With his well publicized retirement underway, former NBA player Shaquille O’Neal asked for suggestions for a new nickname on Twitter on Thursday.

The self-described “emperor” of social media said “I need a new nickname” for his impending retirement.

Over the years, the future Hall of Famer had a multitude of nicknames such as “The Big Aristotle,” “Superman,” “Diesel,” and “The Big Baryshnikov."

Shaq on Wednesday posted the news that he is retiring on his Twitter account, where he has nearly four million followers.

He said that the front-runner nickname is “The Big 401K.”
