About San Diego Dynasty???

Hello everyone, I'm new to this forum as I am in paintball and I have a curiosity, why the logo of the San Diego Dynasty have letters in Japanese and what they mean?

Thanks for your time...

Seeing as plenty of people get tattoos of asian characters spelling stuff they don't know, I'm hoping it means "Dynasty", and not "I love flowers and puppies" or even a declaration of their sexual orientation.

(Would also like to add I'm not making fun of Dynasty, as they happen to be one of my fav teams)

CLOSEST I could find were these characters:

朝优

which if you put it in google translate, you get "Toward the superior" but I found it using the words separately with "towards" and "excelent"

Dude, that's Chinese, not Japanese(well, maybe there are these two characters in Japanese). Trust me, I live in Taiwan. The two characters 朝代 are the Chinese form of the word "dynasty". They simply translated the team name to a foreign one.

I tried that and got 王朝 from Google translate...

Oddly enough though, 朝代 and 王朝 from Chinese to English is Dynasty
