There are much worse names in professional sports... people just aren't used to "Pelicans" yet. The jerseys look good, similar to the Atlanta Hawks it seems.
Name one. Pelicans is awful.
I like the color scheme. The name is going to take some time to get used to. I wonder what Louisiana residents think of the name.
bwahahhahah pelicans, lmao!
The hell they can!
Anil V. George, the attorney who typically handles the trademarks involving NBA brand names, filed trademarks on five new potential franchise names on behalf of the New Orleans Hornets NBA Limited Partnership….

The trademarks:

New Orleans Pelicans
New Orleans Rougarou
New Orleans Mosquitos
New Orleans Swamp Dogs
New Orleans Bullsharks

mosquitos? lol
Rougarou? Nice. Nothing like scaring the kids away from basketball by naming your team after a scary legendary monster.
