Haven’t got your team name sorted yet, still trying to think of a name to get a few laughs? Maybe we can help!
Resharded: In what is a combination between new Miami forward Rashard Lewis, and new Knickerbocker Rasheed Wallace, it is a friendly little pun in which you can laugh at two players in new places and will still fail miserably. Rashard is known as one of the most over-paid players in the game, while not many fans know why the Knicks brought Wallace back in the first place.
Super Monta Kart: Monta Ellis can be used in a couple of ways (See next name). This one just captured my eye straight away as I already have a profound love for amazing game that is of Mario Kart. Being Monta in Mario Kart wouldn’t be that bad either. The amount of shots he takes may transfer to how many shells he shoots.
The Full Monta: This one’s for the girls that play fantasy. From the wonderful chick flick, ‘The Full Monty’, where a bunch of guys....you know what. Now you see why it’s one for the ladies. It includes their fantasies, while including an NBA player so it fits the bill as a team name.
Nashed Potatoes & McGrady: Quite an easy one to decipher, this one gave me a few laughs once I read it, so imagine when your friends see your new name as this! Steve Nash is a welcome asset to any fantasy team, leading his...no, sorry, leading Kobe’s Lakers to what everyone thinks is a Western Conference Championship. McGrady on the other hand is no longer in the NBA (currently looking in China), however he’s a household name and this name could take the cake in your league.
Kobe Wan Enobi: This one is for all you Star Wars/NBA fans. What better way to bring them together. Although I’m no Star Wars fan, I still see the great name inside this. Obi Wan and Kobe are great compliments and this name could just roll off the tongue once you get a few rounds into your competition.
DNP: Coach’s Decision: One for later in the season. This is what you change your name to when you are dead last in your league. Can’t buy a win, have a bunch of injuries and are really struggling to keep going when you can’t seem to find an answer (and no, AI no longer plays in the NBA to be that Answer).
