Name that Basketball Team!

A reader suggested the following as a topic:

After a week of very heavy subjects, how about a lighter note—namely, naming the B-Ball team Coach Curt Pickering is bringing to town. Why not let your readers blog their little hearts out on the best name for the team—surely someone will suggest the McCaws, the Journalists, perhaps the Abused—how about the Smug, the Homeless or, my favorites, The Condos or The Developers…

I like The Modifications. That way, whenever they get a foul, they can say that the rules don't apply to them...It's very SB.

So it's agreed then, the team name should be Steelheads.

Among all the above, I like "The Affordables" best.

My own suggestion is, "The Assessors."
