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.
