You name the team for the local market.
those names are lame-ish, but it's catering to the base and to the league as a whole. is New Orleans known primarily for Pelicans or for other things like Mardi Gras, etc. (not saying name them that either).
we'll see how it plays out. no idea how many free agents will be thrilled to be a part of the Pelicans squad now more than they did before the news came out. won't matter for the base if no one wants to come play there.
