New Orleans’ new uniforms need more pelican

NOLAPtopper8113

Anthony Davis and Darius Miller are officially Pelicans now, and they have the uniforms to show for it. Check out New Orleans’ new unis, which are pretty darn boring. Color Anthony not impressed at the press conference yesterday:

I mean, if you’re going to be the Pelicans, you might as well embrace it, right?

Tell me that wouldn’t make LeBron James quiver in fear. Amirite?

    Fitting.. boring uniforms for the worst named team in all of sports. How can a pelican be intimidating at all??

    I don’t know. I suspect a fish swimming near the top of the water in the Gulf of Mexico finds a pelican plenty intimidating.

    The pelican needs to be tatted up, like the rest of NOLA

    What player holds the record for most points scored against UK in a single game (through ’87)? http://r.ebay.com/p9hupD

    Pelican? Is that really the only thing New Orleans can think of to have as a mascot? How bout the New Orleans Cajun’s! Sounds spicy!
    How bout the New Orleans Swamps! You’ll get tangled in their DEFENSE!

    Anything would have been better than Pelicans.
    I do like the colors however.

    The whole “mascot must be intimidating” premise is really really stupid. How many of you are scared of magic, or nets, or nuggets, or suns, or Knicks, or deer, or hot temperatures, or lakers, or clippers, or jazz music, or spurs, or a car engine part, etc etc, so shaddup

    1. Where the hell is it written that a team name has to be itimidating? Do people get scared to play a team because their mascot would be dangerous in real life? It’s supposed to represent the area that the team is from. Knickerbockers, 49er’s, Metropolitans, Yankees, Red Sox, Padres, Pistons, Brewers, Celtics, etc. Besides, Pelicans are a lot more dangerous than Hornets.

    Why not just a big white splat on the front . . . that would be intimidating?

    How awesome would it have been for the Utah Jazz to give their nickname to NOLA so they could become the Stormin’ Mormons??

    Boring uniforms. Idk why everyone thinks the pelican is such a bad mascot though, there are worse. Clippers? Trailblazers? Knicks? And don’t even get me started on the Jazz and Lakers whose names no longer reflect the cities they reside in

    Not sure who came up this lame a$$ mascot, but whomever it was ought to be shot. What a stupid fuc#ing name.

    See, just like #15 here. Perfect example of an overreaction without thinking. Is it a fearsome mascot? No, but if you sit back and really think about how many other worse mascots there are in sports that are just blindly accepted because they have been around for so long, you might stop yourself from sounding foolish.
