Default Player Nicknames... Both Known And Unknown

What are some nicknames that are used for players on your team? I was just thinking about all the nicknames of Blazer players and thought that most teams must have little nicknames for several players.

What nicknames come to mind?

Here's some for the Blazers...

Brandon Roy: "The Natural" & "The Reason"
Rudy & Sergio: "The Spanish Connection" & "The Spanish Armada/Air-mada"
Travis Outlaw: "Troutlaw" or "Trout" or "T-Law"
Raef LaFrenz: "Raef LaFrenz Expiring Contract (RLEC)" & "LaCapspace"
Joel Przybilla: "The Thrilla" & "The Vanilla Gorilla"

I've always wondered, why is he named Boobie? Does the story involve a strip club?

nah he's been in uniform and ready to play for the past 3 games, he just never plays anymore. the sprained ankle only kept him out of 2 games. he lost the backup center spot to boone. i figured that would happen as soon as boone came back, but i was a little pissed at frank when he didn't even put stro in for the garbage time yesterday. even najera got to play.

He really should play IMO. Boone is complete garbage, a slightly quicker version of Jason Collins. But Frank likes to play Collinsesque players, doesn't he?
