New Orleans Pelicans lol

so they're thinking to change their name from Hornets to Pelicans.

of course it's good they're giving up the Hornets name and logo which they stole from Charlotte and which has nothing to do with New Orleans. Pelicans is a weird choice for a basketball team though...I mean they're a pretty clumsy and not very threatening birds. but who knows it might work.

Some fan-made logos:






Big games are easy than the other games, unfortunately. Every times we have the control the games, under the control the games, during the games we had the some possibilities, some big chances, some big okazyons, something like that but what can I do, sometimes? And….it’s the football, that’s the football, something happened. Everything is something happened. - Fatih Terim

this Pelican with a top hat logo is pretty awesome...having green, gold and black as their colours might be cool too.

Ragin' Cajuns
Tigers (Civil War theme, maybe outdated)
Brass (corny, but goes along with the music theme)

Yeah, but LSU are Tigers & ULL are the Ragin' Cajuns. Stealing from local college teams wouldn't be cool.

They didn't steal Hornets, the franchise was moved and they kept the name since it wasn't a SonicsGate type of situation.

And, if anything, Pelicans sounds better than the Bobcats, I mean, really. Bobcats? Also sounds better than the Thunder. Oklahoma City really should've went with Barons or Bombers, though its understandable why they didn't go with the latter.

Silly mascot, but a sidenote: Greivis Vasquez has been kicking butt for them. Hopefully Eric Gordon's signing will help this team.

Don't they have loads of gators in Louisiana?

New Orleans Gators would be cool.

Well in college, but there's no Florida pro-sports team using it, and it fits NO aswell.

Even in pro sports there's examples for using the same nicknames tbh.

Gators are even more clumsy on land than Pelicans and can't even jump or fly...not a name for a basketball team IMO.

Let's be real here, pretty much 99% of the current names would sound weird and not a name for a basketball team if you first heard them.

Just cause we got used to them they sound normal and cool, same would apply for Pelicans in 30-50 years.

My problem with Pelicans is you can't really make a shortcut for it('Cans ?? alm, which you must, and it has too many syllables in it.

Telling you guys, the Trumpets. Or the Nawleans Saxophonists, which you can shorten down to the Sax.

"The NBA has filed trademarks for the New Orleans Pelicans, amongst four other potential nicknames on behalf of the New Orleans Hornets NBA Limited Partnership.

The Rougarou, Mosquitos, Swamp Dogs and Bullsharks are the other nicknames that have been filed for trademark.

A swamp dog is a Cajun nickname for an alligator, while Rougarou refers to a beast from Louisiana folklore.

New Orleans will likely adopt a red, blue and gold color scheme."

Some cool names there - Rougarou and Swamp Dogs being the highlight imo.

those other four are certainly far worse than Pelicans
