New Orleans has so much rich & identifiable history, they deserve better than the Pelicans for NBA team name. It's even a weak,floppy bird.

Bull shite. Pelicans are no joke.

I'm a big fan of this, it's original. Has anyone ever actually been intimidated by a team nickname? I do see them putting "PELS" on the uniforms at some point instead of the full word. I think this will turn out better than people think.



Agreed. I'm pretty sure "Pels" will be the name used in "chants" or what the frick ever in the Arena. Three syllables is too bulky . . . imo,fwiw, etc.

That's a point I've made. There is no reasonable shortening of it and "pelicans" is just an awkward word to use contextually.

Look, I get that it's the state bird. I personally have no issue with pelicans as a species, but that's beside the point. It just doesn't work, in my opinion, as a team name for several reasons.

Not happening. I'm sorry, I just can't. It's terrible. I'll be a Hornets fan for life.

Don't you think that could present a problem next season?

Does this mean, if Charlotte gets the name back, you will no longer support the team in New Orleans and become a fan of the Charlotte Bobcat/Hornets?

Nah. My creole blue may clash with the Cleveland Cavaliers jerseys all over the arena, but it won't bother me at all.

I'm unsure if you truely hate the new name or just trolling b/c you like the attention your negativity is bringing


Trust me, I'm not a fan of the change at all, but at some point you just have to accept it. All the ones complaining will at some point conform like the rest of us :(

This is literally the most ridiculous thing you've ever posted.

You won't be a fan of the team any more because they didn't choose the name you wanted.

Grow up dude.

You are a moron. I will always be a fan of the team, but I will always think Pelicans is a shitty name. Is that really hard to comprehend?

Damn, boy, you are way too defensive about this dumb shite.

Probably when all of my creole blue hornets gear is too worn out to wear any more.

I really do think it's a downright terrible name, but like I've said plenty of times, it's not going to make me stop following the team. That said, it is kind of funny the way some are defending it like their mother's honor.

You said you will be a Hornets fan for life.

The team will no longer be the Hornets. In fact, Charlotte will probably take the name back. Therefore, you will no longer be a fan of THIS team.

Because of a name.

I'm not trying to be defensive at all. I just think the reaction to a name is extremely juvenile.

I guess I can't expect much less from a such a cynical internet culture.

You need to lick my taint. It's more than apparent that you are obsessed with my a-hole.
