Chinese nicknames are rad!

Have you ever heard Amare Stoudemire talk about how his nickname in China is something along the lines of Great Leader King? Pretty funny. Then I saw something great at NBA.com on the topic:

A Recent Description on NBA.com of NBA Player's nicknames in China. Please read, it is definitely the best thing on NBA.com, although sadly there is no mention of Amare.


The best part is the descriptions of what the nicknames mean, for example Boris Diaw is called "The French Magician." I thought to myself, "But why?" I was about to shoot myself in the face because I couldn't decipher the meaning of such an ambiguous nickname. Luckily, NBA.com thought ahead, and explains:

"Diaw's ability to play basketball as if playing magic. And he is a player from France."

Oooooooh! Now it all makes sense! Now let's find out the reason Dirk is called the German Racecar:

"Dirk's ability to roll on court like a racecar. And he is a player from Germany."

For the record, Tim Duncan has by far the best one, Stone Buddha. Awesome. I'm calling him Stone Buddha from now on, maybe if some marketing people got ahold of this he could sell some shoes. And why is there nothing for Yao here?


As usual, NBA.com made more omissions besides Mr. Great Leader King and Yao. Most notably, my research turned up this very interesting one:

Zach Randolph
Nickname: Indiana version of Will Ferrell from the Cowbell SNL Skit
Explanation: Zach might sound ok if you don't listen too closely, but he's ultimately a misfit, damaging to the group, and not really needed for the future. And he is a player from Indiana.

This can't have effect in reality, that's what I think.
