The Bigs!

Is it just me or has anyone else noticed that the new word is "bigs". Instantly the beauty of English and the black accented jargon of basketball has created a new noun out of an overworn basketball adjective, big.

The funny thing was, I think I was just telling my mother about how this new noun keeps creeping into the language, when sure enough, I turned a page in the NY Post and there was a headline with "Bigs" in it. Bigs, as in the forwards and centers of basketball or the power brokers and haves of finance.

So, forget the Big Leagues, I want to be in Bigs League.
