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.

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?
