Well, it happened. The NBA successfully, or unsuccessfully, held it's first "Nickname" game which saw the Brooklyn Nets hold off the Miami Heat in double OT.

The game was really good, late, but the nicknames were awful throughout. Initials don't classify as nicknames. Neither does "Sweet Lew," Rashard Lewis.

There are a ton of great nicknames in the NBA though, and here are the Top-10. Any we missed?

Vince Carter: Vinceanity. 

Kobe Bryant: The Black Mamba

Kevin Durant: Durantula

Brian Cardinal: The Custodian. 

Paul Pierce: The Truth

DeMarcus Cousins: Boogie

Tim Duncan: The Big Fundamental

Kenneth Faried: The Manimal

Kevin Garnett: The Big Ticket

Shawn Marion: Matrix
