The New Orleans Pelicans unveil new logo

The New Orleans Pelicans unveil the team’s new logo | Ball Don’t Lie – Yahoo! Sports.

Well New Orleans is now going to be known as the Pelicans. It’s an interesting switch to say the least. I wasn’t real whenever I first heard of the change if I liked this or not. My first thought was that the “Pelicans” just doesn’t sound tough enough. I also had no idea why the “Pelicans”, it seemed pretty random to me.

After doing a little reading today I discovered that “Pelicans” in this article that New Orleans and Louisiana consider Pelicans a symbol of the city and the state. That made me like the name a little better,  but it still doesn’t sound tough. Well, take a look around the NBA. The NBA has the Heat, Magic, 76ers, Lakers, Clippers, Knickerbockers, and Celtics. None of those names are “tough’, but are meant to be a reflection of the city that they call home (technically not the Lakers, but they were named the Lakers when they called Minnesota home).

After reading this today and seeing the logo and apparel, I really am liking this name change.
