And freakin Clay Bennett among the ones blocking the sale of the Kings to Chris Hansen and bringing a team back to Seattle, Not that it would be nice for the fans at Sacramento... But hey, at least David Stern is gone!

Totally blanked on the Celtics but would never have thought of most of these. And I just can't keep track of the Hornets anymore, had no idea they were in New Orleans now (and that Charlotte had another team).

I think you should take "Sixers" for 76ers since they are quite often referred to as the Sixers.

He had a 1-hour TV special to break Cleveland fans' hearts. There was a 10 story poster of him in downtown Cleveland, which the police had to tear down because there were almost riots. Forget him. Michael is much better.

Denver Nuggets? Ha ha ha. I'm not from the US and I would have to say that is the funniest name for a team... where I'm from if you call someone a nugget it's because they are short and stocky (very un-basketball player like) or it's another name for poo!
Nov 25, 2012
(42)
No, silly goose! They are sponsored and named by McDonald's, to advertise for their chicken nuggets. Just kidding. They're named after gold nuggets that were found in the West.

Makes sense though as the Charlotte area is known as the "hornet's nest". Now the Jazz, Lakers, and Grizzlies need to change their names.

Quiz needs to be updated as the Bobcats have officially become the Hornets.
May 22, 2014
(20)
The Charolette hornets are now the Charolette bobcats
May 24, 2014
(20)
Misspoke I guess they went back to being the hornets after their short stint being the bobcats.
May 24, 2014

The Charlotte Hornets moved to New Orleans and lived life as the New Orleans Hornets for a number of years before switching names to the Pelicans. The Charlotte Bobcats were a new franchise that popped up after the Hornets left. When the New Orleans franchise changed names, it opened up the ability for the Bobcats to switch names to the Hornets. So, much like the Cleveland Browns circa 1999, these are two completely different franchises that end up being named exactly the same thing.
