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
