    Yea, ArcAngels/Angels is pretty awful for a basketball team. Also, pelicans is bad

    If we are reserving names and logos could this be happening sooner then we thought (this offseason?)

    Angels is the one name I could get behind.

    Spirit is a great WNBA name but no way could any self respecting NBA team call themselves that.

    I'd rather Keep hornets then being called the Spirit or Angels.

    I'm ok with Angels. Between the two in a poll it would probably win 90%+. Hopefully they do so if these are true.

    I'm guessing that's how most will feel.

    I had a feeling Benson would want some sort of integration between the teams. I just wish we could avoid retreads.

    I am thinking this news will now prompt the big Angels vs. Spirit debate....the only 2 things we can count on are: 1. that our opinions matter very, very little (if at all) and 2. this franchise will be supported regardless of what name is ultimately chosen...

    Ha I'll start it off

    Angels: There is already a pro team called the Angels so that name is weak

    Spirit: Blows my mind that people think this is a good name for a MENS basketball team. That's what our cheer squad should be called

    I could live with angels but I wouldn't want a crazy logo like the arcangels one. It looks cool but its too busy, simple and clean is always the best bet when it comes to logos.

    I also hope its not Black and Gold color scheme...allow this team to have somewhat of their own identity. I would like Navy and Gold.

    If Bigdub has taught me anything its that ANY nickname can be ok if the logo and colors are done well.... That being said... I would freak out pretty hard about being a hardcore Spirit fan.. I could live with Angeles.

    Edit: ALSO PLEAAAASE BENSON LET US HAVE OUR OWN COLORS! NO BLACK AND GOLD NBA TEAM!

    No, angels, or spirits, knights or any part of a king's (which is a franchise already) court, nola is too unique for that, since we cant get jazz back, go with the originators, pays hommage to all that nola has done culturally for the US. For short, call the team the OGs, that has meaning too if u know what it stands for.

    It's so lame to try and "integrate" the two teams, really amateur.

    Angels? Wait a minute? That's only half the name. It's ok but incomplete.

    What about Arcangels? That's epic. Come on mannnn.....

    Emeka Okafor - Joe Smith - Carmelo Anthony - Manu Ginobili - Jason Williams

    Al Jefferson - James Posey - Aaron McKie - Shaun Livingston

    Calling on Bigdub

    How's the Pilots concept coming? Maybe it can swoop in and save the day!

    I could live with Angels. For what it's worth, Benson is very religious.

    I'm not so into the Spirits.

    It all comes down to the branding that the team/league/Adidas put together for the name.

    I mean, something like this would be awful:


    But the name could work.

    How about White and Gold as the colors? That gives Benson a bit of brand unity (Gold), without making it seem like the NBA team is just the little brother of the Saints. You might need a third, darker color to trim with. I'm guessing gold aways wouldn't work.

    I'm imagining a teaser poster/billboard/webpage that is just a lone basketball sitting on a gym floor, with a glowing halo above it.

    I like the colors that Bigdub used with his Arc Angels design. Navy blue and gold could be done very well, as long as we don't do it the Wizards blue and gold way.
