I went back to the drawing board, literally, and re-worked the design and colors so that I could get the best possible 'blend' of New Orleans elements as I could. IMO, this is one of the best concepts that I have created, even if it was just for fun. Comment away!
Can Joe or someone get these to the Hornets?!?!

Wow, I love the color scheme...and the design down the sides is a fantastic touch.
Damn man. That's friggin' brilliant.
Really cool job!
I still prefer Hornets and our blue pinstripes but if they did rebrand to these I wouldnt be too upset because those are really cool.

I would buy that home shirt and I haven't bought a basketball jersey since the days of Dan Majerle.

This will be up at Hornets247 (and probably all over the world of Hornets internet) tomorrow for sure.
really great job as always man. love the side striping designs and also how you didn't totally abandon the teal, it works well as an accent. my only thing that i don't love is the logo with the crescent and the music note, it just doesn't have the right feel for me

I can already imagine the actual gold alternates we could wear.
Where can I buy one? Really nice job, hopefully we can see the day that this will be our new name and Jerseys.
Truly, I love this rebrand idea. The "Krewe" is just so much more New Orleans than the "Hornets" is. The colors are perfect. I love it - great job man!
I would like to see what gold pin stripes on the white jersey would look like.
As much as I'm against a total rebrand, I wouldn't mind seeing the Hornets adopt these colors/ jersey design as their primary. Nice work, Bigdub.
With purple and pinstripes from days gone by, I trumpet Hugo's name to the NOLA sky. When rebranders and posers abuse their might, beware my power, TEAL LANTERN'S LIGHT!

As a longtime hornets fan, I've alway been against a rebrand, but the time might be ripe and this is a very nice design. I just don't like the name that much, I really prefered the New Orleans Brass (or does that team already exist ).
Looks awesome, Bigdub
