The Truth is probably my favorite of players currently playing. Diesel is also one of Shaq's best and my all-time favorites along with Julius 'Dr. J' Erving and Earvin 'Magic' Johnson.

It's got to be Darryl Dawkins *Chocolate Thunder* or *Dr. Dunkenstein* from the Planet Lovetron..

Dude even had the class and sensibility to name his own dunks.. :)

Shaq will always have teh best nicknames whether retired or not. All you have to do is add a "The Big" in front of anything and it sounds awesome.

Can't wait for The Big Analytical to do TNT NBA thursdays. Also, Diesel is probably one of the best of all time.

even for nicknames there is so much homerism on psd!!!

gay nicks = cp3, kmart, rjax, td (can't people be more creative?)

best nick = the truth paul pierce (why? because it makes you think andconsider the merits of the name, it's subtle and unobvious, ambiguous)

My favorite of all time is for my favorite player... Skywalker and I don't mean Kenny Walker

My top five for no particular reason.. are

David "Skywalker" Thompson #1
George "Iceman" Gervin #2
Darrell "Dr Dunkenstein" Griffith #3
Jamal "Silk" Wilkes
Nate "Tiny" Archibald

The Glide, Pistol, The Stilt, The Pearl, The Dream, Downtown Freddy Brown, and The Hawk all were close... I guess I'm old school when it comes to NBA
