    It's official:

    http://sports.yahoo.com/news/nba--ne...181328311.html

    New Orleans Hornets to announce change to Pelicans at Thursday news conference

    The New Orleans Hornets plan to announce the official change of their nickname to the Pelicans and unveil their new colors and logo during a news conference Thursday, sources told Yahoo! Sports.

    The new nickname, colors and logo will be used during the 2013-14 season. The colors will be blue, gold and red. Yahoo! Sports first reported the expected change Dec. 4. The Hornets had been expected to change their identity since being purchased by Tom Benson on April 14.

    Benson owns the rights to the nickname Pelicans. It has not been determined when Pelicans merchandise will be available.

    The Pelican is the state bird of Louisiana, which is known as the Pelican State. The Pelican is also on license plates, the state flag, the state seal and the state painting. The bird symbolizes Louisiana's environmental recovery from oil spills. There was also a minor-league baseball team in New Orleans called the Pelicans from 1887-1959 and 1977 of which Benson was fond.

    The name "Pelicans" has received a lot of criticism from Hornets fans and NBA followers. During the news conference, a video is expected to be shown explaining the history behind the nickname and what it means to New Orleans and the state. 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.

    The Charlotte Hornets moved to New Orleans in 2002. Some fans are hoping the Charlotte Bobcats change their name back to the Hornets, considering the change in New Orleans. A source said the Bobcats will do their due diligence in considering a switch back to the Hornets, but nothing is imminent.

    Ah, THERE IT IS. I was waiting for someone to post this garbage.

    So tell me, what is intimidating about the following names;

    Brooklyn Nets
    Denver Nuggets
    Indiana Pacers
    Los Angeles Lakers
    New York Knicks
    Philadelphia 76ers
    Portland Trail Blazers
    Utah Jazz

    I'll wait.

    Brooklyn Nets For someone terrible at basketball like I am, going to the net is an anxiety-ridden undertaking.
    Denver Nuggets Ever have to deal with a gold allergy? Didn't think so.
    Indiana Pacers Pace cars remind me of Dale Earnhardt. That car crash was pretty frightening. RIP, #3
    Los Angeles Lakers Jason Voorhees.
    New York Knicks Pants are quite intimidating following a holiday or anti-diet weekend. Nothing scares me like realizing I have to zip-up AND button after beer and pizza all day.
    Philadelphia 76ers So you're not taken aback when it comes to the men that forged our country by standing up to tyrants? Way to be, redcoat. How's that victory working out for you?
    Portland Trail Blazers Considering that "trail blazing" is synonym for "crop dusting" where I'm from, you'd be wise to avoid those air deuces.
    Utah Jazz The men who can improvise and wail on sax, trumpet, piano, and all other jazz instruments better intimidate you if you have any sense of musicianship.

    I'll wait.
    There you go.

    This is what I don't get. So every got damn thing in your state is already representing your 'state bird' yet, you think it'd be great idea to also name your only basketball team in the state that as well.

    Like fuck it, pelican here, pelican there - pelicans everywhere like in real life. I see what you did there, but it's still not worthy of being called out as NBA champions. You'll never hear the words 'pelicans' and 'championship' in the same sentence in the NBA, ever. Shit just sounds like a Sunday night, ladies only mini-golf team.

    Pelicans.

























    The pelicans.

    Pelicans is such a pussy ass name. There's probably already a Voodoo but that would have been obvious and perfect.
