    Default Stars Team or Team Stars

    I want to choose a name for our team.
    Can I say:
    Stars Team or Team Stars
    Heroes Team or Team Heroes

    Or you have other suggestions.

    It's impossible to help without knowing more about your team's background.

    I'm moving this thread to the General Language Discussions forum.

    No. I don't even know what they are.

    NBA - American basketball league, consists of 29 American teams and one Canadian (NBA players are the best paid athletes in the world). Michael Jordan was probably most famous NBA player.
    NHL - National Hockey League, also consists of 30 teams (7 Canadian and 23 American)

    They are just two of the four biggest Northern American sport leagues along with MLB (baseball) and NFL (rugby).

    I know Twenty20 is amazingly exciting but put aside from time to time that typical British resistance to everything which comes from USA and enjoy some basketball or hockey game!

    How's that for stereotyping! I have no interest whatsoever in basketball or hockey (or indeed any sport of any kind) and that makes me an example of some typical British resistance to everything that comes from the USA? Hey ho.

    And how does a native of Poland resident in the UK even get to watch North American sport...let alone feel competent to slag off those uninterested in it?

    If you're going to call the NFL "rugby" you may as well call MLB "cricket."
    I'm not a teacher, but I write for a living. Please don't ask me about 2nd conditionals, but I'm a safe bet for what reads well in (American) English.
