    Top 10 nicknames to replace 'The Big Three'

    By Jared Zwerling

    Carmelo Anthony is tired of hearing that he and Amare Stoudemire [Only registered and activated users can see links. ] and Mike D'Antoni is tired of hearing Mike Woodson called [Only registered and activated users can see links. ]

    Well, we at ESPNNewYork.com were tired of hearing "The Big Three" reference in the NBA, and we weren't going to let that happen to Anthony, Stoudemire and Tyson Chandler.

    [Only registered and activated users can see links. ] we gave you some of our ideas for nicknames for the trio, and asked for your submissions. We received 1,110 comments by late Tuesday night, which easily broke the record for a Knicks blog post.

    The most popular nicknaming convention? Playing off a combination of their initials. Anthony provided flexibility as Melo or Carmelo.

    Here are the top 10:
    1. The MTA (reference to NYC's subway system)
    2. ATM (will they be money?)
    3. Broadway ACT III
    4. NY3 (a play on "NYC")
    5. The NYC Skyline
    6. The Triborough Trio
    7. The Broadway Bigs
    8. The Tri-scrapers
    9. MACLovin (a play on the McLovin character from the movie "Superbad")
    10. The Triple Threats
    Five notables: The Tri-STAT (a play on "tri-state" and Amare's "STAT" nickname), The STAT Squad, The Triple Towers, The Garden Gang and The Big Apples.


    Which do you like? Or what other names can you come up with?

    Greek mythological 3 headed wolf hound that guarded Hades' underworld realm from anyone attempting to flee.
