    Any name can have a good color scheme and logo. Doesn't mean I like the name. You could name a team 'The Turds' and come up with an awesome color scheme and logo.

    Man nobody wants that weak *** name. It's not even intimidating. Make it NOLA Knights and make the colors purple and black or black and gold

    Brah, I'd rather have NEONIGHTS! Positive is at least the Hornets name will be purged forever!

    Wizards are a different story, though. Then if he brings his buddy the Patriot.... oh boy you're done.

    I'd rather keep Hornets than have pelicans. Whats a pelican going to do, use it's beak??? Hornets sting and if we do change it what will happen to the hornets franchise. I mean it has history behind it so someone should use that name in the NBA

    If you really wanted an intimidating name, more people would've been on my one man Reapers bandwagon. Or maybe it was me and someone else that came up with the name. I dunno.

    Oh and don't forget the Arc(h)angels).

    Let's not forget the Knickerbocker's amazing power for no one to know what the hell it is.

    The pelican in those pics looks like something in a baby's nursery.

    Pelicans is pretty horrible. I still like New Orleans Drillers.

    Drill baby drill.

    A poll should be added to this to see how many people like Pelicans. I'm curious.

    I joke, but I'm not crazy about it. All the same, the name won't matter in a year anyway. I know I mocked Thunder...doesn't matter now.

    I was just about to post that!!
    Those are my favorite rebrand concepts so far. I feel this way; some names in the NBA are terrible and not intimadating at all. Example: Lakers. I know they were originally Minnesota and had geographical relations to the state when they were there, but still, a pretty sissy name no matter what it means geographically to the state. This name is obviously owned by one of the elite power-houses in this league and no one hardly ever thinks anything of it. A name, no matter what (Unless of course it's something utterly and blatantly stupid, which this name is not) will eventually grow on everyone. And this meets the criteria of relating to the city and state that most of you have asked for.

    Could short hand it as the Pelcs. Similar to the first syllable of Celtics.

    Pelicans would grow on me if we had an awesome logo in black and gold...

    Isn't Big Bird a pelican?
