The nickname controversy has been, perhaps, the most elaborate topic concerning Dejuan Blair in the past week. His play, of course, usually speaks for itself. In my last post, Dejuan Blair; Space Eater Extraordinaire I made a pretty good case for his space eater self.
Some suggested "The Black Hole"
For others, is was "Grizzly Blair." This was started at Pitt
His nickname growing up was "Big Fella," and will always be his hometown nickname.
However, spur fandom has seeked a new and fresh nickname. Blair Force One has emerged as the favorite, but let me introduce a marvel of the english language. Hidden in the pronounciation of his first name is, in fact, the sound of "one" in "Juan." Dejuan-->de"one"
whoa. meant to be?
Blair Force Juan. utilizes both his first and last name, while maintaining the integrity of the metaphor.
Let's not stop until we get an endorsement for him to do "Honey Dejuan Mustard-->A must for all Big Fella Burgers"
