Heck if they wanted to go with an animal name, wouldn't Gators sound better than Pelicans?

Was looking at some of the possible designs and color schemes for their new Pelicans squad, and some of them aren't that bad. Can't wait to see what those Pelican fitteds or snapbacks look like.

Tom Benson bought the New Orleans Hornets, one of the things he said was that he'd heard fans complain about the team name and wouldn't be opposed to a change

Looks like the fans are getting their wish.

The team reportedly is changing its name to the Pelicans, in honor of the Louisiana state bird, according to Yahoo Sports. The brown pelican also is featured on the state flag and seal.

Other names considered were Krewe (for the groups of revelers that take part in Mardi Gras festivities) and Brass.

The Hornets did not confirm the name change was final. “This is an ongoing process and still being discussed," a team spokeman said. "The eventual decision will be made by the NBA.”

Benson bought the team from the NBA in April for $338 million. The league had taken control of the franchise in 2010, buying it from previous owner George Shinn for $300 million.

The Pelicans were also a minor league baseball team in New Orleans for several decades. Benson already owns the rights to the name.

In an odd twist, the name change would open the door for Michael Jordan to return the Hornets name to Charlotte, a move he's said he would consider if the name were to become available.

Pelicans sound better than the Krewe.

If they were named that, they'd have to play this at every game! (Flashback tot he 80's!)

The Pelicans have not been cleared for takeoff.

The New Orleans Hornets have denied a report that the team will change its name - perhaps by the start of next season - from Hornets to Pelicans.
“We’re not confirming that is the name,” Hornets spokesman Greg Bensel told the New Orleans Times Picayune when asked about a Yahoo! Sports story reporting that a name change was imminent.
