    The Hornets moved to New Orleans from Charlotte in 2002, and when Benson bought the team earlier this year, he said he would like to change the name to something more fitting of Louisiana. His wife, Gayle, reiterated that idea and added that the franchise also would like to change the team colors from teal and purple to red, gold and navy blue.
    Terrible name for one of my favorite expansion teams of the 90s (Larry Johson/Mugsy Bogues!)

    At least do some sort of fearsome animal, Pelicans?

    What really should happen is the Utah Jazz should change their name to something else and New Orleans should become the Jazz again.

    I saw it on ESPN and I still thought it was satire. Absolutely atrocious even if it is the Louisiana state bird.

    That is officially the worst name in any major US sport. It's hard to think of a college with a worse name/mascot off the top of my head.

    I checked out state birds out of curiosity and would have never guessed Nene is named after Hawaii's state bird.

    I'm still baffled at Utah having the California Gull as their state bird.

    I dig it. Pelican is a cool word. I'm picturing an old school, cartoon-ish Oriole logo. (which was also great)

    That's a great idea that will never happen.

    wonder if McHale told the temp coach to Hack-a-Howard beforehand. Strategy worked tonight. Pretty funny seeing all those clanked FTs from D12 or D-Ho or whatever they call him. Hack a ho.

    While it was disappointing to get home from Animal Collective last night to see that the Nets are still having a tough time with the league's best teams, it helped that both the Heat and Lakers blew it in their games. I know the Heat loss ultimately means very little and they are still the team to beat in the East, it's still temporarily satisfying.

    The Nets looked terrific last night considering Lopez and Evans where both missing, top scorer and rebounder respectively. I'd be stoked on the Nets play this season and looking forward.

    Who is the Clippers fan that preferred Ryan Hollins over Reggie Evans? Is it becoming apparent why we cautioned you and said you might be underrating Evans?

    The Knicks are fun to watch, they're like that group of old guys at the park that run the court for five straight games and then leave.


    I'm interested in seeing how Amare will fit into all of this.

    If David Byrne circa Stop Making Sense and Steve Harvey circa any time at all co-designed a men's clothing line, the crown jewel in their collection would be the enormous suit Mike Woodson wore last night.

    I'm concerned about Stoudemire's return, though I don't think Woodson will feel as beholden to him as D'Antoni was. He could be a nice compliment off the bench.

    I've had a change of heart about the New Orleans Pelicans thanks to this awesome article on Dead Spin. Pretty goddamn funny.

    FUCK YOU, PELICANS ARE AWESOME.

    Here's my favorite excerpt:

    The pelican will eat as much as four pounds of fish per day, nearly half its body weight. Its bloodlust is insatiable. It wants to kill you and everyone you've ever cared about. Don't believe me? Here's a pelican eating baby ducklings. And because that's not cruel enough, it makes their mother watch.

    Hollinger's 2012-13 NBA Playoff Odds

    Odds ESPN's piece uses "Hollinger" three times in its opening sentence? 100%

    Hollinger's NBA Playoff Odds are based on the Hollinger Power Rankings, designed by ESPN.com's John Hollinger.

    The Hollinger Power Rankings are a measure of each team's performance in the season so far.

    Based on those rankings, each day the computer plays out the remainder of the season 5,000 times to see the potential range of projected outcomes. The results reveal the most likely win-loss record for each team -- and what the odds are for each team to make the NBA playoffs, win the NBA title, win the lottery, and so on

    Hollinger's NBA Playoff Odds are updated automatically each night.

    I would be too, if I was a Lakers fan. Honestly, it's to the point where I'm feeling incrediblely bad for their fans. It's a very weird year for the NBA. At least my team is doing well...
