re: the name - I live in Brisbane and have supported the Bullets since I started playing basketball when I was 8. I would like the team to be known as the Bullets.
Even if Eddy Groves owns the IP attached to the Bullets' name, I don't see him standing in the way of someone else using the name (nor is he in the position to complain about it). Despite his business issues, he is a passionate basketball fan.
I am not one for "starting a fresh", especially in apparently the 3rd largest basketball market in Australia. The 30 years of Bullets history gets lost if we start all over again and you end up alienating most of the Brisbane basketball community. As an example, how would Wildcat or Hawk fans feel if Perth (most successful club) or Wollongong (longest running club) folded and when they came back, the name was different? They would be livid and so they should!
We aren't Melbourne's "2nd team", that folds and then reappears as a completely new franchise each time. I think it is actually disrespectful to all those involved in the Bullets' past.
The name isn't the hurdle stopping us from having a team back, so it should stay "Brisbane Bullets". Just like when Sydney came back, they were called the Kings. This helped them retain their history and loyal fanbase.
