Thanks Silverfoxx - long time lurker decided to start posting after last night's stirring win!
I wouldn't mind Breakers. Those colors are slick.
Does anybody else really love the Brooklyn Nets redesign and court design? So simple and brilliant. If we DID go Pelicans that's really the only way I'd like it - maybe if we just did a simple 2-color scheme (like the Saints' classy black/gold) and have it look old school with a Pelicans logo like this: We could totally rip off the Brooklyn Net's "retro" theme if we used a plain vintage logo and a parquet court with one color v's white.
Breakers is kind of bold and old school. :huh2:
I hate ambiguous clues. Tautology.
Hey I saw Bigdub's uniform concept for the Breakers linked on a Saints message board once, but is there a thread or a place where I can view ALL of his concepts? I tried searching and had fun perusing old threads for an hour (my boss hates me) but I had no luck finding any of his concepts.
These are so beautiful. They'd instantly be a top 5 jersey in the current NBA along with the Wizards, 76ers, Warriors, Knicks, and Nuggets retros. I'd change the generic seagull into a pelican. I'd also love to see a grey home alternate as well as the royal blue road jersey. I'd also like to see "Davis 23" and "Gordon 10" instead of the gereric name/number just to make it really hit home. The court would be epic as well - imagine that wave creeping across the center court.
Bigdub took all of his work off of the site because he was pursuing making them for the hornets. Legal reasons he had to take them down, so nobody would steal his work etc.. I believe he has actually had contact with the Hornets. Not sure if he is working on anything for them but I think they looked at his concepts. Anyways his silence around here has to be good news.
So yesterday when I was trying to find BigDub's Breakers concept on Google, I stumbled upon this USFL news/history aggregating site and decided to email them to see if they had been contacted by anybody withing the Hornets for information on Breakers trademarks, etc. Realize it's a longshot but who knows?
Here's what they emailed back...

No, I can say with at least a reasonable amount of certainty that this isn’t going to happen. Two names have been registered for trademarks, “New Orleans Angels” and “New Orleans Spirit.” If I had to lay $5 on it, I’d go with Angels, to go along with the Saints.
Realize that we probably know more than this guy (this is old news to us and we all feel confident that these two nickname options are dead by now) but just thought it was worth sharing.
Great initiative and great info.
Pretend quote... "We came out and played Angel's basketball"..not sure how i feel about this.
Angels and Spirit kinda sound like WNBA team names to me... oh well
i do like the Breakers jerseys and I could see myself really liking that name.
Angels & Spirit is just a big turn off to me. We aren't the WNBA
Hate how all these minor league teams get our top choices :hot:
Breakers is a name I can definitly be proud of. Wouldn't be my first or second choice but it's definitely is a top the list. Plus I agree that the logo and color scheme is also really nice.
Gail Benson just said in interview before the jazz game that the new colors will be Red Gold and Navy
yea black and gold with red trim woulda been tiiiigggghhhttttt
and YES she did say new name next season
