zero" in the league. Still, I can't shake the connection to ice. The "Hailstorm" Kevin Durant? Kevin Durant, The Cryogenic Man?? Nope, won't work.

Maybe this...

Superconductivity occurs when a material is reduced to extremely low temperatures, resulting in zero electrical resistance. Watching Kevin play, we could say that Kevin Durant's game is so cold that he reduces defenses to zero resistance to his electrifying skills.

And there you have it, ladies and gents. I give you "The Superconductor" Kevin Durant.

Durantula, hands down. Best nickname.

And can we please pass a motion to stop just calling people by initials. OH! And just because you throw a number at the end of it doesnt make it unique or original:

So if you think KD or KD35 is better than Durantula your an idiot, I also hate:

CB4
KG
CP3
KB8
KB24
etc.

Show some originality people...oh yeah...and D-Will, A-Rod, T-Mac, etc. aren't much better...

A nickname is a descriptive name or can just be a person's name shortened. So while initials may not be the 'best' or most creative nicknames, they are nicknames nonetheless.

And besides, these work:

CP3 - rhymes
AK47 - Kalashnikov
CB4 - best movie ever (well, maybe not, but still)
