Worst nicknames in NBA history


Any shortened name abbreviation e.g D-Rose, D-Wade, CB4 etc.

If you want to refer to NBA players as D-Wade, CP3, D12 etc (except Andrei “AK47” Kirilenko) that’s fine, just don’t call it a nickname. A nickname is supposed to show us a bit of the player’s persona, while abbreviations are just bland and lazy.
