WTF were EXPOS anyway?
The NBA's New Orleans franchise is thinking of changing their name to the Pelicans. Meh, right?

Well it still would be better than some. So my question is:

What is the worst team name in sports?


Got it? Good. Go team!

Getting caught up in the moment and naming your team the Raptors, is akin to having a franchise today and calling it The Zombies or Vampires.

i wish the la dodgers would just figure their s**t out, honestly. they started out as the bridegrooms and after a series (that's a baseball joke, son) of identity changes, settled on the dodgers which is short for trolley dodgers, but i have heard actually means dodging marriage. 

oh and y'all joke about the shocker, but that is actually university of houston's hand sign:

Why are you dissing Les Expos, Marcus? What kind of Canadian are you?

Also, the answer to the question is always the Utah Jazz.

I'm allowed, I'm from Montreal. Kinda the nword logic. I can and it's okay, but if other people do...

You're right, if they're giving Hornets back to Charlotte then Jazz goes back to N.O., Grizzlies to Raptors and the Wizards are just thrown in as an expiring name that gets amnestied and disappears eventually. I just put that in the ESPN trade machine and it worked fine.

I think when MLS began back in 1996, they cornered the market on lame nicknames...

Kansas City Wiz (1996 - 1996)

Some even survive to this day...

!) The Dodgers were the Bridegrooms (a much worse name) then the Robins (after their manager, Wilbert Robinson), before becoming the Trolley Dodgers, then the Dodgers. It is a classic name, which hasn't changed in  around 100 years.

2) Expo '68 was held in Montreal, the baseball team began playing in 1969, so, the people of Montreal voted for the team to be named "The Expos".

3) Utah Jazz has got to be the worst name in sports, because when you think of Utah, do you think of Jazz? Perhaps they should become the Bees? Or, if they want to keep a music theme, the Tabernacle Choir?

4) Fighting Artichokes is pretty funny.

The NFL's Bills, only because I hate paying them.

What is a Knickerbocker?

I think the Lakers and Jazz should switch names, Salt Lake City is known for it's giant lake, while jazz would be more fitting for the upbeat streets of L.A.
