Default Re: Hornets to become Pelicans next season

My initial reaction is.....that is a horrible name. Wow. A pelican is a weird bird....the word itself is long and goofy....and there's no way to shorten it into a better nickname.

Knickerbockers is pretty bad, but at least "Knicks" sounds cool when you say it. Even the Bobcats is better, because you can say "Cats".

If I was to be drafted to a team or traded in the NBA, I would stipulate that I do not want to play for a team with Pelicans...Maybe this is why Eric Gordon sees no future with this team? I knew it! He hated the name Pelicans! bahahaha

Pelicans is bad also because its 3 syllables and can't be shortened to one or two. Almost every other nickname can be shortened to a one or two syllable word that's easy to say. Pelicans does not roll off the tongue.
