Nets Have Yet to Make It Official, So Some Suggest Their Own Names

The Nets were supposed to make an official name change announcement around now, but so far, nothing.  At this point, calling the team anything but the Brooklyn Nets would be a surprise and a needless shock.  But the delay has given some the chance to make alternative suggestions.

So "The Awl", a flippy online magazine whose motto is "Be Less Stupid", has come up with 15 suggestions. Most are  Brooklyn-tinged like "Brooklyn Cheese Cakes", "Brooklyn Fighting Knishes", "Park Slope SuperParents" and our personal favorite, "The Brooklyn Irony".  Of course, we don't get about a third of them, but that could apply to a third of the roster too.
