Yes logo's can be connected to the team name but just because they can be linked don't mean they have to be. Somebody used the Lakers logo as an example. Which is simply the team name over a basketball. It could just as easily be the letters LA over the basketball in the same font and it wouldn't change anything.
What I often wonder is why does a team nickname need to be shortened at all? Are people too lazy to speak full words these days?
I was shocked that Tony and Mike on PTI were very reasonable they said they like the name and how it is the state bird. And plus Mike said everytime he said Hornets he thought of Charlotte and not New Orleans.
And if some had to choose between Bounce and Pelicans they're choosing Pelicans.
Some would choose poboys and some would choose lasagna. Life is full of choices.
I hate the name Pelicans, but if you can't get past it then just stop watching them. It's the dumbest thing to get upset about. I would rathered literally any other name, but I will get over it. Trailblazers suns heat lakers magic pacers thunder spurs are all "dumb" names. It's pointless to get upset about something that doesn't effect anything basketball related at all. Who gives a **** if people are laughing I was laughing at Thunder.
I'll take Pelicans over Nets, Magic, Bounce, Wizards, Heat, Thunder, cRaptors, Bobcats, T wolves, Knicks, Lakers everytime.
Bounce is turrible. Not great as a genre of music and even worse as a team name. Just turrible
And honestly i am fine with being the laughing stock.
On the flip side if our football team re-branded to "The Saints" today...people would be saying the same things. THE SAINTS WTF!!!?!? What are they gonna do bless people? Pray that they win? Maybe they'll throw holy water into opponents eyes.

Metaphorically speaking, it's 1:55 a.m., and people's heads are in the same state. Last night, it was, say, 11:30 p.m.

People discussing our name change on espn. Saying it's horrible like i think. EMBARRASSING
Chad Johson just said to name the team to the New Orleans Second Line.
It took one day for me not to hate this name anymore.
