Who do you guys think has the greatest nickname of all time? In my opinion, Vince Carter has the best nicknames: Vinsanity, Half-man Half-amazing, VC, Air Canada. I also like Kevin Durant: The Durantula

NBA: Magic; Earvin Effay Johnson, Jr.... Best one ever cause it turned into his name.

NFL: "The Law Firm";Benjarvus Green Ellis. I love this one.

NBA: James "Buddah" Edwards
I don't watch nascar but just saying "The Intimedator" you don't have to be a fan to know who someone is talking about
MMA: "The Dean of Mean" Keith Jardine! my personal favorite nickname, he is no longer a good fighter the the topic is nicknames not if they are the best at what they do.

AK47 - Andrei Kirlenko

its the only Nickname that makes sense.

"AK" the initials of Andrei Kirlenko
"47" His Jersey number
"AK47" after the famous Avtomat Kalashnikova Russian Rifle. Kirlenko is Ukranian, but close enough.

But is says a lot about a man named Michael if he's referred to as Mike and everyone knows who you're talking about. He didn't need a cool nickname, he was simply the guy. Anyway, Air Jordan is cool in my opinion, I also like His Airness and MJ, maybe it's just because it's Mike :shrug:

The Worm
The Big Dipper

It was always Air Jordan, although people tried to call him something else before Spike Lee and his commercials came along to cement the moniker.
