Discuss.Is it good or bad for nba/organization. ect

Personally i think the name is a little soft... Pelicans?? not very intimidating......

"Magic" isn't intimidating either.

From what I read, there's a Pelican on the Lousiana state seal and state flag so it makes sense.




But yeah, it's kinda weak.

There should be a rule that says if you move an existing team you have to change the name. That way New Orleans could just be the Jazz like they should be.

I can't wait to see the logo.

Will it be a pelican playing basketball? Or perhaps a pelican with its beak acting as the basket?

I'm just dying to see.

what an utterly stupid, pathetic, and drab team name.

I know it's the state bird and all, but what the hell. The marketing folks couldn't come up with something better? Why not celebrate Louisiana's french heritage (like the saints). I can think of two names off the bat that are a hell of a lot better than pelican.

And the name "Lakers" would have remained in an area with actual lakes.
