"The Big Witness" In Lead for Shaq's New Nickname

Posted By on Thu, Jul 9, 2009 at 12:53 PM


Yesterday, the Cavs announced that Shaq had narrowed down choices for a new nickname to two options: The Big Witness or Shaqalier. They've put it to an internet vote, and as of right now, The Big Witness is dominating. No surprise, as Shaqalier is both a) Lame and b) Cumbersome, even though it's a single word.

When voting concludes, expect new t-shirts at the team shop and on-line immediately.
