    I don't mind that Dukes suggestion actually, although for some reason I picture it with an attachment.. the Black Dukes? Fearsome!

    For aesthetic and rhyming purposes I'd probably prefer the Blue Dukes, truth be told!

    I probably had the Black Death or the Black Army from Medieval Europe's eventful days of yore on my mind.. by the time this thread is done, the new New Orleans is going to inspire terror in the NBA, I just know it!

    Kudos on the Slurpees suggestion by the way- I'm still chuckling five minutes later. Will the Slurpees be cold as ice? Or will they suck?..

    New Orleans Black Death Basketball Club

    I had an intramural floor hockey team at UNO back in the 80's. We wanted to be the No Diques, because they the Dekes won the league two years in a row. Plus I liked the Quebec Nordiques. The rec center said we had to change our name. So I said "White Death Hockey Club" - Okay.

    So we did win the league. Some guy asked me if I played Juniors in Canada. I laughed "I'm from Metairie, and I can't skate. "

    At an Alice Cooper and Iron Maiden show in Atlanta at the moment.

    No Hawks jerseys yet. No Falcons yet. One Braves, one Durant, one Mark Martin shirt.

    Anthrax, Megadeth, and Slayer at UNO had Hornets and Saints.

    We win. Of course.

    mulling the nicknames starting with X over very briefly....then deciding to go with one in honor of a young New Orleans player and one of our illustrious learning institutions....how about the New Orleans Xavier's? (the only question is how to pronounce Xavier!)

    Everyone of these are horrible names for male adults' athletics team regardless of level of play. A few might work for 5-10 year old peewee league synchronized swimming teams.

    I dig a few, but I think the main point he's trying to make is suggestions that haven't been brought up by other people. I like Defenders the most out of the list.

    How about you go back and see why I'm posting these, then criticize that. I'm not actually suggesting these names. I'm trying to post an original name every day for a month. Original. The idea is to expand the conversation and to show how difficult this kind of exercise is. Every name has some detractors.

    Also, how about you suggest an original name? I would love to see your original names so we can add them in and end up with the best name possible. So, whatcha got?

    Or are you just here to complain when you actually can't do any better yourself? I refuse to believe that at this point, but without some suggestions . . .

    That, and it's difficult.

    I'm most fine with Hornets, Voodoo, Krewe, Brass. Given a rebrand . . . man, Krewe of New Orleans is pretty good and may be New Orleans Voodoo, which is really like, if we can get it from the AFL team. I really vascillate.

    Krewe of New Orleans at the moment.

    Tell me the right answer!

    I do think Voodoo is more likely. In fact, labor issues aside, I think it's the most likely of any name `around here'. I can't even begin to evaluate Angels and Spirit.

    Mid-City! Just noticed! We just got stronger, folks.

    A muffin where the top has some slightly caramelized or burned sugar crunchy thing going, so slight, is really hard to beat.

    From this thread in it's entirety I'm digging:

    Knights (alliteration)
    Blues
    Dukes/Blue Dukes
    New Orleans Black Death Basketball Club (scroll further up this page- it's a winner)

    Arcangels is decent- in this wee corner of the Earth, an early 20th century footy club was known as the Blood-stained Angels (playing in a white guernsey with a blood red yoke being the reason why).. it fell out of fashion for decades until some latter day players re-discovered it and reclaimed the name in an abbreviated form- the Bloods. I love the romanticism of that example.

    I'm also liking vanilla slice and cinnamon scrolls.

    New idea, this becomes the secondary logo for the Knights so it's Knights/nights would be the most unique name in basketball and it for sure fits alliteration and what not.

    I did indeed!

    Being from Australia, I can tell you that neither I nor 99.99% of my neighbours can skate either! Also when you christen your team as the White Death Hockey Club, you cannot be destined to do anything BUT win- it was an inspired choice.

    I think NOLA can learn from your experience.

    It was a good story.

    I'm betting there are more. I'd love to hear the stories whether they are tied to realistic names (Arcangels) or not (White Death). Love them.

    I had a `fake' lacrosse team called the Jack Whooping Llamas. The former is a remote locale, the latter is Monty Python inspired. I still have some remnants of the long-running joke including a llama crossing sign.

    Good days, my friends.

    Thanks. It's so good to be home.

    Also, I think Voodoo is my favorite of the group for now. My tastes change every day though, so anything can happen. On Thursday I might suggest we become the New Orleans Walk Ons, or the New Orleans CBD, or the New Orleans Jeez 42 Why Haven't You Gotten Me a Beer Yets.
