I'm coming to the realization that the NBA fan populace as a whole hates change. We hate new names, new uniforms, especially if it isn't our team. I GUARANTEE you that a forum of non-Hornets fans will hate whatever name and logo we pick. That's just what NBA fans are now; we're haters, the lot of us. With that in mind, I want the ugliest colors/most ridiculous name possible, because haters gon hate.

Heard some chatter that I trust that Pelicans has been decided on.

Well, after hearing more, now I'm less positive...sorry for misleading info. I misunderstood original info. Now all i know is it's "old school." Definitely could be Pelicans, but could also mean plenty of others...bucs, brass, breakers, etc. April is supposed to be when we find out. We've got a long wait..
Brass would make me happy.
Pelicans would make me scratch my head.
Bucs would make me vomit.
April - May makes the most sense if it's not Voodoo.
hopefully hornets win the championship and they are forced to keep the name the same
I would so I overule you two.

my only problem with the Breakers is it sounds too close to the Lakers
It's like choosing between a punch in the mouth and a kick in the balls.
And the punch in the mouth is the state symbol.
Tune in on Fridays at 12 noon for Sport-a-Facts with Ro Brown and Wednesdays at 1pm for Sports Revolution to hear me speak my mind on all things Saints and Pelicans related and more.
Only on WBOK 1230 AM.
Feel free to PM me for more details.
You are My Sunshine is the state song.
There's a brand. Same justification.
Or is that justification silly?
New Orleans Sunshine!!!
In all seriousness, i think some one needs to do a thorough investigation into this cover up.
The only "Old School" name that deserves the team we're putting together is the Buccaneers, but with a change to the mascot. Go for the skull and bones look.
Wow, thanks for the find. I haven't even gotten to the rebrand information yet, but this forum is fascinating.
