The NBA season is upon us (yes, a full one this year), and it’s time to name your 2012-13 fantasy basketball team. It’s difficult to win a championship in your league each season, but you can have the best team name every year. Our goal was to stay above board for the most part, so we’ll leave the Chris Kaman-inspired names to you. Here’s our list, in no particular order of swag.
