Introduction

There are few things in life attributed as much attention and passion as pets and sports, and by specific example here, dogs and basketball. While the two don’t physically go hand in hand as well as baseball, where there’s a reasonably-sized object to chase and fetch, there’s little doubt they share more than in common than we first may think. After all, they are both seemingly timeless, affect our daily moods, and provide us a lifetime of joy and pain should we choose to commit for that long. And for those very reasons, we like to attach as much meaning as possible to them. For some, names are purely arbitrary, but for others, they represent something much greater, a deeper reminder of why we hold both so dearly. While players and dogs eventually both pass, their names and the memories tied to them can last forever.

Famous Basketball Player Dog Name Considerations

Many people will choose a name for their dog purely based on players they like, and that’s perfectly okay. But for the rest of us, who want our furry friends to carry their namesakes like trophies full of wins and losses and true identity, this is simply not enough. Generic basketball names like Dribbler for a dog that drools too much or carries half the water dish in its mouth after it walks away is apt enough, but for those truly diehard fans who have followed players and teams for years, even decades, well, they need more, which is why we’re here. 

For anyone with a wide knowledge of the numerous different attributes a dog can have, there’s undoubtedly a lot to consider, even if they’re only a fan of one team or a select group of players. One could easily tie a name to looks alone based on their face, expressions or teeth, let alone their coat color, pattern or breed. Then, of course, there’s also personality, which is another full list of possibilities entirely. But whatever you choose to go with, rest assured your companion will be outfitted with a name that’s not only appropriate and reminds you of the sport you love, but one that is likely to be far more fun and cool than your own — sorry to break it to you.
