it could have been worse: mosquitos. i just think of pelican bay, which is hardcore, everytime i hear pelican
At first I wasn’t a fan but when I saw a couple videos of Mother Pelican’s protecting their nest and pelicans eating pigeons whole , the name started to grown on me. Also that bird really means alot Louisiana culturally. This is a pretty good article about it.
You’re not alone Chris.
who gives a freak what Chris Paul think’s. He should be worried about the Clippers.
He’s been the best player the franchise has ever had (including both the Charlotte Hornets and New Orleans Hornets) and the city still loves him…He’s led his team to the number 1 spot in their division. So he’s doing his job. He has nothing to worry about at all really.
I like the name. Better than the Bobcats, Hornets, Grizzlies and about 10 other NBA names
Pelicans… LOL Although it does represent their community, it’s a better name for a D-League/minor league team (I know, already said before). Still favoring that Jazz name but we all know UTAH will never give it up, but SOUL and BLUES would have been perfect.
who gives a freak about what you think?
What per se is better about Pelican’s over Grizzly’s??
Hurt he wanted to leave your team buddy?
you are high
You think he was better than Zo or Lj ? Hmm I gotta do some research.
CP3′s best seasons in NO were the 07-08 and 08-09 seasons where he averaged 21 points, 12 assists, 3 steals and 23 points, 11 assists and 3 steals. At his best, Zo put up around 21 points, 11 rebounds and 3 blocks. I’d take Chris’ stats and the impact of them over Zo.
