Hornets Changing their name to The Pelicans | Tony Montana approves

Published on December 5th, 2012 by David Astramskas | 3,277 views



I guess Pelicans is better than Krewe and Brass which were the other two considerations for the new name of the New Orleans Hornets starting as early as the 2013-2014 season.   Considering the Pelican is the state bird and is on the state flag and seal it might as well be the name of the basketball franchise but I just wish cities would keep the team names when moved to another city.  If LA can keep the Lakers or Utah can keep the Jazz I don’t see why NO can’t keep the Hornets.

Maybe it’s because my first NBA game was a Hornets game I’m being a little sentimental.  I can still see a pre injured Larry Johnson running down the court with Mugsy Bogues and cursing out Alonzo for being a contract holdout.  Oh well. Pelicans it is so fly Pelican fly.
