Homophonic Influence

Boston opened its NBA preseason losing to a Turkish team.  They have been surprisingly popular in that country for years, even before they had Semih Erden.  You can come up with a dozen theories, but I have always leaned to the linguistic one.  The team name sounds a lot like Seljuks

There's a comic bit in there, I suppose.
