Pelicans . . . sounds like an NHL team.

Which is to say, it's a really stupid name.

its their state bird, so makes more sense than hornets. i woulda liked "brass" best though. i like when teams are named after something in their area. and if you really think about a lot of current team nicknames, they are far more absurd, we're just used to them.

I would be great for Charlotte to have the Hornets back.

On the other hand, Pelicans? Really!?

New Orleans Cajuns should be their monicker.

Horrible name

Yeah, I'm not a fan, either.  It's probably no worse than a lot of the names out there, though.  "Lakers"?

Right, what's a Pacer?  "We don't give full effort, we pace ourselves!"
Philly:

Anderson Varejao    Tiago Splitter    Matt Bonner
David West    Kenyon Martin    Brad Miller
Andre Iguodala    Josh Childress    Marquis Daniels
Dwyane Wade    Leandro Barbosa
Kirk Hinrich    Toney Douglas   + the legendary Kevin McHale

The locals seem to like it. Why not? I just want to see the Charlotte Hornets again.

I think Utah says no, they need at least a future first round pick back in that deal
