Actually, the Bruise Brothers to us homers.
Thanks guys, keep'em coming. I'll make this a resource for younger/newer fans.
Clifford Robinson = "Uncle Cliffy," or just plain "Uncle" Rick Carlisle = "RC Cola" or just "Cola" Larry Brown = "L.B." a.k.a. "Pound for Pound" Phillip Saunders = "Flip" Tim Duncan = "Potato Face" (complete with jingle) ps. i'm glad we don't call Rip "Turbo."
Yeah, Turbo was pretty bad. I'm glad it didn't stick. If it did, we would probably have to call Chauncey Lazer. Oh, theres another one: Batman and Robin for Billups and Hamilton
Tony Delk = Tony Lambada
We need to update this with the current Piston nicknames....
I love it when people volunteer. Good luck with this project Bill!
I will get it started: Call him "The Mayor," the nickname given to Colorado combo guard Spencer Dinwiddie because of his calm demeanor, his mature mustache, and of course his exceptional ability to run the show on and off the court
I need to bookmark this thread.
Here's what I have found so far. Feel free to add anything I've missed. Joel Anthony fans call him the Warden, teammates call him Doc Butler Tough Juice Caldwell-Pope KCP Dinwiddie Mayor Drummond Dre Jackson ?? Jennings Pterodactyl, Doo Bee Doo Lucas III JL3 Martin ?? Meeks The Jodiac Killer, Jodiac Arrest, The Meekster, Air Jodie Miller ?? Monroe Moose Prince Tay Tolliver A-Train, A.T., Train, AT&T Long Distance, A-Tizzle Williams The Landlord

"The Jodiac Killer"? Really?
Killing the offense from deep.
Spellcheck is the coolest one of all.
These were all my favourites. Especially BoT. Pretty sure I never wrote his name or abbreviation again after this was first written.
Ben Wallace - Big Ben Walter Hermann - Fabio Will Bynum - Bynumite and, of course: T-Mac and The Answer :D
