Commanders is the only answer.

Runner up is Real Salt Lake

my favorite part of the new name is that 99% of Indians fans had never heard of the bridge gargoyles that are supposedly a relevant landmark

Commanders
Wild
Bobcats
Guardians

Bonus to the Calgary Flames who are named after the Atlanta fire of 1917 but kept the name even though they have no connection to it

I remember thinking the first time (and every time) I heard this

Is there a Fake Salt Lake?

Ravens is terrible… but Baltimore doesn’t have a lot of options aside from a drunken poet’s downward spiral.

my fave part of this bullshite has to be the fact that ownership blatantly ripped off the horrific Guardians name/logo from a local coed roller derby team lmfao

Utah Jazz??? I mean come on… we know how the Mormons are up there.

Give it back to New Orleans where it belongs

LA Lakers? Los Angeles doesn't even have creeks, let alone any lakes.

Pelicans is pretty bad. I’d say Guardians is 1 and Pelicans is 1b

I'm being honest, the Lakers are a pretty terrible nickname. It just so happens that they are one of the most storied sport franchises in all American sports.


It’s the alliteration… L.A. Lakers rolls off the toungue

Real is Spanish for the word Royal….they copied the name from Real Madrid. Might as well have used the Chinese version of the word…it’s just as ridiculous

Fan of the team but nobody will ever convince me that the Houston Texans isn't the dumbest name in sports. I hate it, it's an awful name it makes me reluctant to wear merch.

Pelicans


Has a local flavor and a local tradition in sports. Definitely an upgrade from Hornets.

"Guardians" sucks. Spiders would have been a better name.
