I know myself and several others have been involved in the rebrand threads for a while. One thing that a few of us bought up was how a brand (unis, colors, etc.) can help make a nickname. Admittedly, when I first heard Pelicans I was like "LOL WTH NOOOOO." But when I saw some nice concepts for it (BigDub plus maybe a couple others like above), it grew on me after being able to see it nicely done. Wasn't my favorite, but it's cool. I dig it. Unique name. Non-inanimate object or fictional figure.
And if Gayle's color thing is true, yeah it sounds like a weird combo, but if schemed similarly to the above, it will go hard. So personally, I'm hoping for a fire logo, color scheme, and jerseys to really bring the name together.
Winning solves everything
New Orleans Pelicans-Seattle Seahawks-Atlanta Braves-Anaheim Ducks
Baptize them in the water out of Scarface pool,
And feed 'em from the table that held Corleone's food,
If you die, tell them that you played my game
I hope your bullet holes become mouths that say my name.

Know what's an even better way to choose name? It's 1995. What's a popular movie in the last two years? Jurassic Park!
Know what's an even betterer way to choose a name? What's a name of something on a basketball court? Now, can't be the Goals. Or the Baskets. Or the Balls.
How about the Nets!

Not that it matters. If there was a vote and Pelicans won people would still complain and say it was rigged.
So what are some nicknames for the Pelicans?
P Cans? Canes? Pels?
This seems like a good sponsorship idea for Canes.

A focus group or something like that is a far better way to judge reaction than a poll or by leaking names.
For those hoping that's what this is, it seems like a reach given other ways to judge reaction.
think he means NEW ORLEANS city flag.
