Hold on, hold on, what are you talking about? Who is German Racecar? Little Emperor? Well, let us explain: those are NBA players' nicknames in China.

"German Racecar" is Dirk Nowitzki, his ability to roll on court like a racecar, and he is, of course, from Germany. Meanwhile, China's Little Emperor is our "King James." For instance, do you want to know why Tim Duncan is called Stone Buddha? Scroll down. And while you're there check out the 10 Chinese nicknames we picked for you to vote on in our poll.

NBA.com has posted a sampling of some of the best nicknames fans in China have given their favorite NBA players and the reasons behind it.

If you read the linked page you will see that "Long Wang" is the romanized chinese phrase. It means "king of the dragons" (Wang = King in chinese, apparently. Also, Huang apparently means Emperor).
