The New Orleans Hornets are changing their names to Pelicans.
The New Orleans Hornets have confirmed that they will be switching their name to Pelicans for the next season. Have no fear my fellow mortals, I know your knees are trembling right now at the thought of a large water bird swooping you into it's mouth. At least it is as bad as it sounds, I mean being kept into a throat pouch, separated from your loved ones until you become mentally insane and slowly wait for the day the Pelican chews you up into pieces can't be that bad. No wait, it would be the worst. Not sure if you can get any respect in the afterlife, telling people you got killed by a Pelican.
Seriously though, a Pelican could turn out way better than you can imagine. Think about the mascot opportunities, remember when that blow up Raptor swallowed a cheerleader, a Pelican version will take it to a whole new level (ALL THE CHEERLEADERS). If you are not into that, maybe the incredible amount of Anthony Davis's unibrow X pelican .gif opportunities may change your mind. Whether you like it or not, this will go down as one of the most joked about NBA news, and history will be made on Twitter.
