New Orleans Pelicans

The New Orleans Hornets NBA Basketball Team officially changed its name to the New Orleans Pelicans.  Hopefully, they will have better success under the new name.
Previously, the New Orleans Pelicans was the name for a minor league baseball team that became defunct some time in the past.  I'm glad the New Orleans basketball team got a nickname to suit the place -- Hornets was so Charlotte!
Actually, there's been a sort of taboo against team name changes in the NBA.  Otherwise, why would we have the Los Angeles Lakers, the Memphis Grizzlies, the Utah Jazz, and the Orlando Magic?

That's a classy-looking emblem.

Pelicans..... I'll have to think about that.

I 100% approve of New Orleans' new name and especially love the logo.

"Magic" makes sense for Orlando too because of Disney and all.

I've always thought teams should be required to change their mascot when they move.

A great new team name.

I actually saw the old New Orleans Pelicans play AA baseball.
