They could have called them the New Orleans Mardi Gras Gropers and it would have been better than Pelicans. What the shit were they thinking....?

Bobcats - God what a stupid fing name. "Look at me, I'm a Bobcat!" And the Baltimore Ravens too - they called them that because Poe was from Baltimore - they should've called them the Baltimore Conquerer Worm.

That's great. So when is the "Jazz" name going back to New Orleans? That wrong hasn't been righted yet and should be.

Pelicans. LOL. That has to be the worst joke of a team name in all of pro sports. In the history of pro sports. How did that even happen??? Why not just name yourself the Fairies? Actually that wouldn't even be as bad. Pelicans is like one of those derogatory names nfl fans make up for their rivals.

Pelicans was on the short list because it's the state bird of Louisiana. Kind of like the Oriole is the state bird of Maryland so Baltimore named their team that. Personally, I wanted them to go with the Krewe which was also on the short list. Owner Tom Benson wanted to bring the name Jazz back but Utah refused to give it up.

Wait a minute, all those Lakes are still there in Los Angeles, they just covered them in concrete to preserve them for future generations. Minnesota had all theirs frozen over anyway when the Lakers moved.

Makes sense for them not to because of their history but the jazz have been pretty irrelevant for a while

Meh, weren't the Jazz only in NO for like 5 years, and they've been in Utah ever since? I doubt that brand or history means a whole lot to Nola b-ball fans (the few there appear to be), so the brand staying in Utah makes sense to me in that regard. It doesn't make sense to me in the sense that we know Mormons don't know shit about jazz.

No that's a beautiful thing that happened, I don't know how I'd handle my childhood if the blazers were a damn dynasty.

Yer one funny fkr, Hans--you're right, it's like naming your team the Chickenhawks, or something.

That had me rolling on the ground.

Still annoyed as heck with the NBA and Stern as a whole. One right doesnt fix a dozen wrongs.

Its a bigger deal than you think. Also the state bird of NOLA is really the mosquito.
