Grand Rapids NBA D-League Team Announces Potential Franchise Names
The franchise originally came from Springfield, Massachusetts and was named the Springfield Armor, but clearly the team needs a new name to reflect its new home!
The to-be-named franchise asked the public to come up with names for their new basketball team. There were over 4,000 entries and today the team released the final four candidates:
- Grand Rapids Drive
- Grand Rapids Chairmen
- Grand Rapids Horsepower
- Grand Rapids Blue Racers
What do you think about the new names?
I’m not really a fan of any of them, but I doubt I could come up with anything better!
Voting on the new team name will be open until 6 p.m. on May 10 at the team's website.
The winner and team logo will be announced shortly after at a launch party for the team.
The new D-league team will play their games at the DeltaPlex in Walker and will be one of 18 NBA D-League teams competing for the 2014-15 season.
