The Hornets have already tried to incorporate the mardi gras colors. And they even have a mardi gras uniform(widely thought of as one of the worst in the league though I don't think they are bad). What's the point of rebranding if we're not changing things. I think we need to get as far away from our old name and colors as possible. I'm not completely throwing Mardi Gras colors out, hell, LSU uses Mardi Gras colors. But between the Lakers already, and what the Hornets have already done, I think they need to go in a different direction.
