Report: Hornets becoming Pelicans
 
ESPN.com news services

The New Orleans Hornets are expected to become the New Orleans Pelicans, perhaps as early as the 2013-14 season, according to a Yahoo! Sports report.


New Orleans Hornets to change nickname to Pelicans, according to report - ESPN

Utah should never have been allowed to take Jazz name with them out of town...

They should rename themselves the Utah Choirboys and give us our Jazz Name Back...

I always thought the "Hurlers" was a great name, as well as the "Ballers"

The "Bourbon Street Vomit Spots" is also one of my favorites.

Makes sense as that will also be the name of our MLB team AGAIN, if we ever get it back...

Believe me when I tell you, that is NOT a popular opinion here in Utah. (voice of experience)

Makes sense. We actually have pelicans here, and Benson has actually owned the name for a while. I'd rather use it for baseball, since that's where it originated, but I'm just glad to see the name back, and glad the Hornets are finally changing.

Given our fondness for canes and our qbs last name I liked the breeze

I am not a fan of the NBA, but that is a really stupid name. It makes me ashamed that they're in Louisiana.
