Before the NBA season started, Slate.com listed down the most common fantasy basketball team names in leagues hosted by ESPN.com.
Aside from the obvious ones: Black Mamba, Fear the Beard, and King James (yawn), there were real gems such as James of Thrones and Better Call Gasol for the TV series junkies and Rose Before Hoes, Pippen Ain’t Easy, and Wake and Blake for the R-18 crowd.
Slate.com also listed down top fantasy names that reference a player from each NBA squad, which included Dirk Knight Rises and Noel Diggity.
Fantasy basketball is now on its fifth week, but that doesn’t mean you can’t change team names on the fly. Here are some suggestions:
Food: Duncan Donuts; Frosted Blakes; Swaggy P’s and Carrots
Haters: Bosh Spice; Cannot Faried; Queen James; Risky Rubio; Lala’s Honey Nut Cheerios; Dirk Nowinski
TV shows/movies: The Big Deng Theory; Zero Marc Thirty; Russel and Flow
