The Top Ten

1 Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim Los 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

Just simply call them the Anaheim Angels. Anaheim is not LA, people!

"Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim", when anglicized, becomes "The Angels Angels of Anaheim". Their rival teams should be "San Francisco Saint Francis of Daly City", "San Jose Saint Joseph of Sunnyvale", and "San Diego Saint James of Chula Vista".

2 Houston Texans Houston Texans The 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.

The New York New Yorkers. The Buffalo New Yorkers. What does a bull have to do with living in Houston? The city is mostly not a bunch of rodeo, cattle-driving cowpokes. Houston is too much of a melting pot to be considered the majority as "Texans". They should have picked Bobcats.

3 Utah Jazz Utah Jazz

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

4 Phoenix Suns Phoenix Suns
5 Modesto Nuts

Seriously NUT? Your mascot is a Nut...

6 Washington Redskins Washington Redskins The Washington Redskins are a professional American football team based in the Washington, D.C. metropolitan area.

Most racist Name ever

Where Are These Guys From? Candyland

7 New York Knicks New York Knicks

You spelt they're wrong and no their not fam your so bait

THERE TRASH

8 Toronto Maple Leafs Toronto Maple Leafs The 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".

The ducks should be here.

Autism matthews

They suck.

10 Oakland Athletics Oakland Athletics

The Contenders

11 Montgomery Biscuits
12 Hartford Yard Goats
13 Stanford Cardinal Stanford 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.

14 Miami Floridians
15 Minnesota Wild Minnesota Wild

Please choose a specific species of animals. Think...umm... coyotes. And the existing Coyotes should change their name to Cacti because that is what is in Arizona.

16 Los Angeles Lakers Los Angeles Lakers The Los Angeles Lakers are an American professional basketball team based in Los Angeles. The Lakers compete in the National Basketball Association, as a member of the league's Western Conference Pacific Division. ...read more.

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

Is there a lake in Los Angeles I didn't know about?

17 Middletown Middies
18 Philadelphia Phillies Philadelphia Phillies

They Should have stayed with the name Quakers, they have a role in the history of Philadelphia. "Phillies" just makes them sound lazy.

19 San Francisco 49ers San Francisco 49ers The San Francisco 49ers are a professional American football team located in the San Francisco Bay Area.

The 49ers? They haven't been diging up any gold lately 5-4

20 Washington Wizards Washington Wizards The Washington Wizards are an American professional basketball team based in Washington, D.C. The Wizards compete in the National Basketball Association, as a member of the league's Eastern Conference Southeast Division.

"Abracadabra, the ball's in the net now! "

This is the exact opposite of what I'd expect a Washington D.C. team to be called.

21 Savannah Sand Gnats
22 Boston Red Sox Boston Red Sox The Boston Red Sox are an American professional baseball team based in Boston, Massachusetts, that competes in Major League Baseball.
23 Anaheim Mighty Ducks

This should be above the maple leafs.

DUCKS! Seriously

Hate all 3 of their movies, hate the cartoon show and I absolutely HATE their hockey team. They are so not the mightiest ever, they totally suck.

24 Los Angeles Clippers Los Angeles Clippers The Los Angeles Clippers, often abbreviated as the LA Clippers, are an American professional basketball team based in Los Angeles.
25 Idaho Vandals
26 Orlando Magic Orlando Magic

Sounds like the name of a stripper - NicholasYellow

27 Binghamton Rumble Ponies

"A tribute to the Triple Cities' rich carousel heritage, the Rumble Ponies is a herd of fierce horses that no carousel center pole can contain." It's funny because no one gives a flying french fry about carousels and the name is the polar opposite of fierce.

Adding "Rumble" in front of Ponies does not make it sound more fierce. - dsstew12

28 New Britain Rock Cats
29 Miami Hooters

This was a men's Arena Football team from the late 1990's (! )

30 Montreal Canadiens Montreal Canadiens The Montreal Canadiens are a Canadian professional ice hockey team based in Montreal, Quebec, that competes in the National Hockey League.

Who ever voted this is a jealous loser.

So dumb we all know they play in canaduh owned by a guy living in canaduh and followed by people from canaduh. Try and come up with a more creative name

31 Denver Nuggets Denver Nuggets
32 Richmond Flying Squirrels
33 New York Islanders New York Islanders

The ISLANDERS? What the heck! People who live on an island do not call themselves islanders. At least the Lakers have a catchy name. But the islanders is not catchy. That is why everyone pays to see the Rangers and the islanders get no money. And no money causes them to suck every year!

It's named after Long Island, dude. To be honest, I really don't care if a Team Name is catchy or not. I'm just saying... - MusicalPony

34 Kansas City Royals Kansas City Royals

There is nothing royal about Kansas City

35 Chicago White Sox Chicago White Sox
