50 Best Fantasy Basketball Names

50 Best Fantasy Basketball Names

What's in a name?

If you're in a league with your buds from work, probably everything.

When choosing a fantasy basketball team name, you don't want to be that guy that simply chooses "Doug's Team," or "Best Basketball Team," or, even worse, "The Juggernauts." All of those names are super lame and show zero creativity; moreover, you're likely to get made fun of more throughout the season.

When looking for a fantasy basketball team name, make sure that you choose one that makes you chuckle. If it makes you chuckle, it'll probably make everyone else chuckle, and when everyone's chuckling, it'll be a great year. 

Also, it's best to keep the terms current. Nothing kills the league vibe faster than coming up with a name joining a reference from "The Brady Bunch" with a random player from the 60's that no one's ever heard of. You don't want to be that guy sitting there asking "Get it? GET IT?" No, they won't get it, and neither should you.

That being said, not all the names on this list have to do with current players, but all of them are well-known enough that even the most casual fan should understand what you're talking about. Here are a few of our favorites.
