    Yup, it was actually a short-lived moniker also coined by Mico Halili that was later changed into The Rocketman which was more appropriate. Baguio will also be remembered as the other half of UST's Dunkin' Duo with Nino Gelig. :socool:

    The Bruise Brothers were actually the frontline crew of the San Antonio Spurs in '70's which included George Johnson, Dave Corzine, Kevin Restani, Mark Olberding, Reggie Johnson and Paul Griffin.

    Anybody here remember Ateneo center Mike Facundo? He didn't make it to the PBA but he was called The Terminator back in college.
    mick "the penis" penissi
    Or, Mick "the D-ick" Penissi.

    Years before Magic Johnson, there was Rudy "The Magician" Soriano. Jimmy Noblezada was the original Iron Man, and whatever happened to Rafael "Baby Boy" Morales and Emy "Kermit the Frog" Arcilla?

    I cannot fathom the wanton baptizing of basketball players with nicknames left and right. A player's nickname is earned through time, hard work and perseverance. Many players who don't deserve a nickname are suddenly forced to have one no matter how inane or corny it may be.

    Sometimes, a player does not need a nickname at all!
