Jeez people 76'ers = 1776.....you know.....declaration of independence, Independence Hall is in Philadelphia ......American Revolution..... Did most of the people on here fail history miserably?????
Magic is a great name inspired by Disney World in Orlando aka, "The Magic Kingdom"
Trail Blazers....yes, Oregon Trail.....again U.S History. Great name.
The Suns......if you ever went to Phoenix during the summer the only thing you would think of is the Sun because its always 110-119 degrees.
Cavalier is a mounted Knight, it is regal and majestic...and yes, Knights were tough.
Spurs....great name considering the area......spurs can really hurt you and they are a tough piece of gear. You couldn't name them the Alamos or the Boones....or the smelly Riverwalk.
I really WISH Utah would give the Jazz name back to N.O, it fits there and has never fit in Utah.....never will fit there.....they need something cold, mountainous or mormon
Pelicans is just idiotic, I have spent a great amount of time in New Orleans and have never spent a second thinking about Pelicans nor does anyone give a crap. Cajuns is great, Gators....tasty, yes I ate some. Crayfish, Oysters, Po-Boys
Bourbons.....Hurricanes are delicious drinks. Sinners...hey, now there is a name for you....if you have been to Bourbon Street then you get the sinners reference.....not to mention it counters the Saints Football team.....lol (just kidding with this
Maybe they will just reconsider the whole thing and name them "Sterns"
