    Curtis Lofton said the name needed to sound tough. He then suggested Nutria Rats.

    Hard to separate the joke suggestions from people that are just legitimately stupid.

    ESPN would likely love the Pelicans nickname if it were preceded by the word Seattle.

    Steve Kyler: There is no doubt that Ownership wants the team to be named the Pelicans... NBA has yet to approve it. Needs Board of Governors buy in. Twitter @stevekylerNBA

    This is all a PR stunt.
    They are putting names out there to get fans reactions.

    Here, he says no doubt this is what ownership wants and gives some reasons for why it might not happen (general). He does say the NBA may not let Charlotte rebrand to Hornets.

    I'm sold on the name now. Right before the Kobe top 10 they accidently said..."New Orleans Pelicans"...NOT Charlotte or the Bobcats.

    "I want ONLY 9 eyebrows in the starting lineup for the Hornets next year." I typed this before the draft lottery

    That obvious huh, my knowledge of new Orleans wildlife comes from watching swamp people.

    That said I'm jumping on the pelicans bandwagon 100%. Just realised that Sydney has two bird teams, the roosters and the swans, nothin wrong with a bird for a team name.

    I'll miss the hornets logo an everything, but for me moving to new Orleans made me like the team more than before.

    And you could shorten pelicans to Pelis, it's what us Aussies would do.

    Last comment, I like the pelicans logo and all, but it reminds me a lot of the old warriors logo.

    "So basically, non-Pelican fans are haters just for the sheer fact of being haters."

    ESPN, you know what you are doing.

    Weak article from a Charlotte perspective. "change for change sake". The Bobcats are last in the league in merchandise sales, and the community is going nuts to get the name back, Adam Silver was here last season to speak with MJ about the Hornets name and said they would "clearly" look at bringing it back to Charlotte.

    It's all about revenue... What will sell more merchandise? Charlotte Bobcats or Charlotte Hornets? No brainer!

    Benson owns the rights to the name Pelicans, once a New Orleans minor league baseball team, but Stern says the Hornets have filed to protect five unspecified names.
