Shaq challenges Apollo Creed on All-Time Nickname list; Chooses ‘Big Cactus’ over ‘Rotting Carcass’


Shaquille O’Neal, new center and IR entry for the Phoenix Suns, continued his quest to take over the All-Time Nickname title from Apollo Creed with the addition of at least one new moniker:  The Big Cactus.

The name adds to Shaq’s already plentiful portfolio of "The Diesel," "The Big Aristotle," "The Big Daddy," "Wilt Chamberneezy," "The Real Deal," "Shaq-Fu," as well as the "The Big Spender."

According to Hernia sources, Shaq narrowly decided on The Big Cactus over The Rotting Carcass.

Creed still leads the race with such dazzling nicknames as The Master of Disaster, The King of Sting, The Dancing Destroyer and (our favorite) The Count of Monte Fisto.
