              The Jazz and the Grizzlies should switch names, because Utah has grizzlies, but absolutely no connection to jazz at all and Memphis has always been an important city for jazz, but doesn’t have any grizzlies.

                                      These teams should switch city's.
                                      LA Clippers=Las Vegas Clippers
                                      Memphis Grizzlies=Pittsburgh Grizzlies
                                      Sacramento Kings=Kansas City Kings.

                                                          Sounds like there's a market for the name dragons somewhere.

                                                            When the jazz got sent to Utah they never bothered changing the name because they figured the team would just die out and was not worth the $, when Larry Miller bought the team he kept the name basically as a middle finger.

                                                              Lakers should be renamed Los Angeles Lebrons.

                                                                They "unfortunately" kept the name when they moved to Salt Lake City?! Blow me!! You obviously don't know why they kept the name. They kept it cause the team was nearly broke when they moved and keeping the name would mean they could save money on reusing a lot of the old stuff, including uniforms. They also did have a contest to rename the team but nothing stuck and so they just decided to stick with the Jazz. So what if it has nothing to do with Salt Lake City?
