It is also A's moniker as he's known to slither across the court and has a "killer instinct".

On removal of the first letter from B's name, C, a player known for his "lazy brilliance". C is known to have succumbed to D far too often, rather comically, in his life. E is the first person to have been ruled D by a person not on the field whose jersey number is hidden in his name.
