    Hate the Buccaneers, mainly because I can't stand the team in Tampa. Also, it's not really a cool name.

    Let's play! With any luck, we'll get a complete rebrand as well. Since we can't have Jazz back, I'm still a "Buccaneers" guy. The name has basketball history in our city and local relevence. Just "jazz" up the color scheme to purple, green and gold.

    The only name id want besides the current one is Jazz. This club has been here for almost 10 years,minus the katrina period, a name change now would be stupid. Unless its Neonights.

    NEONIGHTS! Re: the ten years thing, while that's true the Hornets still aren't really ingrained in the city. I mean, do they even get more than two minutes coverage on any local media outlet not counting Gerry and this website? Obviously there's a sizeable ticket base and a group of hardcore fans but it just seems a lot of people around the city and region are totally oblivious/indifferent to the fact that New Orleans has an NBA team.

    In the years the Hornets have been in New Orleans the team has played in 2 cities and still has strong identity ties to it's original home.

    For all intents and purposes the Hornets are like a vagabond franchise. They have called 3 cities home in less than a decade. If any team in the NBA needs a re-branding it's the Hornets.

    Clay re-branded the Sonics for several reasons, the main one is that he wanted OKC to have it's own franchise. It's worked, while they will always be the Sonics, they don't have any visual ties to the Sonics. The Hornets look exactly like the would in CLT right now, with the exception of the FDB.

    Personally I feel like a re-branding would breathe new life into the franchise, with our history that can't be a bad thing.

    Well, it would help if the third most populous parish in the metro area could actually watch the games on TV...but that's another topic.

    A football game can't stop hurricanes.

    It can't fix levees.

    Or rebuild houses.

    But it can let a city know...

    That it's a city once again.

    Welcome back, New Orleans.

    I like Soul and Blues also. They get my vote. My first choice would be Jazz but that will never happen. So I think a total rebrand would be best. New name, new colors, new jerseys, new logo, new staff! Though I really like the FDB and don't mind the hornets name,I think a rebrand and new look would give this team a new identity.It would also relate better with the city and fans.

    Out of those two names, Blues would be my first pick. Blue is my favorite color so i'm partial! I'm from Mississippi so that name to me works better not just for New Orleans but the whole gulf coast region.I also think it would be sick to have some all black jerseys with blue trim similar to the CP3 swingman jerseys they sell in the Hive store.

    I would love the buccaneers, mainly because of those awesome throwbacks we wore a while back. They looked better than all the other jerseys we have had combined

    -Swamp Rats
    - VD'S
    - Corny Dogs

    and my personal favorite

    -Burros de fuego

    don't like Bucs for 2 reasons 1) tampa and 2) bucks ... we're an original city and we need an original name.

    Of course it should be JAZZ, and if any amount of money could make the "reclamation" happen, maybe Chouest is the guy to answer our prayers. i really think the effort & expense would be worth fully exploring (can you imagine how much merchandise he'd sell if it happened??)

    Other than JAZZ, the only thing I prefer over Hornets is BRASS.

    either way, please ditch the teal and bring back true mardi gras colors.

    THe New Orleans Soul is actually growing on me a bit, but I love the Brass.

    Hate the Buccaneers. Too associated with Tampa Bay at this point.

    Being from the Mississippi Gulf Coast and now living in Lake Charles, I would also prefer a Gulf South moniker.

    Even if we don't get Jazz back, and we are not ... I would have no problem at all with shipping both the name "Hornets" and the color Teal to CLT immediately. Looking around the internet CLT fans seems to be excited because, like some of us, are hoping to get their proper name back.
