Some things just don't make sense:

MLB has its World Series

NFL has its Super Bowl

NHL has its Stanley Cup

But what does the NBA have?

THE NBA CHAMPIONSHIP

Boring!!!! And from a marketing perspective, a plain, awful, totally generic name.

So I'm here to propose a new name for the NBA finals:

THE BIG BOUNCE

I would think the NBA's marketing department could really make something out of a name like that.

So what do you think?

Is getting rid of the term "NBA championship" and coming up with a distinct name a good idea?

If it is a good idea, do you like the name "The Big Bounce"?

If you don't like or just think there are better alternatives, what might they be (serious and funny responses are both great! serious ones though might generate some really good ideas for the NBA if they ever wanted to make such a move)

Big Bounce sounds silly....but i do think they need a better theme song and music during their broadcasts. Just some awful music. I suggest bringing back the NBA theme song from the 80s and 90s.

Sounds like a horrible idea. It's called the finals and it's a great easy recognizable name. NBA rating have been better than ever why change it?
