Does it bother anyone else that the Bulls are Los Bulls, and not Los Toros on the (multiple) NBA Latin night?

Actually, most Spanish speakers routinely use the English name when referring to NBA teams, hence "Los Bulls (de Chicago)." There may be some regional differences though, but at least in Spain you would be laughed out if you said "Los Toros" referring to the Bulls.
