Blake "Bigfoot" Griffin

I've seen hundreds of monikers and threads across the interwebs (and even this site alone) attempting to nick a name for BG (this is nothing new). I was reading my latest issue of SLAM last night (Rondo on the cover) and they have a contest for a gift from the SLAM vault for the person who can create the best name for Blake (the hottest man in America needs a name).

I remember when SP first penned "Blake Superior" last year and I think it's still my favorite. My only beef is that while probably the most apt (and catchy) name, it doesn't get the toughness I think a nickname for BG deserves

Half-asleep last night, I started trying to pen my own. I was trying to think of something that captured the toughness, and had some kind of alliteration going on.

Bigfoot is described in reports as a large hairy ape-like creature, ranging between 6–10 feet (2–3 m) tall, weighing in excess of 500 pounds (230 kg), and covered in dark brown or dark reddish hair.

Plain-old Bigfoot Griffin: The "BG" in Big includes the letters of his name. Not to mention the fact that shoe companies would be ALL OVER a marketing campaign for basketball shoes involving the two words "BIG" and "FOOT"

Anyway, just throwing my nickname in the hat; feel free to dismiss another attempt at a nickname for our boy (I'm sure we're all tired of these threads).
