Zach Lowe had comedian Joe Mande on his podcast and they spent some time going over how stupid some NBA team names are and gave them new ones, it was good stuff; LA Prius's, Orlando chain-restaurants, etc. You get the point. Here's the link if you want to listen: http://grantland.com/the-triangle/the-lowe-post-podcast-zach-lowe-and-joe-mande/

What are the worst names? What would you re-name them? Serious or fake both fly.

Off the top of my head - I'm not a big fan of naming a franchise after a date, so I'd ax the 76ers and go with Philadelphia Fresh Princes.

Boston being named the "Celtics" is pretty strange if you think about it. A team of mostly black players named after essentially midieval Irishmen? Awkward. I'd name them the Boston... Tea Pahhhtiers.

And yes I will use this as my personal sounding board if nobody else wants to play.

The Sacramento Guerrilla Growers.
The Milwaukee Beers.
The Detroit Detritus.
The Cleveland Dreamers.
The Utah Latter Day Saints.
The Washington Bullets (Seriously; there are so many arms companies around D.C., and there's a song by that name by The Clash.)

The Portland Overeducated White People.

The Miami Papis

Actually in reality the Heat and Blazers are two names I'd keep, along with GS Warriors, Phoenix Suns, SA Spurs, Detroit Pistons, Houston Rockets and Charlotte Hornets. The rest would get the hose.

Utah had no business keeping the name "Jazz" when the team was moved from NO.

The Bulls and the Grizzles should swap names since the NFL has the Bears and the MLB has the Cubs.
