Thread: Hornets changing name to New Orleans Pelicans

    Heres a picture of the old New Orleans Pelicans minor league baseball team. Even uses Blue, Red, Gold. Maybe where they got the idea?

    They could just replace the baseball bat with a uni brow
    If games are won and lost on a calculator and piece of paper, then why do we bother to play them?

    Maybe they should try to trade for Paul George and his "scoop" shot??????

    Should have gone with the New Orleans Voodoo.

    Even a kid friendly version of dark magic and whatnot could be a pretty cool theme.

    I already associate them with their "Mardi Gras" alternates. They should just make that their team colors.

    That is *****ing retarded. Who comes up with these names? Not a chance in hell a fan would say that is a great name for a team.

    Seeing as Utah, New Orleans, and Charlotte are looking to change their names. Why not do a three way trade, lol.

    New Orleans Jazz
    Charlotte Hornets
    Utah Bobcats

    They all make absolute perfect sense.

    I guess we can't make THAT much fun, what the hell's a "Pacer?" And don't tell me, I know, but it's still a pretty goofy name. We got used to the "Magic" after awhile, same with the Jurassic Park craze created "Raptors."

    They should've kept the Jazz at least that's tied to New Orleans.

    What is a pacer, exactly?

    It wasn't about being the team everyone loved, it was about beating the teams everyone else loved.

    Honestly, I do like Brass. Should have went with that one. The New Orleans Brass.
    I agree. Then during trade rumors, New Orleans sources could be quoted as "Brass brass"

    The Pacers nickname references the pace car in auto racing and a style of harness-racing(horses).

    No, I get that, but what's a pacer? Is it a part of a pace car? A type of pace car?

    The Cajuns would have been good, or if they insist on an animal, the Crawdads...

    One thing is true
    about the pelican.
    Its beak can hold more
    than its belly can.

    @JADubin5: SOLUTION: New Orleans takes "Magic" from Orlando. Orlando changes name to "Orlando Future Lakers Centers."

    I'll stick with the Mardi Gras theme and suggest The Beads.

    Think of the fun it would add to promotional nights.

    My guess is this paves the way for Charlotte to change their mascot back to the Hornets. Again, just my guess.
    I'm from Charlotte and grew up with the Horners. I still live in NC so I'm right in the middle of it.

    I don't understand why everyone wants the Hornets name back. Obviously it would be nice, however, at this point it would just be confusing...has anything like this ever happened?

    It should be the New Orleans Jazz. Let Utah be the Pelicans.

    I do like the Pelicans more than some of the modern team names like the Heat or the Thunder, or the Fever.

    the name sucks, but we'll get used to it. Oklahoma City Thunder is a terrible name but I barely notice anymore
