So are they officially the "Pelicans?" Or do they become the Pelicans once the season is over? I hope the new jerseys are gold. That would be pretty cool. Red and Blue are used too much.

Like the logo and colors, but like others have said, the name still needs to grow on me.

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.

So they are basically using the color scheme that the Cavs had before LeBron left? I like.
