Re: NWO Pelicans Logo Leaked

It's actually bad looking. Kind of strikes me as more of a Hockey logo for some reason.


When does this go into effect? Next season?

BREAKING NEWS: New Orleans Pelicans

As I write this very post, NBA TV has interrupted their rebroadcast of the Rockets-Nuggets game to give a LIVE coverage of the New Orleans Hornets brand name change from Hornets to New Orleans Pelicans.

A brief video was played to show the significance of the Pelican in the state Louisiana, and how the pelican species has survived environmental turmoil and unrest over the last century.

So, what are your thoughts? Do you appreciate the new brand name, or are you somewhat sentimental and will miss the longtime standing Hornets brand name?

I am sure they will sign over naming rights to the Bobcats.

Pelicans is a fine name, I am not sure why so many people are against it.

Pelicans works, and the logo turned out well.

I think its a good move altogether.

Yes! It goes into effect at the start of the 2013-2014 preseason. Though, I'm not sure if they have legal rights to use the logo during camp before the 2013-2014 preseason.

Charlotte Bobcats say they are engaged in due diligence on the possibility of being the Hornets again, but decline comment until conclusion.

Pelicans is a dumb name but if you really think about it, majority of all sports teams have dumb names. You're just so used to the names and don't know any different that you don't think much of it.

But anyways, I really dig the logo and colors. Excited to see the jerseys.

I'm already used to the name. It's fine and the logo looks good given the name. It's just like when the OKC became the Thunder. Everyone thought it sounded stupid but we're all used to it now.

LOL

In the early 90s, I will never forget a Bulls vs Lakers game in which a fan held a sign that said "What the hell is a Laker?"

After giving it some thought, "Lakers" is probably the only name of a team that is not in the dictionary.

So, exactly what the hell is a Laker? : )

Hmm. I guess it can be argued because Merriam Webster actually describes laker as: one associated with a lake; a fish (as a lake trout)living in or taken from a lake.

However, I doubt that definition of laker is what the Lakers intended their logo to mean. : )
