    I know what the mardi gras colors are but basing a color scheme around that seems horrible, i understand if its one jersey but a whole scheme would be tacky as hell

    I think Pelicans would be ok, but not with a Mardi Gras color scheme.

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

    Al Jefferson - James Posey - Aaron McKie - Shaun Livingston

    I agree. Though green and gold looks ok. Check out my Knights mock up in the other thread. I think that could work.

    I'm basing it off the responses in this thread. I never actually said it doesn't have local support. Just that a lot of people in this thread don't like it and that's a great sign.

    I really think that tweet was around the same time as the others or before. I don't think they HAVE any info.

    Might not have info but he posted it after the first tweets. And it's pretty clear that he had planned to post something on the website.

    We'll have a post on @hornets247 later today with some more info on the Hornets rebrand.

    I like Night better than Knights. JMO

    If we use night we might as well contact a tribe called quest and ask for the name midnight marauders. Great album, great name they could even do pregame intros to the song midnight. The name sounds a whole heck of a lot cooler than pelicans, although pelicans is not terrible

    FWIW, I've been asking some people around LSU, and there are a ton that love it. Small sample sizes for both though.

    The 'New Orleans Pelicans' just sounds laughable. I mean, come on. I can't believe we're even taking about this.

    For that matter, the 'Crescents' also could work. As could many others. I did like that Uni watch ESPN design for the Pelicans, but i think it just sounds too childish

    I mean if you really think about it MOST team names are "jokes" "lame" and "stupid".

    Dunno bout you guys but i watch basketball for basketball not because I think the "team name is awesome!"
    I agree in principal that a team name has no barring on whether I support the team or not. However it's not one or the other. I can not like the name and sti support the team. It's better to express dislike now while nothing is final.

    I hope they keep Hornets.

    Really depends on what the owner usually likes. That's how most team names are decided.

    Whatever Benson wants is what the team will get.

    For some reason, I'm thinking New Orleans Crescents seems ok right now.

    If we're looking for a team name that represents the fans, we could name it the New Orleans Complains About Everything...ers.

    Yep. I'm on board with Pelicans...it's local, it's classic, it's classy.

    Exactly.

    When the polling was done earlier in the year a high majority wanted a name change.

    When there was voting on the possible names there were mixed results.

    If a report came out that Krewe, Brass, Angels or any other alternative we have discussed was a possibility there would be just as many people complaining. I hear things like "Knights are better" "Should have stayed with Hornets" "Pelicans sounds childish" the majority wanted a name with REAL local ties to the city/region and this name does that(if it was to be chosen).

    Pelicans would be my second choice, but I stand pretty firm in saying that I feel we should take advantage of this opportunity to go the 'Golden State' route.

    Why must we be the 'New Orleans ___________'. I think 'Crescent City __________' gives us a lot more options with names, while adding a unique flair. Most people that know New Orleans, even in the most distant of ways, would understand the reference, whatever it may be.

    I'll probably champion that until I die, though.

    Rumor: "Pelicans" the current front runner for new name?

    Lol the team isnt any different with a new name. But personally i followed the team purely because it had a cool logo and Baron was goooood. Grew out of that, honestly if the team is named the Pelicans and they start winning i dont think anyone would care about the name then. And if they do care, less bandwagon fans!
