4. Clyde Drexler – “Clyde The Glide”
Not only does this lack creativity and rely on a simple rhyming scheme, it isn’t even English. Glide is a verb, friends – you can’t just stick an article in front of a verb and call it a noun. Maybe we could have gone the gerund route by switching it to “Gliding,” but then we lose that expert rhyming! We’re in a real pickle here, except we’re not, because no one has acknowledged this grammatical gaffe in 20 years.
Why wasn’t Clyde Drexler good enough? It’s a pretty sweet name by itself, but maybe people were fearful of confusing him with Walt “Clyde” Frazier. Who knows.
