Utah needs to come up with their own name..maybe be the Utah Stars. Give New Orleans their name back. New Orleans Jazz. Lakers need to change their name because it makes no sense in Los Angeles. Lakers is a Minneapolis thing. Charlotte can become the Hornets once again.

Go figure.

Yes, But Los Angeles Lakers looks good on script, and it rolls right of the tongue.......just sounds good.........New Orleans Pelicans are a far too long and twisted name......

The Pelican is an aggressive predatory animal.

Nets have no need to give up the name, the team originated from New York before moving to New Jersey in late 1970s. They just returned to where they belong.

The Hornets are a different story in a way that the name Hornets has special meaning for Charlotte but not for New Orleans. They need a new identity that represents the city.

Good job.
Not sure if sarcasm or.. would you really like to hear someone say "yeah they're playing Memphis Chickens tonight, they'd better be hangover and sleepy cause if they're ready it's gonna be a blowout, we are talking about the Chickens afterall".

It will be weird to have a different franchise with old franchise's name. They can't claim Zo,LJ & Mugsy era as their own, right?

It's also weird to see some people in Charlotte doesn't support Bobcats because they are not Hornets.
