Just stumbled upon this thing FalseHoop is doing right now on Twitter, where they're getting people to discuss some of the Blunders of NBA Nicknaming.
The Hornets and Jazz; with New Orleans being the Birthplace of Jazz, and Utah being the "Beehive State".
The Lakers: LA not having any Lakes.
Bobcats: Named after previous owner, Bob Johnson.
Obviously, everyone knows that the Toronto Raptors were named as such because Jurassic Park just happened to be the biggest thing going at the time.
Anyone have any ideas for a #BetterNBAnickname for the Raptors?
I always liked the "The Toronto Towers". Pretty sure there was an old CBA team in Toronto by that name. (Just too bad it sounds like a VERY lame Condo Complex.)
