It's isn't my team, but "Redskins" has got to be changed. To anything else.

Not my team, but I saw on some board one time a poster saying the Bobcats owner should have named the team something gangsta such as the Charlotte Ruff Ryders.Would be awesome.

OKC Tomahawks....that would be clean and it would fit since Oklahoma is "Native America".....but you know those dickweed indians would complain. It's pretty sad that you have to watch what you name sports teams becuz it offends people.

Wouldn't Spurs be offensive to white people? How about Raptors? Wouldn't that offend dinosaurs? When you really think about it, every single name could offend somebody. It's become a freaking joke. I wish we could tell em to stick it right up their *****.:flag:

Lakers and Jazz should have been changed a long time ago. Neither has the slightest thing to do with the towns they are in now. And there aren't a lot of Grizzlies around Memphis, while we're at it. There has to be something for these teams to reflect the local flavor a little.

The Lakers is a household name now. I couldn't imagine being called anything else. Somthing like the Los Angeles Showtime sounds cool :cool:

Golden State Warriors might be the best name in pro sports, that's one thing about my team I DON'T want to change.
Although the Golden State PleaseLordMakeNelsonDisappears is a close second.

LA Beachers? Stars? Cheesy=yes

Utah Jazz (gone)
New Orleans Hornets (should be the jazz)
Utah Moutain??
Toronto Raptors - orginally thought they should be the Toronto Thunder, because they average Thunder every other day, and there has never been a Raptor further North than Phoenix. Now I like the Toronot Huskies (which was their orginal name when the first ever NBA game was played between them and NY)
Names that don't make sense for the team anymore..
-Lakers
-Jazz
-etc

"Los Angeles bumdunleavy" sounds better than clippers. This is a tribute to great dunleavy because of the man crush on him by the owner.

Completely agreed. I also agree with people saying that New Orleans should be called the Jazz. I also wouldn't mind if Chicago's team name was the Jazz, since that is where jazz music originated I think.

Now, about the Lakers. A Laker was an ocean going vessel, which was also small enough to navigate lakes. Since Los Angeles is located next to the largest ocean on Earth, the name Lakers still applies ;)

We could also claim to be named after Freddie Laker, who was a British man who did something revolutionary for air travel (although I'm not sure what it was). This applies because there is a large airport in Los Angeles :p

Washington Bullets - Hopefully Ted Leonsis will change the name when he buys the team, although it might be hard going back to the Bullets with the whole Gilbert Arenas thing.

You Laker's fans are absolutely full of yourselves, and have no class.

"I'd name my team Los Angeles BestTeamEverInTheWholeWideUniversesHistory."

What kind of a statement is that?

Seriously, grow up, stop riding the Lakers like a horse for God's sake.

OT : I'd probably keep the Orlando Magic the same. 'Magic' is a cheesy name, but a classic nonetheless.
