Default Anybody think Oden needs a better nickname than G.O.?

I hate the initials being used as a nickname. With Oden's it would make sense for a super quick guard, but not for pretty quick center. So what are some nicknames we could try to get started?

One I heard and love: Hightower. I just heard this today and I think it is great. First, the name itself sounds like a nickname for a tall powerful man. Not only that, but the nickname came from Police Academy's Bubba Smith. In Police Academy, Hightower was a big powerful man with a humble attitude. I think it is perfect and would love for it to catch on.

The one I've heard a lot, and I like, is "Judge Oden". I can see it. Whenever he gets a good block it would be, "And the Judge says OVERRULED!!"

I like High Tower, but its not very catchy. Like B-roy rolls off the tongue, vanilla gorilla is funny, but High Tower doesn't lend itself to that category... still a good name though.

I'm not a fan of "B-Roy" either. I like nicknames that somehow describe the player. Brandon's "The Natural" nickname is good though.

I think we should think any "mainstream" nicknames untill he has proven to be any good at this level.

Or us Blazer fans can give him a nickname and leave it to the rest of the nation as to whether they want to spread it.
