Idea from the New Orleans thread.

Lets pretend that the NBA forced the Lakers to give their name back to Minny, what would be a good new name for the Lakers?

And other teams in the NBA.

The name given by the Chumash tribe of Native Americans for the area now known as Los Angeles translates to "the valley of smoke." Owing to geography, heavy reliance on automobiles, and the Los Angeles/Long Beach port complex, Los Angeles suffers from air pollution in the form of smog. The Los Angeles Basin and the San Fernando Valley are susceptible to atmospheric inversion, which holds in the exhausts from road vehicles, airplanes, locomotives, shipping, manufacturing, and other sources. The smog season lasts from May to October. Unlike other large cities that rely on rain to clear smog, Los Angeles gets only 15 inches (380 mm) of rain each year: pollution accumulates over many consecutive days.

Despite improvement, the 2006 and 2007 annual reports of the American Lung Association ranked the city as the most polluted in the country with short-term particle pollution and year-round particle pollution.

Lol, I'm a Laker fan but saying things like "The Greatest Franchise Ever" makes Laker fans sound like the biggest douchebags in all of sports.

We've won championships, awesome... But don't brag about it like it was something that you had to do with. Being cocky about it really gives us a bad name. Tacos.

I wasn't denying it but associating any modern city with smog is as obvious as saying that Buildings exist in Cities. The New York Knicks can be reneamed to the,"New York Smogs", too.

Yeah, but there's more of it in LA than New York....that's why LA is known for smog.

Last time I checked it's 2012 and you don't have a link to the report. You also stated that Smog exists more in LA than anywhere else, not just in the US. LA is not the most smog filled city in the world, that much I'm sure about.

here's an actual serious post with some thought:

Minnesota Lakers (obvious)
Charlotte Hornets (obvious)
Washington Bullets (obvious)
Memphis Blues (obvious)
Brooklyn Yorkers or Rebels or Knights
Los Angeles Mountain Lions or Coyotes

I'd also like for the Kings to do either:
a) move back to Seattle and be the Seattle Supersonics
b) move to Vegas (i know it won't happen) and be called the Las Vegas Blackjacks

Seattle Supersonics - Clippers
Bay Area Warriors - Warriors
New Orleans Jazz - Hornets
Utah Miners - Jazz
Memphis Blues - Grizzles
Orlando Tropic - Magico
DC Bulldogs - Wizards(why name them the Bullets its nearly impossible to own guns there! also theres no bearing arms there just keeping arms there) the hoyas are right there might as well change it up!

Not NBA-related, but still quasi-relevant:

When Wayne Huzienga was awarded a baseball expansion franchise for South Florida in the early 90s, he originally intended to name the team "The Florida Flamingos," complete with pink as the team color. :pity:

If it weren't for MLB stepping in and convincing him to go in another direction . . .
