    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.
    Krewe!!!

    Hope so not to speculate to much but perhaps the league leaked the name to give the Bensons perspective on how it would be received but they seem dead set on it.

    get over it. Stop feeling how you feel. You have to pretend to like it because we root for this team.

    The twitter world just exploded with hatred for the name. I know people in New Orleans like the name but the NBA is too national let alone global to go with a name like that. You gotta sell merchandise, you have to sell ticket at away games when the Pelicans come to town. You can say other NBA names are weird but this one is on another level. Also name changes usually go to a vote... interesting how that doesn't look like the case here

    Do you remember the laughing stock that OKC became when they changed to the Thunder? In a year, people will be accustomed to the name and that is that. Love it or hate it, in a year we will have a name that identifies more with New Orleans.

    I really suck at sarcasm over the internet. I was poking fun at the people telling us to get over it already.

    I will say that the Pelican logo I saw earlier in the thread actually looks awesome.

    The article doesn't even specify an unnamed source. This is still just conjecture. This doesn't have anything more than 42's piece on the rebrand, and honestly it looks an awful lot like just a rehash.

    Lordy, I don't like that name. Hopefully this is a mistake.

    why do we have to have a name that starts off with nation wide hate and eventually people catch on to, rather than start off with a baddass name that everyone celebrates...CP3X30 is right, no one outside of Louisiana/some of the gulf coast will buy pelican branded merchandise

    This thread is embarrassing.

    This board -- and the wider world -- would have reacted just the same if the name was leaked as being Voodoo, Brass, Krewe, Angels, or Spirit.

    Ya'll are overreacting.

    I believe this to be true. We knew there were going to be some unhappy people no matter which name was chosen.
