Softer? Gay?

Celtics, Nets, 76ers, Cavaliers, Pacers, Heat, Magic, Wizards, Clippers, Lakers, Mavericks, Rockets, Spurs, Nuggets, Thunder, Trail Blazers, Jazz...

Just because you dislike the name doesn't mean you have to stop using common sense. More than half of the leagues teams names have no "intimidation" factor.

Raptors can eat you

Magic isn't frightning unless someones casts ultima or meteor

WTF is a pacer?

Thunder isn't scary

Chicken nuggets are good

Someone could strangle you with a net but that's grasping at straws.

re: NBA team names that are softer than Pelicans.....


So I was thinking of a few current team names that we are just accustomed to that people would lose their minds if they chose a similar name for the Pelicans.

Lakers - Bayouers
Spurs - Shrimp Boots
Nets - Crawfish Traps
Celtics - Cajuns (but pronounce it Sajuns)
Kincks - Overalls (but they will go by the Overs)
Heat - Humidity
Clippers - Pirouges
Nuggets - Crude Oil
Pacers - I don't even know what the equivalent is
Magic - Tobassco

Just think of thinks in perspective. A large number of the names that you are so accustomed to are really terrible.

They are named after the pace car in the Indy 500. How awful is that?

Been getting pretty annoyed by everyone on ESPN calling Pelicans "the worst sports nickname ever"

Last I checked this is a league that has some pretty awful names-
Thunder, Magic and Nets sound like WNBA names
Kings, Clippers, Lakers, Heat, Spurs, Nuggets, Jazz, Bobcats, Pacers, Bucks, and Wizards are just awful names with no "intimidation factor"
The Knicks are named after a style of friggin pants, for God's sake
In the long run, this really isn't that bad of a name

The Raptors were named solely because Jurassic Park was popular at the time. Silly Canadians.

Do some research on Pelicans. They are far from the softest mascot.

Not sure that the Kings, Bucks, or Bobcats belong on the list. The Wizards are debatable. I think those are all fine generic names. It is not a necessity that your team mascot have some connection to your region.
