With the rumored three names (Pelicans, Krewe and Brass) Benson was deciding between. Which name would you have preferred ?
Terrell Brandon | Vince Carter | Keith Van Horn| Theo Ratliff | Zydrunas Ilgauskas
2003-2004 | 46-36 | 4th in the Pacific Division |5th in the Western Conference
This'll be pelicIN-teresting.
Guess who is putting in time at WBOK 1230 AM Talk Radio... Don't guess, it's me. Tune in this Friday for Sport-a-Talk with Roe Brown and you might just hear me!
Feel free to PM me for details.
You should put another option
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 - Al Jefferson - Carmelo Anthony - Manu Ginobili - Damon Stoudamire
Brad Miller - Samaki Walker - Mickael Pietrus - Aaron McKie - Shaun Livingston
Voodoo is still the best name for this team.
"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.
New Orleans Death Birds
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.
Wow, it's almost like we already did this poll or something. Deja vu?
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.
LOL @ the results right now. Something fishy goin' down. Hehe.
"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.

Don't spam the forums, dude. Put it in your sig, and leave it at that.
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.
