    I crack up every time I think of the towering Anthony Davis wearing a Pelican logo. LOL! I feel like we are trapped in a Disney film.
    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!

    Forever hating the nickname, the logos, and the colors. Still backing the team I've loved since 1994.

    Stolen name. Stolen colors. Stolen identity. Still the same old worthless Slobcats. Suck sludge, Charlotte.

    No way Magic is Disney, right? Not with Shaq and Dwight, right?

    Disney bought Star Wars. It wouldn't surprise me to see them buy the entire NBA someday.

    Still don't like the name. Knights, Voodoo or Krewe would have all been by far better. But maybe it will grow on me, maybe I'll always love the team but hate the name, kind of like that naggin thing our spouses do that we overlook because it isn't worth throwing away the good you have between each other.

    Pistol Pete the Pelican!!!

    I think Jason had that idea a while back, but I'm in.

    I'm guessing NBA has to approve the name and colors, but I like the leak.

    That said, if the backlash is ugly, maybe TBone Tommy changes his mind and goes with DUKES!!!

    It's quiet up in here. It's like a luxury box.

    Prop up the feet. Take in the game, check out the dancers.

    Life is good, PH.

    Only on WBOK 1230 AM.

    Feel free to PM me for more details.

    On April 14th, we were corresponding about names.

    The ones discussed in that email: Krewe, Voodoo, Brass, Pelicans, with long shots of Saints, Night(s), and Breakers.

    I wanted kreweyou.com as a blog for the team. There were others.

    Yea we discussed this before. We saw that he did this a loooooong time ago. He wasn't missing out on his investment.

    Any word on where we'll be able to procure a NBA authentic New Orleans Pelicans jersey prior to Christmas? I'm going to hang up and listen...

    Considering Benson has not formally asked the league for the rebrand to take place, no where.

    Yea, he filed the paperwork with the league for the rebrand, and they said thay would fast track the process (which normally takes two years) so it can happen this off season, but Benson has not formally proposed a name and color pattern yet.
