Some originals:
Philadelphia Warriors
New Orleans Jazz
Vancouver Grizzlies
Indianapolis Pistons
Minnesota Lakers
Baltimore Bullets

Some NBA names are lame:
Knickerbocker?
76er?
Laker in Los Angeles? or a Laker anywhere else for that matter?
Jazz in Salt Lake City?
Grizzly in Memphis?
Cavalier in Cleveland?

So wanting to be a Pelican in New Orleans doesn't surprise me all that much even though I don't care for it. The name of their minor league baseball team was the Pelicans which was near and dear to the oldtimers.
