Seymour would have been the perfect mascot for a New Orleans team in the movie Semi Pro.

But honestly, they should steal the Jazz name back.





Take the Jazz back and let Utah pick a more geographically/historically accurate name.

Have you never heard of merchandise?

Also check out the reddit thread on the topic 90% of general nba fans agree pelicans suck and brass (or even Krewe) is better

And you think merchandise sales will suffer because of the pelican branding?

Laugh it up all you want. No matter what the name is you'd all be bitching or laughing.

New Orleans is all about being unique, offbeat, and incomprehensible to outsiders. This name fits us like a glove.

Is it what we all wanted? No. Could we agree on any name? No.

You know what it is? It's us. It's ours.

I'm on board.
