The 2014-15 NBA regular season is set to tip off, which means your fantasy basketball team(s) will be their respective quests toward a championship. We all know the first rule, though. In order to make it to the top of the mountain, you have to look the part. That starts with having a really funny or clever team name that makes everyone in your league jealous.

Having a good team will also help you win a championship, but don’t you want a solid team name to appear at the top of the leaderboard for the next year while bragging about how good you are at fantasy basketball?
