BE... the Horace Grant of SBN names

Regularly I check out the BE game previews.  Usually the last line or so instructs me to check out our opponent’s perspective on their SBN site.  I generally look but the timeliness and quality isn’t usually as good as ours and I don’t stay long.  But I began to take notice of the other blogs names.  So, while it has been attested to in the national media that BE is the best of the blog sites, run by the most knowledgeable hosts, and frequented by the most rabid fans (yeah Bill).  I have to admit.  We don’t have the most clever blog name…

Don’t get me wrong Blazers Edge is a good name.  It is a respectable name.  It is a starter on the blog name starting five.  It is Horace Grant, Steve Smith, Buck Williams, or Brian Grant to successful starting fives.  However, I do like a couple of names more than ours.  There are also several that are just terrible.  Here is my list, I‘ll start with the ones I don’t like.  Let me know what you think.

 

Least original

CelticsBlog (really, no kidding)

 

Honorable mention:

Raptors HQ

Sactown Royalty (replacing “Kings” with “Royalty” isn’t clever)

Clips Nation (the original SBN site is my favorite baseball team Athletics Nation.  For them it is original)

SLC Dunk

Silver Screen and Roll (Cheesy and I just hate the L*kers)

 

Some I like:

Third Quarter Collapse (I am not sure the reference but I suppose someone will tell me)

Mavs Moneyball (remember I am an A’s fan, I think Cuban is good for the game)

Peachtree hoops

Denver Stiffs

Bullets Forever & Straight Outta Vancouver (gotta know where you are from)

Blog a Bull (good use of alliterations)

 

Best double meaning:

Indy Cornrows

 

Honorable mention:

Peninsula is Mightier

 

My favorite nonSBN basketball blog name:

3 Shades of Blue (I think this is in reference to their logo)

 

My favorite/most original SBN blog name:

Canis Hoopus (I find the Latin naming of species approach witty)
