Brian Scalabrine: VEAL (K-Mart gave this to Brian. It was shortened from Veal Chop because he used to get called for like 8902890 fouls his rookie year)

Nenad Krstic: CURLY (Vince apparently didn't know his name was Nenad for the first month with the Nets because everyone calls him Curly.

He only as The Black Mamba because he was the cover of Slam. I never heard before that magazine was published. Another nickname we forgot to mention is David Robinson - The Abmiral

That nickname was going around way before the SLAM cover. Its just that a lot o non-Laker fans didn't know about it before the SLAM cover. Phil started calling him the Black Mamba during training camp I believe.

Really. You learn something new everyday. It's just because i've wathed a few lakers game this season and I didn't hear the announcers calling him The Black Mamba whatsoever.
