Nadimci su oduvek bili deo sporta. Jednom kada sportista dobije nadimak, teško je promeniti ga ili mu nadenuti novi. Međutim, najveće zvezde u NBA šampionatu, najjačoj košarkaškoj ligi na svetu, dobili su prilično snažnu, neobičnu, ali i pomalo vulgarnu „konkurenciju“ koja stiže iz Kine.

NBA liga je veoma popularna u istočnoazijskoj državi na čijoj teritoriji živi oko 20 odsto svetskog stanovništa, a to dobro pokazuju i brojne aktivnosti i promocije vrhunskih košarkaša iz Asocijacije koji svake godine putuju u Kinu kako bi obradovali veliki broj svojih navijača.

Popularnost NBA košarke u toj državi ne prestaje da raste, pogotovo nakon što je liga 2004. godine u Šangaju i Pekingu organizovala dve predsezonske utakmice kao deo serije „NBA China Games“ koja se sada održava svake godine, ali pre svega zahvaljujući prvom piku sa drafta iz 2002. godine, legendarnom Jao Mingu.

Bred Stivens, genije sa „lepoticama“ u završnici

Takođe, primetan je veliki porast broja američkih košarkaša u tamošnjim ligama tokom prethodnih nekoliko decenija, što je istovremeno doprinelo i razvijanju baze „okorelih“ navijača širom četvrte najveće države na planeti.

Međutim, kako većina stranih imena ne može savršeno da se prevede na mandarinski, najzastupljeniji jezik u Kini, mediji pokušavaju da ih transkribuju kao skup različitih kineskih reči, dok navijači smišljaju drugačija „rešenja“.

Uvrnuta, čudna i u najmanju ruku specifična rešenja.

Istoričar Nik Kapur objavio je na Tviteru prilično dugačku listu najneobičnijih nadimaka NBA zvezda koja dolaze iz Kine, a koja su privukla veliku pažnju u američkim medijima. Iako se nekoliko nadimaka verovatno neće svideti njihovim „vlasnicima“, postoje i ona koja bi mogla da zažive u SAD uzimajući u obzir specifičnu kulturu iz koje dolaze.
