    Default 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.

    http://www.indystar.com/articles/4/113979-8674-039.html

    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

    I'd rather name the team's "dance squad". I'm sure they'd be the post popular group in all sports.
    Why do the things that we treasure most, slip away in time
    Till to the music we grow deaf, to God's beauty blind
    Why do the things that connect us slowly pull us apart?
    Till we fall away in our own darkness, a stranger to our own hearts
    And life itself, rushing over me
    Life itself, the wind in black elms,
    Life itself in your heart and in your eyes, I can't make it without you

    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....

    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.
    Welcome to Pacers Digest! New around here? Here are three tips for making the forum a great place to talk about Pacers basketball.

    • Log in. Even if you want to read instead of post, it's helpful because it lets you:
    • Change your signature options. You can hide all signatures by choosing "Settings" (top right) then "General Settings" (middle left) and unchecking the box "Show Signatures" (in the "Thread Display Options" area).
    • Create an ignore list. I know it may seem unneighborly. But you're here to talk about the Pacers, not argue with someone who's just looking for an argument. Most of the regular users on here make use (at least occasionally) of the "Ignore" feature. Just go to "Settings" -> "Edit Ignore List" and add the names.

    Enjoy your time at PD!

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

    I like "Vegas Strip"

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

    The poster "pacertom" since this forum began (and before!). I changed my name here to "Slick Pinkham" in honor of the imaginary player That Bobby "Slick" Leonard picked late in the 1971 ABA draft (true story!)

    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).

    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.
