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.

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!"

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.

 3 way trade: send the Jazz back to New Orleans, the Hornets back to Charlotte, and give Utah the Bobcats name (or let them call themselves whatever the heck they want)

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