New Orleans........... Pelicans?

Reports are saying that the New Orleans Hornets plan on changing the nickname of the team as early as the 2013/14 season. After considering "Krewe" (the name of the costumer paraders during Mardi Gras) or "Brass" as new team names, the group has decided on "Pelicans".

Despite sounding absolutely ridiculous, the name does make sense for the team. New Orleans being in Louisiana, and Louisiana being "the Pelican State". The flag of the State features a pelican while the State bird is the brown pelican.

And for those who may think this isn't real...
