Posted in the GV takeover thread but this picture deserves it's own thread.
I actually like it a lot more than i thought i would .
It’s official. The New Orleans Hornets will be known as the New Orleans Pelicans at the beginning of the 2013-14 NBA season. The team made the announcement via NBA.com late on Thursday afternoon...
FWIW I thought this logo leaked in December was much better.

Looks better than I expected.
Logo is OK, but I hope they have a dopey-looking mascot and don't go with a fearsome one. The greatness of the Pelican name (and it is great) is that it's not one of those bullshit, boring fake-scary names like Thunder or Thrashers or Panther. The best team names are wimpy or outdated i.e. Terrapins, Red Sox, Lakers, etc.
Lennay Kekua approves!
Wow. This is NOT roomy!
It's a little busy but I'm so glad they went with something symmetrical.
i like the bird-de-lis. just the name more so than the logo.
I've always liked the NOLA thing.
Had the potential for disaster, but that logo is not half-bad.
Ummm...was Atlanta aware
Jackie Robinson isn't dirty. This isn't Pack Pride.
I would have used a profile view of the Pelican to emphasize its awesome fat beak/pouch thing.
Good job. Could have been pretty bad looking.
a lot of the fake leaked logos were better
i think they should have went with rougarou just so i could hear barkley butcher the pronunciation
Very similar to the Nats colors.

I'm a fan...I like the name switch too. Terpesquue in its uniqueness
i have done a 540 on this...i like them a lot.
any idea when the jerseys come out? I'd love to buy a #21 Pelicans jersey depending on how good they look
Pelicans are awesome.

It inspires fear.
The color scheme is a little bleh. Like others have said, it looks like the Nats and Hawks. Should have gone with something similar to the original Jazz colors.
Agreed, love the name change, don't mind the logo, but I'm not crazy about the color scheme. I'll still prolly get a GV jersey though
RedSoxTerpsLakers and Satin agree.
Yeah the color scheme looks better suited for architecture/interior design. Not a fan.
The logo is good and I agree, dopey mascot all the way. This is actually a surprisingly well done name/logo change, aside from the colors as others have said.
