Dennis Rodman Nickname The Worm

Dennis Rodman Nickname The Worm - 25. “The Worm,” Dennis Rodman, Has there ever been more controversial, colorful player in the NBA than Rodman? He’s one of the best rebounders the sport has ever seen, but what’s with the nickname? Our intern thinks it's because Rodman grew a reported 13 inches in a single year! The real story is far less impressive. Apparently “The Worm” was given to Rodman as a kid by his mother for his wiggling while playing pinball.

"You know, a hibachi grill gets real hot. That's what my shot's like, so I've been calling it that: 'Welcome to the hibachi'." That’s what Arenas (a.k.a “Agent Zero,” “Eastern Assassin”) once shouted at his opponents when his shots were falling. But after Kobe Bryant ripped his poor shot selection, Arenas told The Washington Post he would supplant “the grill” with “quality shots.” Truth be told, a cook on the court is a cook on the court; “Hibachi” is where it’s at.

We could go on about Dale Earnhardt’s impact on the sport of stock car racing, but the man was a fearless force to be reckoned with on the track. He was aptly nicknamed “The Intimidator” after spinning out Bill Elliot in “The Winston,” a meaningless, non-points race.

After his war with Thomas Hearns and a controversial split-decision loss to Sugar Ray Leonard, Hagler retired from boxing and officially changed his name to Marvelous Marvin Hagler. You may recognize him from his spots for Pizza Hut and Gillete, but don’t be fooled; Hagler is one of the greatest middleweights to ever lace up the gloves.
Though it sounds more like a member of the Rat Pack’s entourage, “Donnie Baseball” is a pretty cool nickname for this Yankees great. Nine NBA All-Star appearances, two Slam Dunk titles, 26,668 career points, and 7,169 rebounds—we think that’s enough to warrant a nickname as conscientious as “The Human Highlight Film.”
