Tips To Choose Team Name:
Basketball team names are not selected just like that. They are not like naming a unicorn and one simply cannot pick up any name. Naming a basketball team is an elaborate process, and a lot of thoughts go into that.
The following are a few points that must be considered while naming your team:
If you have any sort of sponsorship for your team, then there is a good chance that the sponsor will want its name to be a part of the team name. Many sponsors appreciate having a clever pun or come up with a name that sort of touches up their business.
|Golden Eagles.||Hoops I Did It Again!||The Wingfoots.||New York Knicks.||Miami Heat.|
|Rainbow Warriors.||Nothing But Nets.||The All-Americans.||Philadelphia 76ers.||Orlando Magic.|
|Saxons.||LeBron’s Tutors.||The Caucasian Invasion.||Toronto Raptors||Washington Wizards.|
|Nanooks of the North.||Gang Green.||Average Joes.||Cleveland Cavaliers.||Denver Nuggets.|

However, this is easier said than done. Of course, you cannot tick off your sponsors, but do make sure you choose a name that highlights the team spirit.
Colors play a great role in choosing the name of the team. If you have blue and green in your team, then it would be silly to call your team the Reds! Rather it would make sense to call your team the “Bulgree: or so on. Many teams make use of colors to come up with a fun and catchy team name and that is an opportunity that even you can look into.
Many a time a team likes to follow the footsteps of their professional idols, thus they follow names like Celtics, Lakers, Bulls or such other names. You can also opt for traditional team names like Hawks, Tigers, Eagles and much more. If you find these names to be common, then you can always come up with more such names.
The element of Humour:
Mostly organized sports names do not incorporate a lot of humor in the team names, especially if it’s a high school or a college-level team; but exceptions to rules are always welcome! So, if you are in for that, then pick put a funny name that can turn a few heads.
If you choose to name your team after an animal then you can step away from a lot of controversies. A team named after animals do not hurt the public sentiment or the population demographics in any way.
For instance, the Gibbs Tarantulas in Nevada or the Bataan Military Academy in New Mexico are two very popular examples that you can look into.
Once you are prepared with these tips, its time to look at a few names that can be inspirational:
