He already said that Kobe is Batman, Nash (even though he's Canadian) is Captain America and Pau is Stretch.

Nice try though. Enticing to see how someone who rooted for a player for 8 yrs is now well....:rolleyes:


Oh, and it's "Nickname".

It's just the worst ever when players give themselves nicknames. Nicknames come from other people. I still can't believe 'black mamba' caught on. Just awful.

I agree. Whats even more sad is that Dwight called himself superman when that was Shaq and then he goes to the Lakers from Orlando. I mean is this a movie? Why would dwight ever do that idk

Ummmm.... Nicknames are supposed to be given to you by teammates, peers, colleagues, friends, sportswriters, commentators, etc. Dwight is a few bricks short of a load if you ask me. Douche 12 will always be his nickname for me.

lol i love that,

dwightmare is more appealing than ironman.. :D
i was thinking the same thing, it has a ring to it and doesn't have to be a negative, he is a monster defensively, #32 was magic with the ball in his hands (on defense he was just some guy named ervin) and #12 is a nightmare on defense,

You can't change your name to Iron man when your injured.lol i thought the same thing lol

Two problems with this:

#1 The NBA has already had an "iron Man"...it was A.C. Green.

#2 Giving yourself a nickname is wrong...very wrong.

'Spelt' and 'Spelled' are interchangeable in all forms of English besides American English. Everywhere outside of the United States that still uses English as a language views the two as synonyms.

Spelt is the past participle form of Spell in said English variants.

So stupid

First of all Nash is batman. He dresses up like Batman. Batman in the Justice League is more of a team player/facilitator with his large variety of gizmos

Kobe is Ironman if anything. Cocky but you got to love him

Dwight is the Hulk...stupid and destroys his previous team to secretly get on the team he wants, just like in the Avengers when he destroyed that flying carrier even though the Hulk had complete control of his anger

Actually, the Hulk is not stupid, his intellect is simply suppressed by his defcon level rage. We can't call Dwight the Hulk on those grounds.

Truth be told, Shaq is more like the Hulk, if you really think about it...especially now that he has his Ph.D. Big, giant, bulky, lumbering oaf that grunts and snots his way through dialogue, dares you to find anyone greater than himself ("Hulk is strongest one there is!!!!") and basically flies off the handle at the slightest criticism from gm's, coaches, owners, players, fans, or whomever.

Currently, yes, DC is the top dog. But back when I was a kid, Marvel trumped DC in every respect, from art to plots to characters. DC had the deeper pockets and as a consequence the more widely known heroes, but if you spoke to any true afficionado back in the day, Marvel was the better comics house.

Honestly, I think it's up to the fans to give Dwight a sobriquet. Ok, boys and girls, let's hear it. What do you think would be a good name for him?

If we're sticking with the superhero equivalency theme, let's go with...

1. Mr. Fantastic/ Plastic Man/ The Impossible Man (guys that I could never take seriously)
2. Ultron (created with the best intentions in mind, but turned into a true villain)
3. Doomsday
4. Darkseid (cool name)

Or we can give Dwight the name of any of the Superman analogues and clones, including (but by no means limited to)...

Icon; Bizarro; Ultraman; Mister Majestic; Supreme; Prime; Mon-El; Superboy (No, I don't advise calling any adult African American man "boy" if you have any decency at all... and/or value your life. I'm just throwing the name out there.); Superboy Prime; Captain Marvel (the guy who most of the public mistakenly calls "Shazam"); Captain Marvel, Jr.; Overman; Hyperion; Gladiator; Steel (whoops, scratch that...didn't Shaq play the character Steel in a movie???); Invincible; etc., etc., etc., etc.

Now if you'll excuse me, all of this Superman talk has made me nauseous.

He's far from Ironman since he's injured.

You'd think humans get smarter as they mature, but Dwight proves otherwise. Shaq was Diesel, Superman, and Shaq Foo. Superman was already taken, so he kind of needed a new nickname anyways. Itonman isn't suitable for an injured prone black guy.

Just like how Durantula stuck with Kevin Durant. You don't pick your nick names. For some reason people felt Superman would work with two big men and it stuck. He'll never be called Ironman.

This thread is so misleading. Dwight never said he was changing his nickname. The announcers suggested it and he just jokingly went along as they made references to the movie "The Avengers".

Calm ur *** down, no need to try and act all cool on PSD. Maybe ur just compensating for ur lack of social interaction in real life? Makes you seem like ur still scarred of the fact that every1 used to call you a loser in school LMAO.

Dwight has ALWAYS been an immature idiot (not on the court), and I've said that when he's in orlando, ill say it if he goes to Mars. Theres no question what he's doing shows he has some maturity issues. If you dont see that then you are probably less mature than him.

Immature is refereed to people that like having fun and only boring people seem to say it

So let Dwight be immature and fun you can keep being a boring regular average joe on psd
