The Big Question for the Cleveland Cavaliers: What Will Shaq's New Nickname Be?

James BoydContributor IJune 30, 2009

Over his many years in the NBA, Shaquille O'Neal has become an international man of mystery, the master of disguise, and a consummate champion.

As his career heads to a new location, it's time for, "The Big Diesel/Aristotle/Cactus/Banana/Daddy/Elvis" to add another prefix to his many nicknames.

Here are some suggestions:

 

The Big H.O.R.S.E. aka The Shaqtallion Stallion

This is due to Shaq's love of playing H.O.R.S.E against that guy from youtube.com. This is also because of the fact that King James will be riding him to a championship.

 

Sir HacksALot

This nickname would fit because he will get hacked in the NBA Finals, while trying to help King James find the Holy Grail.

 

Shaquaman

Dwight Howard may have taken over Shaq as the league's Superman, but never fear. There are plenty of other heroes he can be like, such as Aquaman, given the amount of lakes in Cleveland.

 

The Big Enterprise

Shaq may be planning to be Scottie Pippen to Captain James' Tiberius Shirk (also from Ohio).

 

Shaqtimus Prime

The reason I chose this name is because it's just too cool. 

Do you have any other ideas? Feel free to post them in the comments.
