Team names

Just a thought, considering that New Orleans is planning a name change for next year....

Since Tom Benson owns both the pro football and basketball teams in N.O. , couldn't he simply off the Saints name (as in Latter Day Saints) to Utah in exchange for the Jazz name?

Otherwise, it's the New Orleans Pelicans...

Here's another thought and Sean Elliot and Bill Land touched on it very lightly in last night's game against Charlotte, if New Orleans drops the Hornets mascot name, can or will Michael Jordan and Charlotte pursue reacquiring it for the Charlotte franchise, since the name originated in Charlotte.

Seems like the Pelicans is going to stick. They should just bring back the ABA so their team and lame name can go play with the other teams with lame names, Spurs excluded of course

That might be one of the worst if not the worst names in sports now! I know the Raptors and THE MIGHTY DUCKS IS GOD AWFUL but Pelicans! WOW. Living near DC I thought Wizards was bad lol, man thats not nearly as bad.

Bad name but makes more sense than Hornets.
