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.

Yahoo! Sports, citing numerous sources, reports the team also considered Krewe and Brass as potential nicknames.

Lol, all of these are BAD
Pelicans...Anthony Davis... New Orleans has to be the least marketable team now
I also read that MJ would consider putting the Hornets name back in Charlotte and dropping the Bobcats name.
I cannot get jiggy with this ish.

Sure, as soon as I'm done watching the Utah Jizz vs Memphis Gheys game.

BobCats was a very stupid choice, I remember the "Charlotte Flight" was a possible name and sounded pretty cool... Pelicans... I don't know, sounds too much like a high school team. Can't be as bad as Nuggets though

I don't even know if it's that bad.... s**t some of the NFL names are odd sounding (Browns, Packers, even Vikings are a bit lame)

Vikings isn't bad. They were warriors. Cardinals is pretty stupid. At least the other bird names are raptors. Redskins is so f**ked up it should be banned. A ram is a goat. A f**king goat. lol
