New, menacing NBA team name.

Postby PowerGator79 » Thu Jan 24, 2013 11:30 pm

Move over Timberwolves, Thunder, Grizzlies, Raptors, and Bulls. Here come the Pelicans.

At least they're not the Fightin' Pelicans. Owner Tom Benson hopes the new name will unite the city around the team.

Of course the NBA also has a few teams with "softer" mascots like the Magic, Jazz, Clippers, Suns, Spurs, etc.

The other option was "Go out get drunk and take off half your clothes at the Mardi Gras" It didn't fit on the jersey.

If they played all their homes games at Pelican Bay then I might be impressed.

Neither would "the city that always smells like a sewer".

That name is nothing new. There was a famous Double A minor league baseball team for 60 years in New Orleans called the Pelicans. And Louisiana is the Pelican state.

It is a great name for a New Orleans team. And New Orleans is a great city.

No, New Orleans is a great city as long as your visiting and not living there.
Just behind Chicago in murders. But hey the food is GREAT, just sit with your back to a wall and have a CCP and pistol.
If you would like to keep your coach you can
