Last night’s 12-point loss to the Dallas Mavericks marked the end of the Hornets era in New Orleans; today, the Pelicans take flight. One of the worst nicknames in the history of professional sports became effective immediately once the NBA regular season ended for the NO, meaning Anthony Davis and Darius Miller are officially Pelicans now.
What I thought was just a really bad joke and a really good photoshop job, is now a reality. There is no turning back, folks. The Pelicans of New Orleans are real.
