why not?
Because Magic has become his name. He would probably introduce himself as Magic. Alex Rodriguez wouldn't introduce himself as A-rod.

Magic Johnson has part of his real name in it. It's basically like Babe Ruth or Yogi Berra.

Dr J and RGIII are total replacements for the real name. You never see "RGIII Griffin"

IMHO A-Rod has been A-Rod so long he's approaching that Dr J-RGIII level.

That's the whole stupid point of this stupid thread -- to see who would stupidly qualify under that stupid criterion

What if he doesn't? What if he introduces himself as Earving?

I agree, but the other day someone on here was saying "who the hell even knows him by that? Aaron Rodgers is the only ARod anymore."

re: Athletes better known by nicknames


Years and years ago at the Pebble Beach Pro-Am, Dr. J was playing and we were following him because he was signing autographs.

Most people got..."Dr. J #6" as the autograph.

A classmate of mine chased him down after he'd teed off...and was yelling..."Dr! Dr!"

Dr. J. stopped and signed the paper..."Julius Erving" in big cursive.

My friend acted disappointed.
