It's just really lame and unoriginal.
Kadri and Hakeem play different sports so its different than your examples. Also, I love Hakeem and he is one of the greatest to play to center, however, his nickname isn't as transcendent as 'The Great One', 'Air Jordan' or Magic.

And, its what his teammates call him, hardly within anybodys control at this point. It's his nickname now.
