The New Orleans Hornets are changing their name and logo starting next season. They plan to make the official announcement Thursday. The new name will be the New Orleans Pelicans which is that same name of the state bird. The team log will also change from it’s current Blue and gold pinstripe to blue, gold and red.The Hornets were bought by Tom Benson who also owns the NFL’s New Orleans Saints and plans on keeping the team in New Orleans. Since the Hornets name will be no longer in use. there is an idea being floated about that the Charlotte Bobcats will be interested in reclaiming that nickname (Hornets) and go back to the original nickname that Charlotte started with.

One thought on “Hornets changing name to Pelicans- lacks sting!”
This could possibly be the lamest name for an NBA team ever! Pelicans? Is that the best they could come up with? A pink bird??? C’MON MAN!!
