Leonsis Calls Out Grantland for Middle-of-the-Road Team Name Ranking

Chicago Bulls v Washington Wizards
More from 106.7 the Fan

WASHINGTON (CBSDC) - Grantland’s Zach Lowe compiled a list of NBA team names ranked in order of worst to first, counting down, and Ted Leonsis was none too pleased with where the Wizards placed.

At number nineteen, the Wizards’ name came in slightly better than that of the Lakers of Los Angeles, a town with a natural shortage of lakes and water, and a hair worse than the Bucks, which was only knocked for being boring.

From Grantland:

“Wizards slips ahead of Magic for one basic reason: Wizards do magic. Without wizards, magic is just a concept waiting for someone to learn and execute it.”

As mentioned, Leonsis wasn’t a fan and expressed as much in the latest sample from Ted’s Take:

“And “Grantland” is better? The Sports Guy?” Ted asked.

While Ted gave a valiant effort defending his franchise, he left room for a little egg on his face in calling out the ‘The Sports Guy’ – a nickname given to Grantland’s editor-in-chief, Bill Simmons. The problem is, Simmons didn’t form the list.

Let’s all just agree we’ve had enough team name talk to last through 2014.
