Well it hasn't been officially approved by the league but I see no reason for them to deny the name

be this.

Pelicans is unique. And fun.


What is unique about it? Does every other state in the country not have pelicans? It's a big, dumb, clumsy bird that had to be saved from extinction. Meh.

They don't have to deny it or confirm it. Just let it float. If they get asked about it, just say nothing.

Thunder is 4,000,000 times less lame than Pelicans. When I hear thunder, I fear lightning. When I hear Pelicans, I feel like I'm about to get shite on.



Dude come on. Its a freaking sound. Really? Naming your team after a sound? Almost as bad as Magic.

Thunder sounded like the most ridiculous name in sports history when it was first announced. It doesn't sound as bad now because we are used to it and they are good.

Bunch of 13 year olds. Hearing the name is supposed to strike fear in the hearts of our opponents?

Call the team the New Orleans Batmen, then.

Get over it. If this is our name, so be it. Stop crying like bitches and rep your fricking team!

I'm not disputing that. That doesn't make Pelicans any better.

I like Pelicans, to be honest. Don't love it though. Crescent City Pelicans is better than New Orleans Pelicans
