In case you can't read it, the one after "Trend Pieces" says "Mafia" in Russian.

@Niko Bellic Shhh! My ability to read Cyrillic is the one useless skill I have left to lord over people.

@Clarence Rosario Dammit I thought it said "Mayonnaise".

The Brooklyn Irony is a shoo-in. The only meta-ironic basketball team name in the NBA.

kneetoe (#1,881)

What's wrong with Nets? Nets is a nice name. I mean, there's a net hanging from the hoop, so, therefore Nets. Don't mess with a good thing.

@kneetoe but the Nets are a terrible thing?

@kneetoe How about Balls? People like balls.

@My Number Is My Address ahhhh, yes, my alma mater: and yes, that really is on their jerseys.

@liznieve Damned RISD! Always one step ahead.

@kneetoe and there's 2 balls in the net! Delightful. Also the store has a hat for The Nads that will be mine, oh yes.

I'm pulling for the Brooklyn Brewery.

I don't care what the name is, as long as they wear old-school Converse high tops.

Or they could play counterpoint to the Miami Heat and be the Brooklyn Cool.

Also, the Brooklyn Small Batch Organic Fair Trade Artisinal Espressos.
