    Re: New Orleans Pelicans

    Apparently Charlotte is taking back the Hornets name too. Anything to get Robert Johnson's name off of the "Bobcats"

    Hopefully they can bring this back too:

    Re: New Orleans Pelicans

    "I own the rights to the nickname, so I got to use it right?"

    Something tells me the Pelicans won't go over well. No change is better than change in this case.

    Edit: I can understand the change if the Hornets will revert back to Charlotte, but the Pelicans? really?

    It really should be the New Orleans Jazz, but that would be too confusing to pull off.

    I dont know about that. Just have to convince Utah to become the Salt Lakes or the Tabernacles. Isn't ute derogatory to the natives? Seems like the state of Utah struggles with nicknames.

    Myrtle Beach's Class A team is the Pelicans and their logos are bad ***, imo.

    Pelicans? This would not have been my first choice.

    They were considering krewe, which is a Mardi Gras Term for the groups. That I could get behind.

    Yeah lets all give back the nicknames to the cities that had a team before. Los Angeles and Utah can pick new names and we can go back to the Minnesota Lakers and New Orleans Jazz among others

    Re: New Orleans Pelicans

    Come on now - everybody knows Utah and New Orleans should have made that trade a long time ago - bring the Jazz back to New Orleans and give the Hornets to Utah considering their obsession with bees.

    Hopefully they can bring this back too:
    Unpossible. They'd have to rebuild the Charlotte Coliseum first.

    Love it. So glad it isn't something singular.
