And I think it is "Air Orange."

Exhibit A: Jerami referenced Air Orange on Instagram in a post featuring a screen grab of his vicious put back.

Exhibit B: The Baye flapping of his "wings". Everyone thought it was out of place. However, maybe this is a reference to Air Orange...a nickname that the team has seemingly coined.

I rest my case.

I think Baye's wing flapping gesture was essentially a taunt against BC and its fans. The BC student section did the wing flapping motion during their free throws, kind of like the fluttery fingers thing that our student's do during our free throws. It must be a BC thing but also seems to be ripped straight out of the Napoleon Dynamite Happy Hands Club (or vice versa).
