Chris Kaman is now a Portland Trail Blazer. As such, he has some new gear, as tweeted out by the Blazers equipment staff.

His shoes are pretty unremarkable: Nike Hyperfuse in the team colors of red, black, and white. Nothing to see here ... wait, Air Sasquatch? What?

Yes, the burly and bearded 7-footer has Air Sasquatch on the tongues of his shoes, so it appears The Caveman has now taken a nickname that is befitting of his new home. 

The "air" part may be a little generous, though - Kaman dunked just nine times in 39 games last season and has dunked just 4.8 percent of his field goals over the last three seasons. But that's the point, really. Kaman is hilarious, and Air Sasquatch might be the most ironic nickname in the NBA now.
