Default Funniest NBA nicknames? (complimentary or insulting)

My vote:

"Wince Harder"

Must be the funniest NBA nickname I've ever heard.

'Wallets' for Ben Wallace. It was created by someone on this board, Bizarro, I think and even if he didn't, it's still the best I've heard.

Now that is funny, and the more so because it's basis is in fact.

Side note: is Bosh in particular, or the Raptors, or the NBA, very popular in China? Before or after Yao Ming was drafted?

Or do you just speak Chinese and translated it yourself?

I heard a poster on this boad (don't remember who) refer to Kobe and Shaq as: Snaq and Ms.Bryant

I think must've choked on whatever I was eating or drinking because I laughed so hard.

She-mac! I've never heard that one before!

Some of us Clipper fans used to call Wang Zhi-Zhi, Donger. One of his nicknames was really Dodger for some reason, so we arranged it to make it sound more Chinese.

Ben Wallet makes me laugh the most because I can kind of picture him embracing the nickname....like him reading this message board and smiling, as if to say, "hell yeah, I'm rich...Ben Wallets baby!"

Exactly. The best has to be "Wallets". The only case in NBA history where a nickname can be loved by both the haters and the player himself. Genius.

"Big Dog" is another great one. It's just a shame Glenn Robinson stole it from Antoine Carr. I'm also 100% sure it was always Shaq's #1 choice for a nickname.
