The new owner of the New Orleans Hornets, Tom Benson, wants a new name for his new $338 million purchase that will sit next to the Saints in his portfolio.
We’d like to change it tomorrow. We have not gotten that approved, but we’re not letting up on it, either.
I’m not in favor of changing the team names especially because a lot of the NBA teams don’t make sense (Lakers & Clippers in LA, Grizzlies in Memphis, Jazz in Utah) so if Lakers in LA was good enough for West, Wilt, Baylor, Kareem, Magic, Worthy, Exel (yeah I said it), Shaq and Kobe then the Hornets should be good enough for Tom Benson and Eric Gordon.
