TOP 5 GREATEST SPORTS NAMES OF ALL TIME
5. Chubby Cox – Philadelphia Kings
Birth name John, but when you’re getting playing cards with “Chubby” on it, well then that’s a nickname that has stuck.
4. Ivana Mandick – Charlotte Basketball
Brutal brutal name, face isn’t doing her any favors either.
3. Dick Trickle – Nascar, RIP

Gold standard. Probably won’t ever be beat, and I am totally fine with that. Love me some Rusty Kuntz all day everyday and twice on Sunday.
