when i was playing golf in HS i got the nickname: silent striker. similar. when i got the award/paper plate during the banquet at the end of the year, my teammates put me on the spot and asked me to say something in front of everyone... so, i said "something" and sat back down. i couldn't think of anything else to say, but there was quite a few people who got a laugh out of it.
they call me lamar though because they think i don't live up to my potential. i show glimpses of greatness then hide lol. lamar has been criticized for that throughout his career. oh well, cant say ish to him now... he's a nba champion! lakers better re-sign him.
I never had a nickname - although, I never really played that often - never felt I was good enough. Oddly, I could always make a weird shot from the far corners of the court. I still managed to land baskets, nuthin' but net.
I never played basketball, but I was on the MTV website a very, very, very long time ago and they had this thing where you could type in your first name and it'd pick a streetball nickname for you...I typed in Lucas and got Lay-Up Larry.
