Are there any other words that end in 霸 with the meaning of to "hog" something?

路霸 means 'road bully' in singaporean chinese, a guy who is rude towards other road users, horned unecessarily, showing middle finger, and/or beating up other road users when there is a dispute. generally a driver with a bad attitude, not really a road hogger.

semantic nuance

We sometimes use 鴨霸 to mean 霸道. It's derived from Taiwanese. It means the same as 霸道.

球霸,rather than just meaning someone who hogs the ball, also refers to the most influential player on a team. So Lebron (小皇帝) was a 球霸 at Cleveland (骑士队). But we will have to wait and see what will happen in Miami - I'm not expecting any change.

I wonder how many 球霸s you can have on one team in basketball or football/soccer?

Did they really call him 小皇帝 in China? Hahaha

Thanks for the info, by the way. :)
