  1. Regarding the name change logistics and ignoring the political aspects…

    One of my fears is if the name actually did get changed, it would be a Snyderesque debacle. Let’s face it, the guy’s got horrible nouveau riche taste. We could have a NFL team with some weakass “fearsome” nickname like the “Washington Storm” with a teal, aqua and black color combo.

    I don’t know if DC could handle another Wizards-style name change tragedy.

  2. I’m with you Ketel, but the flip side is that the Wizards debacle might have also sealed the deal on not straying too far from the name/color scheme. BEst sellers on nbashop are all bullets or red/white/blue gear.

  3. I get that the league and sponsors would have to approve a name change, but is that really such a big obstacle? If an owner wanted to change the name of a team on a whim, I could see someone from the outside stepping in to stop it, but if your stated reason for changing names is that the current name is racist, anyone who tried to block the change would look pretty bad.

  4. The Wizards are slowly morphing their logo and colors back to the Bullets-era. Just watch, in a couple years they’ll be known as the Wizlets, then before you know it, back to the Bullets (and relevancy).
