As this one, fills up, we are going to have to name it, unless you wanna just have it called conference 1. I'm just taking suggestions right now and we'll hold a vote on it later.

Conference 1 is now full with the 8 teams that will comprise it for season 1. If any of you have suggestions what to call this conference, feel free.

It's not too corny

I was going to say Power 8 or Big 8

but I mean, there could be like "Stars Conference" and the other being "Stripes"

or like one is red, one is blue, one is white.. idk

I actually like the idea of the conference being called the Great 8. It makes sense and is kind of catchy.

I actually like the idea of naming conferences based on a color or whatever. I actually like perhaps naming them after some of the basketball greats. Like Michael Jordan Conference, Wilt Chamberlain, etc.

I like the idea of naming after players. Id say get a list of 5 players for each conference and let the teams in that conference vote.

I don't think we'll have any body against naming them after basketball greats. It really just comes down to which greats we'll put in the vote to name this conferece.

If we name them after players i'd really like Len Bias to be considered. He was one of the greats of all time and unfortunately passed away at a young age. Hopefully some others agree.
