Thread: We need a nickname for the second unit.

    Default We need a nickname for the second unit.

    Our bench players have been awesome recently, so they deserve a nickname.

    Any ideas?

    alll I can think of is Psycho Twos. haha

    The Pacers second unit.

    It's very clear and people reading the forum would actually understand who was being talked about.

    "1b".

    Our starters are "1a".

    Has any second unit ever had a nickname?

    Didn't the Lakers call themselves the Bench Mob a few years ago?

    It was stupid then too.

    Zepzach is trying to start a conversation here, and it's a tough crowd this (pseudo) holiday Monday. Because I have been pierced by cupid's arrow and feel in good spirits, I will take up Zepzach's cause for him.

    A simple Google search of "nickname of bench" reveals dozens of similar discussion threads in other NBA team blogs and message boards. Apparently Phil Jackson nicknamed his bench the "Renegades." The Magic are the "Bench Mob".

    As for whether the Pacers' bench deserves its own moniker yet, is debatable. They haven't really done anything as a unit for an extended period of time. Heck, they didn't even have an identity until 8 games ago because of all the moving parts in and out of the starting lineup.

    Let's let the question simmer for awhile. I like the idea, but I think the bench has to earn its nickname. So far, it's tough to decipher exactly what they are to give them the right name.

    Larry is not coming back, he didn't have a meeting with Orlando for not reason, yeah he is coming back to the NBA but not to the Pacers, the notion that he is a taking a year off and then come back is absurd.

    Do we have a "defined" 6th man, on which we can place the leadership of the second squad?

    "King George's (Back-) Court" is all I got right now.

    Thank you. Yeah I guess it's not the most unique idea, I just thought the discussion could be fun.

    I don't have a nickname for the bench but I think Jeff Foster should be allowed into the "Animal Crackers."

    I like Bruise Brothers. Not sure if its just for the second unit.

    How about the Bicep Brigade?

    The whole nickname for the 2nd team seemed like a really bad idea, so I just posted the most awful one I could think of.

    Sorry for making you feel dirty. I just have a dark sense of humor.
