Pels GLeague Team Has A Name: Birmingham Squadron
quote:

The New Orleans Pelicans’ G League affiliate officially has a name: the Birmingham Squadron.

On Monday, the teams unveiled the new moniker, which ties in with the parent club’s branding and is a nod toward Alabama’s military history.

A squadron is one name for a group of pelicans. It also alludes to the 99th Pursuit Squadron — the Air Force’s first all-Black flying unit that trained in Tuskegee, Alabama — as well as Birmingham’s production of planes during World War II.

As I have said in other threads, this is one reason I fully expect us to use at least two 2nd round picks. We want to start that G League rebrand right

I like it. Part of the reason is it’s OURS. We’ve had to wait so long, almost last in the NBA, for this franchise to grow the brand to the G-League.

We need one of our resident Photoshop experts to change this logo from Squadron to SquadSons

Shreveport Squadron fits better than Birmingham with Barksdale right across the river

We added John Petty to our Gleague Squadron. Pelicans sure love them Alabama players.

I like Petty as a 3 and D prospect. If he can show that he can shoot 3s at a high level with good volume in the G-League, he could be a nice addition to watch out for in the future.

Guessing John Petty will end up with an Exhibit 10 contract with the Squadron. If nothing else...it's good "business"
