View Full Version : Just for fun: name the Vegas expansion team

It's probably not going to happen, and even if it does, it'll be at least 5 years from now probably.


But, just for fun, some potential names for the potential Vegas expansion team:

The Las Vegas Rhinestones (imagine the uniforms)

The Neons

The Flying Elvises

The Swingers

The Dicemen

(I can't think of anything good at the moment, just trying to get the ball rolling).

I'm picturing purple-orange velvet uniforms with rhinestones, sunglasses and huge collars :laugh:

Las Vegas Gamblers

The Bets

The Nevada Wh$res (rasheed could relate to this)

I'd rather name the team's "dance squad". I'm sure they'd be the post popular group in all sports. :D

01-23-2004, 10:31 AM
the Las Vegas Hookers, for all the uhh hook shots they might take.

01-23-2004, 10:31 AM
The Vegas Craps
The Vegas Prostitutes :pimp:
The Vegas Strip

Las Vegas Blackjacks

Las Vegas Mob (for old times sake)

Las Vegas Quicksilvers (I thought there was a team by that name at one time)

Las Vegas Runnin' Yankees

01-23-2004, 10:37 AM
Las Vegas Dry Heat

Vegas High Rollers

Sin City Sinners

Desert Mafia

Las Vegas Goodfellas (Wiseguys) (Gangstas)

Man, I'd love it if Vegas had a proball team. I've been screaming forever that it would be a great idea. Recruitment sure would be easy.... :D

Seriously, it would be in line with our other teams. UNLV has the (Runnin') Rebels, our Arena Football team is the Outlaws, and our ABA team is the Rattlers. We've also got the Gladiators.

I'd go more along the lines of the Las Vegas (One-Armed) Bandits.

Bandits is cool.

Never having been to Vegas let me be the FIRST to sign up for any future Pacer fan road trips to see the P's play in there!!!!

I love all these names but I DO think the NBA would frown on any name even remotely referencing gambling.

01-23-2004, 12:16 PM
OK then Prostitutes it is :P .

01-23-2004, 12:18 PM
Geez - fix range in your sig. You're killing me :laugh:

I like "Vegas Strip"

though that name opens up some intriguing entertainment possibilities for their cheerleading squad...

I love all these names but I DO think the NBA would frown on any name even remotely referencing gambling.

NBA betting is why Stern hasn't given the team a franchise yet. So gambling names are definately out.

"Bandits" might work, though. And it's a veiled reference to gambling (a "one-armed bandit" is a slot machine).

the Las Vegas Hookers, for all the uhh hook shots they might take

Las Vegas Vipers

Las Vegas Sting

Hm . . . Luck-less Vegas loses 17th in a row!

Hmmm . . . Vegas Prostitutes put out over slow start!

That's funny I just bought my tickets for my own little Vegas excursion in March. :)

In my honor, I nominate the Las Vegas Burritos.

It's so absurd and random, it just might have a chance.

That's good, except the ranch was outside Reno, not Vegas. Although the Bunny Ranch is not too far from Vegas.

Maybe the Las Vegas Bunnies, or the Las Vegas Bunny Ranchers.
