jerome williams is the junkyard dog
Jan 19th, 2011 at 23:57 GMT
u forgot 'the quitness'

Jerome Williams is the Junkyard Dog, not Darrel Walker. You could have used "Sky" for Kenny Wallker. And speaking of Walkers, while Chet is acceptable for The Jet (in addition to Kenny Smith), you should also accept Jason (Eugene) Terry ...

wow, totally forgot about jerome williams...will add him.

Most of these nickname quizzes fail miserably, this is a really nice job!... a couple other faves: Chocolate Thunder, Round Mound of Rebound, The Rooster, White Chocolate, Black Mamba
Jan 20th, 2011 at 02:01 GMT
Some others you might consider: Isiah 'Zeke' Thomas, Harold 'Baby Jordan' Miner, Chris 'Birdman' Andersen, Tyrone 'Muggsy' Bogues, Robert 'Chief' Parish, Darryl 'Chocolate Thunder' Dawkins, Anthony 'Spud' Webb, Cedric 'Cornbread' Maxwell, John 'Hondo' Havlicek, Jamaal 'Silk' Wilkes, Earvin 'Magic' Johnson, Jason 'White Chocolate' Williams, Lloyd 'World B.' Free and my personal favorite Joel 'The Vanilla Gorilla' Przybilla. Also 'Pearl' could work for 80's point guard Dwayne Washington.

thanks guys. as far as the other nicknames: i refrained from using "baby jordan" for minor because they're might not be a less fitting nickname in sports history haha. and some of the others such as "spud" and "mugsy" were almost too obvious since we all refer to those guys as spud and muggsy, not anthony and tyrone. but there are definitely dozens of others. thanks for the comments, glad you enjoy the quiz.

Great quiz.. Also "The Matrix" is on the mavs not the magic
Jan 20th, 2011 at 17:28 GMT
ah, yes he is, good catch
Aug 12th, 2011 at 06:12 GMT
marvin webster = the human eraser. it's a good one to add
Aug 12th, 2011 at 13:12 GMT
Jordan also played for the Wizards.
Aug 12th, 2011 at 13:54 GMT
Do you hate the Raptors or something? You excluded the Raps from the list of teams on both Olajuwon and Jerome Williams.
Aug 12th, 2011 at 18:05 GMT
Jordan also played for the Wizards, Shaq for the Cavs, Malone for the Lakers, Payton for the Celtics and the Heat, Iverson for the Grizzlies, Wilkins for the Magic, Olajuwon for the Raptors, Arenas for the Warriors, Horry for the Suns, Frazier for the Cavs, Billups for the Knicks, Hardaway for the Heat, Mourning for the Nets, Kemp for the Cavs, Blazers and Magic, Francis for the Magic, Hamilton for the Wizards

Great idea for a quiz! You might want to force users to answer in order, so you can't just guess randomly. Also, "Hakeen" should be "Hakeem."
Aug 12th, 2011 at 21:25 GMT
Just leave off the nicknames that apply to 2 players. It's confusing with the teams, plus Walker doesn't work for one of them.
Aug 12th, 2011 at 21:36 GMT

Aug 12th, 2011 at 22:23 GMT
Worthless if you don't force players to answer in order.

i made the suggested changes, thanks for the input. although @pita, i'm not sure which ones your referring to, could you be specific? thanks.
