What Are the Major Sports Teams That Do Not End in the Letter “s”?

The National Basketball Association’s Oklahoma City Thunder, Miami Heat, Orlando Magic, and Utah Jazz; Major League Baseball’s Boston Red Sox and Chicago White Sox; and the National Hockey League’s Colorado Avalanche, Minnesota Wild, and Tampa Bay Lightning are among the nine top professional sports organisations with American bases whose names do not end with the letter “s.” The names of the mascots for each of the 32 National Football League teams end in the plural “s.”

Since teams can be found in the plural, the majority of their names end with a “s.” The two baseball clubs’ names, “Sox,” are a play on the word “socks,” while the other teams’ names are plural without the letter “s.”
