    Larry Brown = "L.B." a.k.a. "Pound for Pound"

    Phillip Saunders = "Flip"

    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

    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

    These were all my favourites.

    Especially BoT. Pretty sure I never wrote his name or abbreviation again after this was first written.
