Names of the best teams in Fantasy Basketball 2021



After two “sketchy” NBA seasons, you want to go all-in in 2021, and that starts with a fun / smart / good fantasy basketball team name. Sure, dominating your draft thanks to our positional and overall rankings, must-have sleepers and breakaways list, and a full cheat sheet is all well and good, but until you find the best fancy team name … well, your season isn’t. ‘He’s not even ready to start.

As we say every year, our list does not contain everybody of the “best fantasy basketball team names”. To do that, we would need more inappropriate phrases and inside jokes that we couldn’t post here – you know, things that only others in your league understand (or won’t cancel). Instead, we just have a bunch of word games based on the players’ names. Some are decent (“Rock ’em, Siakem Robots”, “English to the end”, “You can’t tell the truth”); many are terrible (“Implied Tobias”, “Wham, Bam, thank you ma’am”); and a lot you won’t get (“Boogie Towns Productions”). Do not bother yourself. We are volume shooters. Think of us as D’Angelo Russell. Not all will hit rock bottom, but the ones that will … man, they look good. And “There is always room for D’Angelo.” (Splash!)

FANTASY BASKETBALL 2021 RANKINGS:
Owner | Shooting guard | Small eaves | Power forward | Center | Top 200

Ultimately, the point of this list is not necessarily to give you a dunk. It’s for inspiration because you can definitely do better, kind of like how players now drift towards the 3-point line instead of filling the lane and going to the rim on counterattacks. All three are worth more than both, so don’t just grab our “trays.” Do the same, be smart and get a three.

Start your season like this and you will complete it with a fantasy title … or you will make your friends smile slightly, which is the true mark of a champion.
