FUN PLAYER, AWFUL PRECEDENT:

RIP Chocolate Thunder: Former NBA star Darryl Dawkins dead at 58 (Matt Bonesteel August 27, 2015, Washington Post)

Dawkins bestowed nicknames on his dunks. The first backboard-shatterer was dubbed "The Chocolate-Thunder-Flying, Robinzine-Crying, Teeth-Shaking, Glass-Breaking, Rump-Roasting, Bun-Toasting, Wham-Bam, Glass-Breaker-I-Am-Jam." There were other nicknames: "In Your Face Disgrace," "The Go-rilla," "Earthquaker Shaker," "Candyslam," "Dunk You Very Much," "Look Out Below," "Yo Mama," "Turbo Sexophonic Delight," "Rim Wrecker," "Greyhound Bus" (for when he went coast-to-coast), "Cover Your Head," "Spine Chiller Supreme," "Slam Bam Thank You Ma'am" and "Walk Away From Love."
