Default Fear The....Pelicans?

Worst team name ever

Quote:
NEW ORLEANS -- New Orleans Hornets owner Tom Benson is changing his team's nickname to the Pelicans and said the switch will create a bond with the city that could lead to a championship.

The Hornets announced Thursday they are going ahead with the name change. The NBA still has to approve it, but commissioner David Stern has said he wouldn't object to any name Benson chose. The league is expected to expedite the change at the start of next season.

The new color scheme is blue, gold and red, a departure from the Hornets' teal, purple, gold and white.

The real tragedy here is that the Hornets name is going away.

Now is the time for Charlotte to re-brand itself as the Charlotte Hornets. That'd be awesome.

Worst team name in the NBA is Raptors or Magic.


Should have been the New Orleans Brass


That's also not the logo

That's a deal bound to happen. Problem is the product on the floor and management at the Bobcats will stay the same.

90, where did you get that logo from? That isn't correct.

While the name isn't strong, it does reflect the area and I actually think the logoset isn't half bad when you have a Pelican to work with.

Yeah the one you posted is the one I'm seeing today. Maybe the other one was a prelim concept.

Logo looks decent...but still, Pelicans?

Bird mascots are cool.

Better than an insect like a hornet or yellow jacket.

Much better than a laker. What is a laker anyway?

I like Lakers. It's Unique. Not something like Tigers or Bulldogs.
But they were originally started in Minneapolis. The name was inspired by Minnesota's state nickname "Land of 10,000 Lakes"

Maybe it's because I live at the beach but I love Pelicans and have no issue with the name at all. Pelicans rule.

There are far worse names in every sport both college and pro. Hell even if you just used the bird names you can find a dozen or more that are just as odd if you really think about it.

Go Cocks!!!

They should have gone with "The Louisiana Purchase" as their team name. Also, bring back the Buzz!

The "Bobcats" are named after the shithead who was the first owner of the team. That's a truly awful name. I like the Pelicans as a team name. It fits the city of New Orleans, and pelicans are badasses.
