Big whoop!! There are pelicans all up and down the coast. This has ZERO to do with New Orleans and by far one of THE DUMBEST names for a professional sports team. The New Orleans Pelicans..yeah..thats just LAUGHABLE! Whats the most menacing aspect of a pelican..that it might poop on you?

CM, as I have stated, my h.s mascot was a Pelican (Port Allen), very embarrasssing trying to conjure an attitude of spirit and fight with a peculiar looking bird. I think we will be fine once the marketing gurus talk some sense into the NBA or whoever conjured up this feeble idea in the first place.

... we could start a letter writing campaign, ... but then I'd feel obligated to watch more basketball & IDK if I'm willing to do that.

Right!!

IMO they wasted a good name on the arena team. The Voodoo would be an awesome name for an NBA team. Plus it makes more sense as it relates to the regions history. Pelicans...pfft..SMH

I know that back in the day there was the New York Yankees and New York Giants in both football and baseball, why couldn't the basketball team in New Orleans be the Saints too? Is there a rule against it?

Re: Report: Hornets becoming Pelicans

no rule against dual naming, esp. when the owner is the same guy.

New Orleans Basketball Saints....
just like they used to say St. Louis Football Cardinals...

Well in that case, why don't they use Voodoo? It's a cool name and it's awesome colors and theme.

Way to think outside of the box, Crusader! ... Saints would be another good option ... along with Krewe, Voodoo, Catahoulas ... too bad I didn't win that recent Powerball like I was planning on ... I coulda' bought a professional sports franchise, maybe the Hornets, and given it a cool name.
