Better Nicknames

The quality of NBA nicknames has seen a sharp decline in the last few years. We went from nicknames like Earl "The Pearl" Monroe, Earvin "Magic" Johnson, Gary "The Glove" Payton to Chris "CP3" Paul, Chris "CB4" Bosh, Deron "D-Will" Williams.

Looking at the nicknames of some of the PBA's (Philippine Basketball Association) players, the variety and creativity of the nicknames are a far cry from the current monotony lazy nicknames. Here are some of the good ones:

Allan "The Triggerman" Caidic

Ronnie "Point Laureate" Magsanoc

Benjie "The Tower of Power" Paras

Vergel "The Aerial Voyager" Meneses

Atoy "Fortune Cookie" Co

Samboy "Skywalker" Lim

Danny "Dynamite" Seigle

Hector "The Director" Calma

Mark "The Spark" Caguioa

Ricky Relosa and Yoyoy Villamin "Bruise Brothers"

Johnny "Flying A" Abarrientos

Ato "Atom Bomb" Agustin

Jimmy "Mighty Mouse" Alapag

Sonny "Big Punisher" Alvarado

Mark "Big Mac" Andaya

Paul "Kid Lightning" Artadi

Donbel "Felix the Cat" Belano

Egay "Billion Dollar Man" Billones

Ricky "The Quick Brown Fox" Brown

Paola "The Boogey Man" Bugia

Alex "Cool Whip" Cabagnot

Sonny "Mr. Quality Minutes" Cabatu

Nino "The Da Vinci of Dunk" Canaleta 

Mark "Captain Hook" Cardona 

Jerry "Defense Minister" Codinera

Dennis "Dennis the Menace" Espino

Bernie "The Sultan of Swipe" Fabiosa

Wesley "Wild Wild Wes" Gonzales

Rudy "The H-Bomb" Hatfield

Danny "Demolition Man" Ildefonso

Chris "Stonewall" Jackson

Abe "Chairman of the Board" King

Sunday "Weekend Warrior/Sunday's Special" Salvacion

Lordy "The Alaminos Assassin" Tugade

 

Not a single conjoined first and last name to be seen. We definitely need to think of some of these Clyde Frasier/Bill Walton-esque over the top clever nicknames for our guys
