Best nicknames

Message Bookmarked
Bookmark Removed

I was lying awake in bed last night and to pass the time I tried to recall as many of the truly great nicknames of nba players, by which I do NOT mean such bland or obvious nicknames as 'Shaq' for Shaquille, or K-Love for Kevin Love. I had more in mind:

The Worm
The Admiral
The Mailman
The Stilt
The Big O
Big Country
The Iceman
Magic
Tiny

Please add your own to this list. We could poll them, but the winner would probably be the one with 2 votes instead of the eight others with 1 vote.

Walt "Clyde" Frazier is a personal favorite, Wikipedia reveals the story behind the name

While playing for [the Knicks], he picked up the nickname "Clyde" because he wore a hat similar to that of Warren Beatty, who played Clyde Barrow in the 1967 movie Bonnie and Clyde.[6] He was named to the NBA All-Rookie Team in 1968.
