“Up, up, up the court! Down, down, down the court! Up the court, down the court! Go, team, go!” This is a cheer that I can recall fondly that was one of the chants at my brother’s basketball games back in high school. It’s one of the only ones that I hear when I fantasize about basketball in the good ol’ days!

Speaking of fantasizing about basketball, let’s get on the topic of fantasy basketball! With so many good professional players out there, everyone can build their very own dream team and even win a few bucks in the process. What’s even more fun is getting together with the rest of the fantasy players and partying during game time, and of course, making fun of those who are losing!

Fantasy Basketball Team Names

If you are playing fantasy basketball and do not yet know what you are going to call your team, then you are probably in need of a few good fantasy basketball team name ideas! What exactly do you look for in a team name? That is up to you; after all, it’s your team! Here are some tips for coming up with your own:

  • Your name: So you’re basically a coach at this point, right? Right. So own the team as if they were right in front of you! Be cocky, name the team after you!
  • Your favorite team: Think about your favorite team and use their name or colors or some other aspect about them in your team’s name. You’ll be showing some team loyalty while taking pride in your fantasy team!
  • Basketball terms: There are many words out there that are specific to basketball, so since this is a fantasy basketball league, those terms are fair game!
  • Puns: Puns are clever when used in any aspect of life and fantasy basketball is no different! Give other team leaders a few laughs by using a pun in your name!
  • Gender: Fantasy basketball is not just for the guys, and whether your league is based around the NBA or WNBA, it never hurts to be gender-specific in fantasy basketball team names!
