    Love the Brass but that scheme is too much like the Pacers. They Should go with a black white and Gold scheme, which doesn't currently exist the NBA as opposed to copying the Pacers or the Cavs. Hope this guy Benson doesn't actually make the biggest marketing mistake in NBA history after naming a team the Bobcats and name NO the Pelicans. Seriously, there is no better way to turn off a fanbase than to re-brand a team name, with tons of history, to give it a name like the Pelicans. They should take a leaf out of NJ's book and make their team cool, not family friendly.

    Should have done something like New Orleans Voodoo (but I see that it's already taken).

    I think the pelican is the LA state bird, so there's some relevance. Even so, The Pelicans sounds like a high school team name. The franchise would be making a mistake to choose that name.

    The best names I've heard are The Brass and The Krewe because of their local and cultural relevance, plus both names have double meaning and sound hard ... harder than The Pelicans or the WNBA-inspired Voodoo.

    I agree with your color scheme idea. They should do a Pittsburgh thing and have both of their sports franchises rock the same colors, which is a nice color scheme btw.
