It's been quite clear to sports fans and media personalities that freakish Clippers forward Blake Griffin is in dire need of a proper nickname -- and not just something as mindless as "B-Griff." We're frankly surprised it has taken us this long to come up with the fitting name, especially since it's been sitting under our nostrils all along in his own namesake:
"The griffin is a legendary creature with the body of a lion and the head and wings of an eagle."
It's really that simple.
Blake Griffin is The Flyin' Lion.
*Yes, we realize it says head of an eagle, but look how happy he is with that lion's hair. We couldn't talk him out of it.*
