New Orleans nickname scramble 
Posted on December 4, 2012 at 10:08 PM.
I'm reading where the Hornets want to change their name and colors. New owner Tom Bensman is leaning towards the State bird, the Brown Pelican. He says he'd like to reclaim the Jazz Nickname from Utah.And on top of that, Charlotte is hoping to reclaim the "Hornets" Nickname as well.
I never did understand the Jazz being in Utah. I doubt there's ten people in Utah that listen to, or have ever heard Jazz in their lifetime,
A much better name for Utah would be the old "Stars" name from the old ABA. But even that was borrowed since the Stars originated in Los Angeles. But I gotta say, the UTAH Stars had one of the coolest looking uniforms in the ABA.
So the real question here isn't what the New Orleans Franchise should go to, it's what the UTAH team should do.
If the Utah team gave up it's Jazz Nickname, then what should it be? How about the "Saints"? As in Church of Latter Day "SAINTS".Or how about "Blizzards"?
Then again, instead of calling themselves the "Pelicans", why can't New Orleans be known as the "Gumbos"? Or the "Cajuns"?
I just think Pelicans carries about as much excitement as the "Mighty Ducks".
Those mighty fighting Pelicans just misses the mark in my book.
So now as if Conference Realignment wasn't enough.. We're now going to have Nickname Musical Chairs.
BTW, I always thought the name "Shots" would make a good basketball nickname for somebody.
