Mad Ants, Carl Bennett in USAToday

Former executive sees NBA come full circle in Fort Wayne - Carl Bennett was a front executive for the Fort Wayne (Ind.) Zollner Pistons 50 years ago when the franchise moved to Detroit. Bennett, 91, stayed behind and plans to be in attendance when the NBA returns to Fort Wayne on Nov. 23 in the form of a D-League expansion team — the Mad Ants — which will play host to Tulsa. Bennett, who played a role in the Pistons coming into the NBA in 1948 after playing in the National Basketball League and coaching the team, spoke with USA TODAY about the Mad Ants.

The question I'd have asked is, what do you think of a nutty name like the Mad Ants? Good marketing, or just lame?
