The New Orleans Hornets will officially become the New Orleans Pelicans next season. New Orleans Hornets owner Tom Benson is changing his team`s nickname to the Pelicans because "the switch will create a bond with the city that could lead to a championship" said Benson. The new logo color scheme is blue, gold and red, a departure from the Hornets` teal, purple, gold and white. The Hornets announced the name change on Thursday and is waiting for the NBA to approve it. I am happy for them and wish them much success.
