    Nets to change name when they move to Brooklyn

    [url]http://www.netsdaily.com/2010/8/7/1610658/nyet-to-nets-in-brooklyn[/url]

    [QUOTE]A NetsDaily translation of the full Forbes Russia interview with Mikhail Prokhorov reveals the team plans a name change once it moves to Brooklyn, and that in fact documents seeking approval for the change have been submitted to the NBA. He didn't disclose the name.[/QUOTE]

    Though I would post this here to get more play.

    Let the speculation begin.

    -Brooklyn Cosmonauts.
    -Brooklyn Knights (as in, "Brooklynites"),

    For fun:

    Brooklyn Criminals
    Albee Square Terribles
    The Roeblings
    Brooklyn Lords (of Flatbush)
    Brooklyn Wanderers
    The Rims

    For real:

    Brooklyn Kings (sorry Sacramento, but you have to change your name)

    I had heard that they might go by "New York" as opposed to "Brooklyn". I hope that's not the case.

    Brooklyn Knights makes sense on a lot of levels - I like it.

    Screw it, call them the Dodgers. Dress them in blue and white uniforms. The Russian owner will probably think it's clever. No one will care, anyway... it's the NBA.

    How about the Brooklyn Rebels? or even Brooklyn Devils. We used to have a baseball and football team called the Giants.

    [QUOTE]Civil War

    Fervent in the Union cause, the city of Brooklyn played a major role in supplying troops and materiel for the American Civil War. The most well known regiment to be sent off to war from the city was the 14th Brooklyn "Red Legged Devils". They fought from 1861 to 1864 and wore red the entire war. They were the only Regiment named after a city, and President Lincoln called them into service personally, making them part of a handful of 3 year enlisted soldiers in April 1861. Unlike other regiments during the American Civil War, the 14th wore a uniform inspired by that of the French Chasseurs, a light infantry used for quick assaults on the enemy.

    As both a seaport and a manufacturing center, Brooklyn was well prepared to play to the Union's strengths in shipping and manufacturing. The two combined in shipbuilding; the ironclad Monitor was built in Brooklyn.[/QUOTE]

    I just hope it's an actual sports team name and not some dumb WNBA-type sh!t like the Sun or Sparks or Storm.

    The Thunder is just too stupid.

    Knights was a good suggestion. Lots of possibilities for cool uniforms and mascot.
