re: Benson owns "New Orleans Pelicans" name

IMO the only color scheme that makes sense is purple, green, and yellow or gold.

Pelicans is better than a lot of the crap people have been posting the past few days. But I think Hornets is still better.

I would assume that those that would want the Pelicans are the younger posters who do not know the history of the New Orleans Pelicans. It was the name of 2 former New Orleans baseball teams here and would not appeal to many as a basketball team name.

Pelican does not fit a basketball name.

think about it

"The New Orleans Pelicans are the NBA Champions"

Nah!

I would assume anyone who follows sports in SELA knows who the New Orleans Pelicans were

I think "Krewe" is horrible yet it seems to be the most popular.


The best one I have heard is the New Orleans Groove. I think that fits as a basketball name.

I will say that that pelican mockup is

Really? I thought that was some finely crafted hyperbole. The fact remains that MLB and the NBA have different primary demographics which means different mascots would have different fits with the two leagues.

Because, 76ers, Knicks (short pants), and Celtics appeal to the youth of America.
