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.

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.

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