Default The New Orleans.....Pelicans?

So I'm not the biggest basketball fan, and judging by the activity of this section of the forum not to many others are either, but I found this to be a bit funny. NOLA was looking to change their name ever since they were purchased, and after passing on "Brass" and (Paul?) "Krewe" they have apparently settled on the Pelicans for the start of next season.

Maybe they can take the design of their jerseys and logo from Lahti Pelicans of the SM-liiga.

Krewe would have been better since it is a regionally significant name. Benson's wife apparently has input on the new color scheme. They used to have the Jazz back in the day.

If they add Mighty to the te name it will make it much better...NOT! What a stupid name for a team. Why not the NOLA Crawfish?

It's about on par with penguins. And nobody says how stupid that name is. And there aren't even any penguins in Pennsylvania.

NYC is know for Central Park which has Rangers if you've seen the movie Elf. There are Devils everywhere, so much wilderness in Minnesota that everything's wild. There were saber-toothed cats in Tennessee hundreds of thousands of years ago. And The Maple Leaves doesn't really have the same ring to it.
