Comedian Joe Mande reimagines NBA franchises, illustrated by fans

Wednesday August 13th, 2014

Comedian Joe Mande, perhaps best known to the sports world for beating Gilbert Arenas in an online argument so bad the latter deleted his Twitter account, has decided to rename NBA teams based on the first thing that pops in his mind when he thinks of a city. The list includes obvious names like the L.A. Screenplays, San Antonio Alamos, Utah Mormons and Cleveland LeBrons, to less conventional ones monikers such as the Chicago Buildings, Atlanta Stripclubs, and Phoenix McCains.

Fans began creating logos for these teams on Twitter, and the result has been pretty amusing.

Sacramento Governors

Minnesota Malls

Dallas Grassy Knolls

New York Anxiety

Toronto Drakes

Portland Food Carts

And of course, Atlanta Strip Clubs
