    Agree on 'Bounce'- sounds too much like a WNBA concoction.

    I'm trying to imagine Anthony Davis on Draft Day in a couple of weeks:

    "I'd like to thank the Bounce organisation for selecting me at No. 1.. "

    Not a fan of Zombies. I like Sinners glad it was mentioned. After all saints save sinners and we we're saved by the owner of the Saints.

    I know this is unpopular here but: PELICANS! Love the history and that Angry Pelican logo.

    Bounce is one of the worst possible choices, but Voodoo is the best!

    Voodoo, Krewe, Pelicans or knights........in that order

    I also think it depends on BigDubs work on all of those, Id like to see to determine the best

    The main reason I don't like Pelicans is that the name is too long. 3 syllable names always get shortened to 1 or 2 (except Warriors).

    Trailblazers -> Blazers
    Timberwolves -> T-Wolves/Wolves
    Cavaliers -> Cavs
    Mavericks -> Mavs
    Knickerbockers -> Knicks
    76ers -> 6ers/Sixers


    Pelicans would undoubtedly get shortened. I would dread hearing the name P-Cans every night.

    That makes me think of something completely different than state birds. That makes me think of French Quarters during Mardi Gras.

    I completely agree. No need IMO to name the team something they won't be called the majority of the time anyways.

    Agree completely- name has to be one or two syllables.

    The 'Knights' bandwagon has the additional advantage of alliteration, as far as these things go anyway.

    People would probably just use NOLA instead. Two syllables and is pretty unique.

    I so want to love the name Knights(I'm a Purple Knight after all). It's just so generic to me. This goes on the list with Voodoo, Krewe, and now Bishop if it ends up as the team name I can live with comfortably, but don't necessarily love.

    Knights is so mundane..not to say that, really, cavaliers and knights? All for voodoo at this point

    I hear ya- it's tough coming up with a name that feels authentic and original, without sounding completely wacky as well ('the Bounce'??!).

    I like 'the Blues' as well, primarily because it lends itself to a colour scheme, and also holds cultural significance for New Orleans.

    Memphis should've named their team the Memphis Blues. Synonymous with their area kind of like the Jazz is to New Orleans.

    Yeah I want something original and that's the main reason I don't like Voodoo and Brass. However I'll add Brass to the names I'm cool with.

    You're right, that would have made sense. Mind you, when you have Marc Gasol and Randolph down low and Tony Allen on the perimeter, a Grizzly Bear motif is not altogether inappropriate!

    That trio would indeed give opponents the blues though.

    Yeah, this is about to go to the rebrand thread. If you hate the rebrand talk though it's alright to just skip over the thread.

    If a thread or subject bothers you why even bother with it?
