    Question PELICANS, KREWE or BRASS

    With the rumored three names (Pelicans, Krewe and Brass) Benson was deciding between. Which name would you have preferred ?

    Out of those three, Krewe.

    Krewe is cool with only New Orleans. Brass sounds like we wanted Jazz back, but couldn't get is so we went 2nd rate. Pelicans is unique and encompasses Louisiana. The first time I heard it I didn't like it, but I like it now. I think I like it more now that so many people hate it.

    Neither of these 3.

    Emeka Okafor - Joe Smith - Carmelo Anthony - Manu Ginobili - Jason Williams

    Al Jefferson - James Posey - Aaron McKie - Shaun Livingston

    As in a different name or none as in you prefer we stay Hornets? If the latter, yeah your opinion is worth less than a large sum of money.

    "Krewe of New Orleans" would be the best... but Pelicans is still good for me.

    I think you guys know where I stand, but anything is better than being called the Charlotte Hornets.

    Brass, Krewe, Angels, Cardinals, Cardinal, Pilots, Arc Angels. I could stomach all of those. But nooooooooo. They pick the one name that makes me sad.

    ^ I'm with you, I think everyone will hardly care once it actually happens. Honestly, I think I've heard us called the charlotte hornets at least ten times by other teams announcers just in the last two weeks.

    Okay what Pelican boot licker created multiple IDs? From 5 to 14 in less than an hour, after sitting stagnant and in 3rd place eh?

    I voted Pelicans. Brass and Krewe are too close to WNBA/AFL team names. I would rather Angels/Cardinals/Bucs etc but an NBA team has to be generic and it is very much that.

    All,

    "The Pelicans" is seriously bad. You can tell no test groups were done about this. NBA teams need to be marketed to young guys, and no young guy wants to sport a Pelicans hat.

    Link to a poll done on this a while back - Brass was the clear winner

    If you can't convincingly win this poll as the pelicans that just seems like an issue because you won't find more people who like that name than in here and it's still not the favorite. They need to do it the same way every other name change haplens in the NBA... give us 4 choices and let the fans decide

    There was a poll done on this.

    A poll of one.

    I know who was in it: Tom Benson.

    Is that what EVERY NBA team does when there's a name change? EVERY one has done this?
