    This reminds me of when the Indy Star was looking for a nick for their bench a couple years ago... the Pacers pulled out a lot of last second wins... so I submited "The Pacemakers"... and danged if they didn't use it.

    Whatever name they come up with for this years team, it should take on the current identity... something about going against the odds (or experts opinion).... too bad the Fab 5 was already taken.

    Yeah, I like "the stones".

    Cause they're like a "ROCK"

    But, then again, we lost one game. OHHHHHH NOOOOO OUR SEASON IS OVER!!!:P :P :P :P :P

    or

    How about the "offensive-defensive guys"

    Sorry, that sort of just came out. I don't know what I was thinking. It won't happen again.

    What about...

    "Superstars? We don't need no stinking superstars!" (Unless we can get KG cheap)
    If that's too wordy, we could always use the acronym "S.W.D.N.N.S.S!" :laugh:

    Yup

    How about just the PISTONS?

    Other than that I think the CREW is cool. I'll think of something else.

    No new nicks

    I don't see why mess up with something beautiful... Just leave us be as Bad Boys!

    But if you held a gun to my head and said, "if you don't change that nick, we gon change it for u", I guess "The Stones" would be nice... Or "The Roots"... Yeah, something like that.

    Cause they've got the kahonees to take on anyone!

    Does anyone know who originally coined the name The Stones?

    Stones

    I'm pretty sure it was either Fred or Barney.

    We should check that out with our buddy the Great Gazoo.

    Personally, I think it was Fred's uncle with the big lips (Mick JaggedRock) who coined that name. ;)

    Why was the Great Gazoo exiled from his planet? What planet was he exiled from? These are some questions that need to be answered.

    OK, dumb-dumbs :)

    Zaitox is the plant I am from. I was exiled because my levitating skills allowed me to dunk on much taller, much better players. I was outlawed in the ZBA (Zaitox Basketball Association) and on other teams in the Intergalactic Conference. It's sad really. I could have been the next MJ: Morphus Jaglinowpheus. He is a legend on Zaitox. Only two feet tall and a sickly blue color but could run the point at four times the speed of Earthling and Major Dumb-Dumb Stephon Marbury. Jaglinowpheus not only dribbled through defenders' legs, he literally walked through people's legs. And he used to kick his tail out on jumpers and draw a lot of fouls (a la Earthlings Reggie Miller and Dwayne Wade).

    While I'm enjoying the humor, as perhaps you are mocking me in my naiveness...I was serious...where did The Stones come from?

    gazoo...come-on...Zaitox sounds like the latest pharmaceutical hemorrhoid remedy :)

    I think you should have hooked up with that sports attorney...Perry Masonry, might have saved you from exile. I guess your stuck with the dumb-dumbs.
