New D-League Team in Maine: The Red Claws

Maine’s new NBA Development League team has a name: the Maine Red Claws.

The name, true to the state’s lobster tradition, was announced Thursday by team president and general manager Jon Jennings on The Big Jab sports radio station.

The Red Claws plan to unveil their logo in the near future.

Reaction: I guess it makes sense considering the lobster tradition, but come on, the Red Claws? They couldn’t come up with something better? Why not the Maineiacs, or something to do with the Celtics (since the C’s are the most-likely NBA affiliate).

What Should the name of the new Maine NBADL team be?

  2. ugh what a horrible name. The list they gave us to vote on was terrible, included the Destroyers, the beacons, the traps etc.

    The Red claws is not only a reference to lobstering here in Maine, but also to Red Auerbach.
