    Nicknames make a man. Or something like that. Either way nicknames are a cool way to celebrate players. Sometimes players are remembered by their nicknames! But not all nicknames are good. That being said I present to you, readers, the coolest and best NBA nicknames of the past decade.​
    Honorable Mentions- Paul (The Truth) Pierce, Jason (White Chocolate) Williams, Tim (The Big Fundamental) Duncan, Shaun (The Matrix) Marion, Tracy (T-Mac) Grady, Dwyane (Flash) Wade, Steve (Hair Canada) Nash
    10. Kenyon (K-Mart) Martin- This nickname didn't take a lot of work but it honors one of the greatest shops of all time. ​
    9. Kobe (Black Mamba) Bryant- Sure its corny but it sounds cool and is very marketable. ​
    8. Manu (Obi-Wan) Ginobili- I probably said this like over 50 times today. It's just that cool. ​
    7. Brian (The Custodian) Cardinal- Its a new way of saying getting down and grabbing loose balls and rebounds. ​
    6. Chris (Birdman) Andersen- Chris has really taken to the nickname. Just ask his million tattoos. ​
    5. Andrei (AK-47) Kirilenko- That nickname makes me want to go run and hide when he comes driving down the court. ​
    4. Gilbert (Agent Zero) Arenas- His nickname was inspiring, he talked about how wearing Zero represented the hardship he overcame. That was before the whole gun incident. ​
    3. Rafer (Skip 2 My Lou) Alston- His nickname comes from his street ball days where his incredible moves made him a legend. His nickname "Skip 2 My Lou" comes from one of the moves. ​
    2. Allen (The Answer) Iverson- The name makes you feel safe drafting him and having him on your team. While he wasn't the answer in Philly or Denver he was still a decent player who just couldn't answer the question of winning a championship.​
    1. LeBron (King) James- You can't argue with the king!​

    I like nicknames that don't claim how good someone is, unless they've earned it. King's usually lead there people to victory, something the "King" Lebron can't do. The "Answer" had zero answers for anything, except jack up another 3 pointer.

    Hello darkness, my old friend
    "White Chocolate" was an awesome nickname for the floppy-haired, fancy passing Jason Williams. It didn't really fit the "more disciplined" buzz cut version of him.

    So while the nickname, I guess, qualifies as the "last decade," I think it was really only good in the late-90s.
