    Can't use that. Language changes with time. You don't hear people in New York calling everything funny or good "a riot" nowadays do you? i never thought Heat was bad, just a bit awkward to hear a name without an "s" at the end back then.

    Peilicans though? It's Disney World. Now and forever.

    I don't think that's because of the name though.

    Edit: Nevermind. I just saw your jokin post to Kibner.

    Eman where'd you get those designs?

    Can't please everybody. I'm digging the pelicans though. At first I hated it but as time went by it grew on me. Lets see those colors and unis.

    I kind of like it, but I've grown up with Hornets, so it's going to take some time to adjust. Pelicans sounds pretty good and makes a lot of sense locally. I just hope it catches on.

    This is on some WNBA sh*t.

    Nope. But it's something some guy made on Photoshop or whatever. And it looks that good. Imagine if BigDub is working on a uni concept? He'll be sure to knock one out the stratosphere. I'd forgotten about how sweet that color scheme is.

    lol @ people gettin' all worked up. This league is chock-full of terrible names. I mean, really, most of them are terrible at face value. But teams create "the brand" through winning and time.

    You can't spell "Pelican" without I CAN, biznatches!

    Language changes with time but not this language!

    No matter how you dress up the justification....the name is still wack. Its true almost all NBA names are wack....but this one is the wackest. I mean what can you shorten it to.. the Pels...that wack too. Just shortened wackness. LOL.

    This is by far the worst sports name right now. I challenge anyone to verbally say "New Orleans Pelicans".... u cant tell me that doesnt sound goofy and bad.
