2010-11 NBA Season | Blake Griffin Finally Has A Nickname: High GriffinitionCategory: Basketball
NBA superstars are usually given nicknames based on their play on and off the court.
Then, there’s the King of NBA Nicknames, Shaquille O’Neal. Just attach the word “Big” to anything and you’re good to go: The Big Aristotle, The Big Maravich, The Big Cactus and The Big Shamrock to name a few.
This season, Blake Griffin of the Los Angeles Clippers has taken the NBA by storm with his highlight dunks.
He has taken dunking to another level that he has become the Human Highlight Reel. Oops, that nickname was already taken by Dominique Wilkins.
For months, Griffin has been without a nickname and one is needed immediately.
Thankfully, the fans have spoken.
As voted by fans at NBA.com’s Dunk Ladder section, Blake Griffin will now henceforth be known as High Griffinition.
Yes, as in High Definition.
Personally, I would have liked it simply as The Griffin.
The Griffin is a legendary creature with the body of a lion and the head and wings of an eagle [Wikipedia].
On the other hand, High Griffinition sounds cool when used in a sentence.
“Presenting the Dunk of the Week, Blake Griffin posterizes Lebron James, in High Griffinition!”
What do you think?
UPDATE February 20, 2011: In High Griffinition, Blake wins the Sprite Slam Dunk Contest! Haha, this is becoming tiring already.
