New Nicknames For Dirk Nowitzki

The best part of last night’s Conan show was the appearance by the Dallas Mavericks’ Dirk Nowitzki, who administered the host a “Texas citizenship test.” During the bit, Dirk launched into a recitation of acceptable nicknames for himself, in addition to “The Dunking Deutschman.” We need to adopt one of these immediately:
