I am a HUGE Utah Jazz fan (I live in Utah) and I think we should give the name back to New Orleans. Utah has no business using the name Jazz. It is like Metallica calling themselves Taylor Swift.

It's not the name. I do think it would help, but that is a very marginal issue which I honestly believe had to do more with Rita's input. Will it help the Hornets get elite players? No. Will they win more game? Nope. We already had the Jazz and it went belly up. Call it NBA team #37, or whatever, I could care less, just go get us some stars.

I like Krewe I also like Vodoo like that arena football team benson had at one time. I also like "New Orleans Hot Sauce" .. If Crystal or Tabasco didnt set up to the plate to sponsor them after that.. well

Saw this comment to the article:

"Call 'em The New Orleans Mormons.
Won't be long before Utah wants to trade names."
