    I think Let's Dance is incredibly lame. But hey, ya'll do ya'll.

    It's Zion's saying, so no, it is not.

    I just think it’s a little odd because in movies it is often used in the context of two enemies about ready to fight. However, with the streets full of people partying and chanting Zion after he got drafted... the let’s dance phrase makes perfect sense. It’s almost like he’s saying .. let’s go get it and have some fun together.

    I’d prefer, “Do the Dew” and just change our team to New Orleans Mountain Dew

    For New Orleans, it’s perfect. One of two places where I’ve seen people dance for no reason on a midday Saturday in the street.

    Other was Barcelona

    I like the catch phrase.

    I absolutely loathe that someone can trademark two words. **** the man.

    Trademarking "Let's Dance" is as stupid as trademarking your uni-brow.

    It's not lame at all.

    Best Pelz slogan in years. The thing I like most about it is that Zion thought of it when he was put on the spot about sending a message to Pelz fans at Draft Fest. I like slogans that arise organically.

    I thoroughly enjoy engaging those who make condescending remarks such as these.

    Care to expound upon why you view the phrase as “lame”?

    This is basketball, not West Side Story or La La Land.

    And expressing an opinion you disagree with isn't condescending. Saying people who don't share my opinion are lame and they should get over it, would be condescending.

    Would you prefer Go Go Gadget Zion?

    It's a phrase Zion said. Wasn't meant to be a rallying cry...which is why it's perfect.

    It would be perfect if was just left at " a phrase Zion said". Turning it into a rallying cry that folks rushed out to trademark so it could be marketed and profited off of is the opposite of perfect, in my opinion.

    In a vacuum I would agree with you, but people latched onto it and were repeating it regularly. Someone was going to use it for profit and marketing, so it might as well be Zion that gets paid.

    David Bowie (rest his soul) would approve...

    That's my view as well. I think it's a solid, fitting catch phrase that came out of a nice, natural moment. But the idea that a two word phrase, especially one that existed prior to you even being born, can become your ''intellectual property'' is beyond a joke.

    I agree with that too. No real reason for the team to trademark it. It's something Zion said, him saying it is on camera, the catch-phrase is associated with him and if he ever left us (god forbid) then it would be weird and strange for us to keep using it when everyone knows that it came from him. Just let the man have his trademark, he'll obviously let the team use it, and let him profit off his moment*.


    *In the circumstances where anyone profits, which nobody should, because being able totrademark a two word pre-existing phrase is stupid.

    When someone says "Let's Dance" I immediately think of fight scenes. Some sort of 80s/90s martial arts scene. Definitely something comic book Wolverine would have said with a "bub" at the end. I'm sure it's been used in that manner many times. That's why it is so ridiculous it can be trademarked in this 1984 growing society but also why you know NM is just throwing stuff out there to troll.

    I don’t get the movie references as most high profile industries (like Nike and Just Do it) have slogans and/or tag lines. The Saints have Who Dat. This isn’t new.

    Also, if you don’t understand the condescending tone of “y’all do you” when referring to the thing you want others to “do” as “lame”, then you might want to review the definition.

    Same.

    Also, from the sounds of it, Zion's filed 14 trademark applications for Let's Dance.

    I'm not very knowledgeable at all on U.S. trademarking law: is there any reason to file so many applications for one thing?
