Grand Rapids D-League Basketball Affiliate Announces Team Name

Thomas Northcut, ThinkStock

The Grand Rapids D-League professional basketball team, an affiliate of the Detroit Pistons, has announced their team name.

The Grand Rapids D-League basketball team will be known as the Grand Rapids Drive.

The team announced four finalists for possible team names on May 1: Blue Racers, Chairmen, Drive, and Horsepower.

Fans were encouraged to vote for their favorites, but many were less than impressed with the four options.

The team explained the options.

A few pothole jokes are to be expected, but Grand Rapids Drive is a good choice.

Love the retro-style logo!

Congratulations to the Grand Rapids Drive!

It’s good to see another entertainment option in Grand Rapids.
