I know myself and several others have been involved in the rebrand threads for a while. One thing that a few of us bought up was how a brand (unis, colors, etc.) can help make a nickname. Admittedly, when I first heard Pelicans I was like "LOL WTH NOOOOO." But when I saw some nice concepts for it (BigDub plus maybe a couple others like above), it grew on me after being able to see it nicely done. Wasn't my favorite, but it's cool. I dig it. Unique name. Non-inanimate object or fictional figure.
And if Gayle's color thing is true, yeah it sounds like a weird combo, but if schemed similarly to the above, it will go hard. So personally, I'm hoping for a fire logo, color scheme, and jerseys to really bring the name together.
Winning solves everything
"Spurs? what is fierce about a boot accessory?!?!"
Know what's an even better way to choose name? It's 1995. What's a popular movie in the last two years? Jurassic Park!
Know what's an even betterer way to choose a name? What's a name of something on a basketball court? Now, can't be the Goals. Or the Baskets. Or the Balls.
How about the Nets!

Not that it matters. If there was a vote and Pelicans won people would still complain and say it was rigged.
So what are some nicknames for the Pelicans?
P Cans? Canes? Pels?
This seems like a good sponsorship idea for Canes.
A focus group or something like that is a far better way to judge reaction than a poll or by leaking names.
For those hoping that's what this is, it seems like a reach given other ways to judge reaction.
think he means NEW ORLEANS city flag.
