I think it would look better as a single A baseball teams logo...

TBH.....I'm on the fence.

I think the name is stupid, but I do like the colors and at least it's not as cartoonish I thought it would be.

Either way, I still don't understand why they're changing it.....

Should have done New Orleans Voodoo

Edit: Apparently that's such a good idea someone already has it. lol

Idk...the colors are the only thing I don't hate...really looks like a minor league baseball team or little league soccer or something...just doesn't seem like an nba nickname...

lol.

Knicker_Please 12-06-2012 01:49 AM

Haha perfect...that's funny because I was going to recommend savanah or myrtle beach or something...I know savanah is the sand gnats...

Can't wait for Charlotte to get the Hornets name back!! Also not a bad logo and colors.

1eyed_jack 12-06-2012 01:53 AM

I guess the logo is alright, but when you realize it's a pelican and not an eagle or hawk it kind of makes you do a double take

puregreen5 12-06-2012 02:03 AM

All that the Pelican needs now is a unibrow. Dumb name/state bird and Logo. Hate it!! If I ever see a rapper with a Pelican jersey on in the future (on stage or in a music video), I will LMAO!

I think this Pelican, would kick the New Orleans Pelican's arse! Its the mob boss of Pelicans with that bat! Cool Logo! The New Orleans Logo looks like its laying an egg, in the shape of a Basketball. LOL.

Burt-Reynolds 12-06-2012 02:08 AM

not bad actually. i like it, looks good. good color scheme. those nola logos with the horns on the corners of the floors are tits too. they should use those on the jersey. also is that supposed to be a fish at the end of the beak?

Heafy83 12-06-2012 02:30 AM

I tell you what I hate the name but love the new logo and court. Colours are almost reverse Cavaliers though.

CP3toOKC 12-06-2012 02:39 AM

I thought of the Pelican Bay State Prison, good thing I was wrong!

UltimateDeron 12-06-2012 02:56 AM

Looks pretty sweet. I think it will take awhile for everything to get used to the name. The same way it took people awhile to get used to names such as Pacers, Heat, Magic, Clippers, Pistons, etc. Those are household names but if you really think about it, they are odd names for a team.

you have to mention "THUNDER" :D

[QUOTE=benz35;3763615]you have to mention "THUNDER" :D[/QUOTE]

Exactly. Like with the Miami Heat. It sounds so normal, yet if you think about it, it would be like there being a team called the Minnesota Cold. Or similiar to the Oklahoma City Thunder, there being a team called the Portland Rain. If those were the team names, initially we would think they're dumb or silly, but over time people get use to them and they become household names.

Qwasian 12-06-2012 07:57 AM

the design & graphics look great, don't like the name though.

verbal13 12-06-2012 08:01 AM

The name was picked for the history behind it. There was an old New Orleans Pelicans baseball team around the 1910's. graphics look great though.

avjp87 12-06-2012 08:09 AM

it's a horrible name fora major team but I actually like the logo and colors.

dvstringz 12-06-2012 08:39 AM

no, that's how a pelicans beak is shaped

darealstunna 12-06-2012 08:57 AM

I like it...they need to incorporate Tony Montana in a chant or giveaway or something.

Fly Pelican!

chrismiller81 12-06-2012 09:00 AM

sounds like a minor league baseball team name.
