Names of the best fantasy basketball teams 2021


After two “incomplete” NBA seasons, you want to move all-in in 2021 – and that starts with a funny / smart / good fantasy basketball team name. Sure, dominating your draft thanks to our positional and overall rankings, list of must-do sleepers and breakouts, and a full cheat sheet is all well and good, but until you find the best name for you. fantasy team … well, your season isn’t even ready to start.

As we say every year, our list does not contain all of “Top Fantastic Basketball Team Names”. To do that, we would need more inappropriate phrases and internal jokes that we couldn’t post here – you know, things that only other members of your league understand (or won’t undo you). Instead, we just have a bunch of word games based on player names. Some are decent (“Rock ’em, Siakem Robots”, “Ingles All The Way”, “You Can’t Randle The Truth”); many are terrible (“Implicit Tobias”, “Wham, Bam, Merci Madame”); and a lot of things you won’t get (“Boogie Towns Productions”). Not worth it. We are volume shooters. Think of us as D’Angelo Russell. They’re not all going to hit rock bottom, but the ones that do … man, they look good. And “There is always room for D’Angelo”. (Splash!)

2021 FANTASY BASKETBALL RANKS:
Guard point | Shooting guard | Small before | Power forward | Center | First 200

Ultimately, the point of this list isn’t necessarily to provide you with a slam dunk. This is to inspire you because you can definitely do better – kind of like how players now head to the three point line instead of filling the lane and head to the hoop on quick breaks. The three are worth more than the two, so don’t settle for our “layups”. Own something, be smart and hit a three.

Start your season like this, and you’ll end it with a fantastic title … or give your friends a smirk, which is the real mark of a champion.
