    Raiders
    Рэдрз

    New Jersy Raiders
    Ну Джерзи Рэдрз

    There is no equivalent Russian sound for the long "i" as in Knights.
    The closest sound I can think of is the long "e" sound as in beats.

    Knights
    Нитс (pronounced "Neets")

    Black Knights
    Блак Нитс (pronounced "Black Neets")
    Какая разница, умереть богатым или бедным?

    Какой толк от богатства если ты не счастлив.

    I just made a mistake. I was looking for a single Russian letter that resembled the long "i" sound in English and I could not find one.
    I forgot that "ай" sounds similar to the long "i".

    How would you transliterate "White Knights" in Russian?
    Юайть Найтс ?

    There is no "w" sound in Russian.

    The w sound is mostly transliterated like "у" but sometimes it transliterates like "в": Watt - Уатт/Ватт, Wattson - Ватсон/Уотсон.

    I think he's asking for those words to be translated into Russian but written in Latin script, not how to transcribe the English words into Cyrillic.

    In that case:

    Raiders - Всадники - Vsadniki (when you say it, "v" sounds like "f", accent on a)

    New Jersey Raiders - Всадники из Нью Джерси - Vsadniki iz New Jersey

    Knights - Рыцари - Rytsaree (accent on y)

    Black Knights - Чёрные рыцари - Chorn(bl)ye Rytsaree

    How about that?

    It's times like this when we miss Belorussian, which has exactly what we need - a normal Ў !
