NBA Fantasy Basketball pun

Fantasy basketball is really fun. However, what really puts the sport over the top is all of the pun possibilites for your team’s name. In no other sport do you have such a wide array of diverse and unique names among the superstars of the league. I mean, the best player in the league is named LeBron for Moses’ sake. So the rule is, take a player on your team, find a great pun, and you have a world class fantasy basketball team name.

So with that in mind, we put the Bat Signal to the sky and a Pun Creating Super Team was formed, featuring Will Purvis, Shane Diesel JJ Pontes, Michael Emerson, Michael Robinson, and myself. We are burdened with the task of compiling a list of some of the best puns in the league, organized by player’s last name.
