Name That Team

It would be a dream come true for Baldman if he was able to come up with a new name for the Nets when they move to Brooklyn.

Here are a couple of shots from the top of the key:

Great Names That Can't Be Used

The Brooklyn Kings-as in Kings County. How sweet it is, but Sacramento has it already.

The Brooklyn Warriors- from the classic Brooklyn movie. But Golden State beat us to it.

Names That Should Be Considered

The Brooklyn Bridge- Brooklyn's most famous symbol; a gateway to the world. Plus, the Brooklyn Battery Tunnel has no chance.

The Brooklyn Streets- everybody from Brooklyn comes from the streets.

The Brooklyn Dreams- its been a dream for more than half a century to bring a sports team to Brooklyn.

The Brooklyn Express- as in an Express train. Who wants to take a local?

The Brooklyn Jammers- has a nice tie-in with basketball.

The Brooklyn Shipbuilders- to honor the 70,000 people who worked around the clock to build Navy warships during WWII.

The Brooklyn Militia- the first battle of the Revolutionary War took place on the soil where the Brooklyn basketball team will play. The heavily out manned Maryland Militia battled the British long enough to allow George Washington and his troops to retreat across the East River to Manhattan. A nice way to honor their sacrifice.

The Brooklyn Boardwalk- Coney Island, baby.

The Brooklyn Brigade- has a nice ring to it.

The Brooklyn Zoo- in honor of the late/GREAT Brooklyn native Old Dirty Bastard.

The Brooklyn Bulldogs- tough sounding without sounding crazy like the Pit bulls.

The Brooklyn Accent- fuhgetaboudit. It will never happen.

The Brooklyn Stoop- Baldman can dream, right?
