    Now you know people care what others think. What they don't realize is that those very people didn't like us as Hornets either. Sure, they'll point and laugh today, but in about a year or two, they'll go back to not caring.

    I must say, that logo Atarwii posted looks sharp. Will that be the real logo?

    Of the alternate choices (per @SpearsNBAYahoo ) New Orleans Krewe would have been the best

    Adande knows whats up

    Chauncey Billups | Jerry Stackhouse| Danny Granger| Kenyon Martin | Marcus Camby

    The Krewe and Brass are wayyy more New Orleans than the Pelicans and the team is in New Orleans but supported by the Gulf coast. The Krewe or Brass would have been better but I'm with the team regardless of the name.

    But "PennStatePelican" is 1 character too many for my username

    Only thing I will miss is Hugo. Hopefully we can still do some Mardi Gras unis during Carnival

    Players do not give two ****s about the mascot. I'm sure being a Pacer was a huge factor in DWest joining Indiana bc a Pacer is just sooo intimidating. The only name that's drive away players is something as stupid as ArcAngel. /sarcasm

    Done.

    The name isn't terrible, it can be shortened to Pels and drawn in script on hats and other team paraphernalia, besides, there are dumber names in pro sports, such as Lakers, or Knickerbockers, if those teams weren't n LA and NY, those names would be seen as dumb. The name is equal to Bucks, or Spurs, not terrible, not great, but sensible. Anything can be made cool through proper marketing

    My chain of reactions:

    Are you freaking serious?



    Not impressed....



    And now I'm pouting....

    I hope he changes his mind, and keeps Hornets. If not I will still like the team.

    Someone just suggested this name leak could be a ploy by Benson to gauge the waters. See how fans react. Cuz there's been no official confirmation.

    Well, if you're reading this post Mr. Benson, I'll support Pelicans, but I'd rather be the Krewe of New Orleans or Brass more. Just sweeter names to me.
    Tune in on Fridays at 12 noon for Sport-a-Facts with Ro Brown and Wednesdays at 1pm for Sports Revolution to hear me speak my mind on all things Saints and Pelicans related and more.

    Only on WBOK 1230 AM.

    Feel free to PM me for more details.

    Don't be sorry for having an opinion. Of course people are gonna be upset right when it's announced. You don't get over something right when it happens. Time will change that.

    As long as it comes out Black and Gold, I'm a'ight with it. Way better than Krewe or Bounce or some of the other ones nominated. Definitely Louisiana.

    I'm sure no one was crazy about Thunder either. But being a title contender does wonders for your brand.

    Rather be something else, but we'll see.
