Blue, red, and gold would be pretty boring colors for the Pelicans, that's the only downside of this for me. Hopefully they'll include a ton of gold in the uni's. enough red and blue in the Association
That's the biggest downside to this rebrand. Mind you, the rebrand itself isn't bad, but I just hope that the Hornets name returns to Charlotte.
What would the present NO Hornets rebrand to, then? Maybe they can do a swap with Utah and get the Jazz name back, then Utah could swap with Memphis and become the Grizzlies, they could swap with Minnesota to get the Wolves name, and then Minnesota and L.A. could finally swap between Lakers and Wolves.
Pelicans seems to be the frontrunner if you can believe it.
I'm disappointed to see New Orleans is changing, but 1) it looks like the Hornets name will go to Charlotte and 2) I really like the Pelicans name.
Ladies and gentlemen, your New Orleans Pelicans.
Why decide to change all of a sudden? I guess the new owner wants to put his stamp on the team. Pelicans, eh? Hopefully the owner's name isn't Eli.
No it's Tom, as in Tom Benson, owner of the New Orleans Saints.
First thing I thought of.
I literally spit out my root beer and was glad my computer didn't crash. It is such a horrible name. What do you guys think?
It's funny, the Pelicans name is getting trashed on social media. I work for the Myrtle Beach Pelicans, and when I introduce myself as working in the front office of the Pelicans to people who haven't heard of us, the most common reactions is, "Oh what a cool name!" Maybe it's a "minor league" name, but I've always loved it.
I'm calling BS on this.
It's too soft of a nickname for an NBA organization. Sure, the name may work in a geographical sense, but it wouldn't be my 1st choice. Plus, how would the image of a pelican be cohesive along side of the color scheme of Red, Navy Blue, and Yellow/Athletic Gold? The report also said that Tom Benson considered the names Brass & Krewe as new nicknames. Between the three, I would have chosen "Krewe" just because, but anyway, this is definitely not favorable. At least the chances of the return of the Charlotte Hornets has increased heavily.

This is what I think of whenever I hear a team called the Pelicans:

There is no God....
I hope that's not the real logo. Too cheesy, if that's appropriate to say. But then again, it's not because its the same ball used in the Hornets logo. Look at how the lines are colored in up top, those are the Hornet's arms.
^^ The Pels aren't even going to be using those colors once the rebrand happens. An obvious fake.
Do it, Mike!
Pelicans are pretty bad ass. They'll eat smaller birds.
I will support the Pelicans name, only if this is used often.
