Default New Orleans Hornets to become Pelicans ?

Because the New Orleans Hornets have very little regard for their fans, they will reportedly change their name to the New Orleans Pelicans.*

I guess the birds that make beach*lounging*such a treat are the perfect way to symbolize a basketball franchise.*

Yahoo! Sports cites a source who reports the nickname switch could take place as early as the 2013-2014 season. Hornets fans, start digging a hole big enough to stick your head in accordingly.*

And the award for dumbest name of a team in organized sports goes to.......

Seriously if you want to change the name make it something cool that your city is known for....

New Orleans Gators

Or better yet buy the name New Orleans Voodoo from the arena football league.

I think the pelican is the state bird of Louisiana, hence one reason for the name change.

Wow. What a stupid name. Sounds terrible and doesn't roll off the tongue at all.

Hornets > Pelicans
Sonics > Thunder

Pre-2000's NBA > 2000-present NBA

Jordan > James

If Dalton averages over 30 passes per game in 2014, I win. If he averages less than 30, you win. Loser can't post in any Dalton threads for 1 year. You game?

Meh. Thunder just sounds generic to me. It's not nearly as bad as "New Orleans Pelicans" though.

Let's go with something appropriate like New Orleans Levees because they always collapse under pressure.
