    Then how about the cavs from 3-4 years ago http://ecx.images-amazon.com/images/...UL._AA300_.jpg

    Also if the Fever are yellow, than why are the pacers considered gold?
    Pacers aren't gold either, they're yellow too. You don't get to change the name of colors just because it sounds better, I don't care what anyone says.

    I legitimately like this name change. Pelicans are some goofy *** birds. I can't wait to see this logo.

    Not a fan of the whole name change. I mean, Tom Benson bought a sports team, not some small business.

    As far as the actually name, Pelicans isn't bad.

    It'll be weird hearing and saying Indiana Pacers vs. New Orleans Pelicans when we play them.

    Love the name because it is unique to Major League Sports.

    I think it's about time pelicans get some **** exposure. They're always playing second fiddle to hawks, eagles, and falcons.

    Better than the Bobcats, and it has greater meaning to the state than just a random animal. I do think Brass would have been a much better name though. I just hate when teams pick names that have no meaning at all to the city or state they are in.

    Hopefully Charlotte can take the name Hornets back, and the colors.

    Should have gone with New Orleans Oil Slicks. And then they could call the bench players the "reserves".

    So now it's Utah's turn to relinquish the Jazz mascot to New Orleans right? I mean as long as we are giving mascots back to their rightful owners. No one goes to Utah for Jazz music....

    Why are they changing their name when they've been the New Orleans Hornets for 11 years? They must be desperate for an influx of merchandise sales.

    The Jazz have nothing to do with this. They've been the Utah Jazz for decades and have built up great history and a strong fanbase in that time.

    At this point, they should've just left it alone after building up a fanbase to support the New Orleans Hornets.

    I agree. Hornets is infinitely cooler than "Pelicans". That sounds like the name of some 1A baseball team in Florida or something.

    What if they play Kevin Love tough? Then we can hear him complain about "Tough Pels".

    It would be awesome if Charlotte dumps the "Bobcats" name though and takes the Hornets name back. The Charlotte Hornets used to have some sick merchandise back in the day that you'd see all over the place.

    How can you not like this?

    Gators? Brass? Rebels? Cajuns? Generals?

    Pelicans is awful. Worse than the Bobcats or Thunder, by far. And they should stick with the color scheme because purple works very well with the Mardi Gras thing.

    Charlotte Hornets is just classic 90's NBA and I love it. The Bobcats will definitely change their name now.

    I can get used to the Pelicans. I want the Bobcats to just go back to the 90's scheme. Retro is the new new. Ask the Warriors and Sixers.

    And the hive designed court. That was awesome.
