Worst Sports Team Names


The Top TenXW

1Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim

This is just a bit of a stretch.
If they wanted to still represent Anaheim, why didn't they just stay there?

I'd like to know what the guy who said "yeah, that sounds good" was thinking. - BKAllmighty

Well it's no wonder they have a stupid name considering they used to be owned by disney.

2Houston TexansThe Houston Texans are a professional American football team based in Houston, Texas. The team competes in the National Football League as a member club of the American Football Conference South division.

If they're in Houston they're obviously texans. become the Houston lassos or something!

Why didn't they come up with a better name like the Rockets or ANYTHING other then the Texans. Its just lazy.

There is already a Houston pro sports team called the Rockets. They play in the NBA. - FasterThanSonic

There are lots of dumb names on this list. This is the dumbest.

Duh they're Texans. Should have brought back the oilers

3Utah Jazz

Naming your team after a wimpy style of music. No other NBA team will ever view them as a threat.

4Phoenix Suns
5Toronto Maple LeafsThe Toronto Maple Leafs are a Canadian professional ice hockey team based in Toronto, Ontario, that competes in the National Hockey League.

Funny, because it's "leaves" and not "leafs".

They should have called this team the Toronto maples leaves

6Stanford Cardinal

Not that is makes it a better name, but it is Cardinal and not Cardinals because the team is named after the color instead of the bird.

8Modesto Nuts

Seriously NUT? Your mascot is a Nut...

9Oakland Athletics
10Los Angeles LakersThe Los Angeles Lakers are an American professional basketball team based in Los Angeles, California, that competes in the National Basketball Association.

This team should be in Michigan or back in Chicago. If they are going to stay in L. A. they should be "The Oceaners" - westofohio
