Default Kobe needs a nickname

Allen "the answer" Iverson
Kevin "the big ticket" Garnett
Vince "half man half amazing" Carter
Steve "Nasty" Nash
Dirk "Dirty" Nowitzki
Michael "Filthy"Finley
(thats a nice combination of nickname's when said together: Nasty Nash, Dirty Dirk & Filthy Finley)
Dwayne "Flash" Wade (imo should be "The Blade" it just has a better ring to it)
Lebron "king" James
Shaquille "the diesel" O'neal
etc........

and the list goes on

Now this is not a thread about debating whether Bryant is the best player in the nba or whether he's hall of fame worthy or not, and neither is it a thread that should take a twist where everyone post rape trial jokes like Kobe "the rapist" Bryant. It's just simply about coming up with a name for a player who for the very least is at least deserving of a nickname due to the fact that I cant think of a player of his caliber in the history of the league that went without one (and for those of you that are going to search intently to find a star guard that did not have a nickname just to prove me wrong, you're wasting your time, because I Know that you know as well as I that he's deserving of one). So Post your choices along with a brief explanation of why you feel it fits him.

I'll start

KOBE "THE SHOW" BRYANT - plain and simple he's the only player that's drawing celebrities out of their homes to see the purple & gold, he's the reason why Jack is still renewing his season ticket, he's the reason why the lakers get the most televised games, and the reason they're still playing on christmas, he's the reason why Phil is back, he's the reason why shaq and phil was gone in one season (it's not to glorify this as much as it is to ask what other player has that kind of pull), he's the reason why kids that never seen Jordan play practiced, he's the reason why the bar is raised and 40 points aint that impressive anymore, he'll be the reason why Karl Malone will be number three on the all time scoring list, he's even the reason some of you log on to ish everyday, and most importantly he plays for a team that goes by the lakeshow, except in kobe's case he doesnt play for the lakeshow, he is "THE SHOW".

No, 24 K as in 24 karate gold / 24 Kobe. Also the Lakers colors. 24/7 combo nickname for Odom / Kobe. It flows.

1 of those nicknames is someone else's. And buckets really isn't a nickname. "Lord of the Rings" came from his nickname from the Rucker.
