Can “the Nets” be topped?

With the New Jersey Nets moving to Brooklyn, there has been much to do about what their new name will be. Although the ultra creative "Nets" might be nearly impossible to top, a few ad wizards within the league gave it their best shot:

The Brooklyn Backboards
The Brooklyn Mouthpieces
The Brooklyn Rims
The Brooklyn Forearm Wristbands
The Brooklyn Talcum Powder
The Brooklyn Finger Tape
The Brooklyn Horace Grant Goggles
The Brooklyn Headbands
The Brooklyn Knee Pads
The Brooklyn Sam Bowies
The Brooklyn High Tops
The Brooklyn Drug Dealers
The Brooklyn Jaded Hispters
The Brooklyn Calzones
The Brooklyn Sals
The Brooklyn Vinnys
The Brooklyn Backhair
The Brooklyn Brawlers
The Brooklyn Horse Manure
The Brooklyn Phoenix Gorillas

    The Brooklyn New Jersey Nets? That would be really creative.

    But I like Sam Bowies the best. Sounds cool. “Brooklyn Sam Bowies”. Definitely. Can’t be topped. And they could bring back those light blue uniforms they had when Sam was playing (?)
