10 Funny Intramural Team Names

Slum Dunk Millionaires

It's hard to imagine that an Oscar-winning film about India's slums could be transformed into a funny intramural name for American basketball teams, yet somehow this unlikely connection works. According to ESPN, the name Slum Dunk Millionaires originated with a five-on-five basketball league at Notre Dame in 2009, with countless other teams using variations of the name since then. One popular version, Slam Dunk Millionaires, serves as a popular team name for slam-dunk or free throw competitions, though many standard intramural basketball teams also use it, including the 2010 University of Iowa women's champions.
