looks like blake's new nickname is the poster child.

NBA.com calls him this and i just heard it on NBA Fastbreak on ESPN right now. i guess it'll catch on.

I like Blake "The Quake" Griffin. Smile

Someone called him that on here earlier.

The poster child is a horrible name. What happens when he's 25 years old?

I hate to see him fall in the same category as:

Backstreet boys or New Kids on the Block. Those names wear off and look stupid when you're old.

That's what I think of when I hear Poster Child. lol

I hate to see him as a "poster child" for men who have outgrown their name/nickname( pun intended).

Blake the Quake is NICE!

and CJ, i agree with you 100%. just the fact that the word CHILD is in there makes it a horrible nickname for BLAKE who makes highlights like a man no matter what age.

I'm still a fan of "Blake The Griffin." Simple, yet witty...

When I googled "poster child" google's autocomplete offered this definition:

"a child afflicted by some disease or deformity whose picture is used on posters to raise money for charitable purposes; "she was the poster child for muscular dystrophy" - wordnetwebdotprincetondotedu/perl/webwn

Is there a nickname less flattering or more inappropriate?

Yes!

Yeah, my video is just about done. I never thought of the nickname but I did have the title ready. "The Year of The Griffin"

I'm hoping to have it up by Friday night. Just waiting on an email and logo from Clippers.com to render it out.

It's sick. I have to say, this is the first video I am really happy with. You'll see about 80% of stuff you ain't seen on youtube.

the opener has moving 3d pics inside the title that's moving across the screen. I have 2 Griffins sitting on each end of the title and Blake appears in the background folding his arms. The definition of the Griffin comes onto the screen after the title fades out. You'll see.

If I don't hear from them by Friday afternoon, I'm posting it anyway. I'll just add the logo when i get it.
