Hornets changing name to Pelicans. New Pelicans logo revealed
 
New Orleans Hornets Owner Tom Benson announced today that at the conclusion of the 2012-13 season, the name of the team will become the New Orleans Pelicans. A name that will represent the culture and resolve of the Gulf Coast region while also symbolizing Louisiana’s most pressing initiative of coastal restoration and wildlife conservation. Benson introduced the team’s new logos, as well as color scheme, during the announcement.

But now it's been confirmed. Thursday they will announce themselves as the Pelicans further distancing themselves from potential free agents.

Interested to see the color scheme, i just can't believe they went with "Pelicans" :facepalm

There was similar resistance when the Seatte SuperSonics changed their nickname to Thunder when the franchise moved to Oklahoma City in 2008, but now the nickname is widely accepted.
Um, no, the nickname is not widely accepted. It sucks. Their logo sucks, their name sucks, and their color scheme sucks.

Bombers, Marshals, Tornados, Outlaws; anything is better than the "Thunder."

I don't think it looks bad, but I don't get the name or why they chose that color scheme.
