Don't forget The Glove! Currently only says "GP"

PS: I can't believe Danny Fortson never had a nickname, other than the one we gave him.

PPS: I would personally prefer this sorted by player name.

I swear KC tried to call Askew THE MUMMY because of his "deceptive quickness". I have, of course, no proof of this, and was smoking a lot of pot at the time.

Don't forget THE MAD RUSSIAN, Tom Meschery! http://articles.latimes.com/2009/nov/09/sports/sp-crowe9

Glove omission was an Excel/Blogger transferral mishap. I've added Mad Russian. Also, now alphabetized by player last name.

From Facebook follower Rahim Lalji:
- Desmond Mason- "The Cowboy"
From Thaison Verasiri
- Rashard = Quiet Man, from Kevin Calabro

raf said...

Calabro would refer to Ruben Patterson as "The Sky Pilot." I don't think it caught on elsewhere, but then again, the only person who called Rube the "Kobe Stopper" was himself.

From Thaison Verasiri:
- Steve Scheffler = The Chef

Have added nicknames for Mason, Patterson, and Scheffler, as well as a few others. For some reason a bunch didn't come through the first time I uploaded it(e.g., Patterson).

Unsure if The Blade is acceptable for Rashard Lewis. I seem to recall it but I can't reference to it anywhere. If no one else is aware of it, I'll remove it.

Added Dick "Duck" Snyder to list. Beginning to think the back of old basketball cards may be the best source of info on this subject.
