Old School Nicknames

By Lance Tominaga, ESPN Honolulu Web Editor.

The NBA has always had its share of great player nicknames. In the past, we’ve had Wilt “The Stilt” Chamberlain, Earvin “Magic” Johnson, George “The Iceman” Gervin and, of course, “Doctor J” Julius Erving. In today’s league, we have a “King,” “The Brow,” “KD,” “PG-13” and even a “Greek Freak.” We thought it would be fun to test your knowledge of some of the great nicknames of past NBA players. Match each player with his correct nickname. Good luck!
