Lately, basketball team’s benches have been taking on identity’s of their own- being given nicknames. Naming the bench, which holds players that are good- but not quite ready to be starters, is usually highly amusing- usually.

While the Bulls’ was given “Bench Mob” last season, this year the Clippers’ bench got a nickname we find to be horrific. ESPN writes:

“Dan Woike of the Orange County Register threw out ‘Mob Deep,’ but he found out the New York Knicks had used that nickname last year. Woike then got a tweet from a San Francisco Bay Area follower with the handle @squidwai and ‘A Tribe Called Bench’ was born.

Over the past three games, the Clippers have started to play highlights of the second unit to A Tribe Called Quest’s ‘Scenario’ and the #ATribeCalledBench hashtag has started trending on Twitter in Los Angeles during Clippers games.”
