The Nets seem keen on naming the bench the Bench Mob. They used it on Twitter today. Our poll on the front page about it is basically 50-50 on the name.
SO MY QUESTION FOR YOU GUYS…
What do you guys think the bench nickname should be? Should it have a nickname at all? Is the Bench Mob the right way to go? Also, what’s your favorite flavor of chicken wing sauce?
The Bulls called their bench squad, which featured CJ Watson prominently, the Bench Mob for the past 2 years. After losing everybody from that squad with the exception of Taj Gibson, they no longer call their subs anything.
I heard that some other team called their reserves the “Bench Mob”, but since there are Bulls T-Shirts that say “RIP Bench Mob” I think it’s fair to put at least a few years between now and the next iteration of Bench Mob.
Especially when the Brooklyn Zoo is just about the best idea I’ve ever heard ever. In fact, I wonder if y’all should save that for the upper decks of the stadium or something– make it more permanent.
