New Orleans Hornets Name Change

It's been announced that the Hornets have been sold to the Saints owner for $338 million. http://espn.go.com/nba/story/_/id/7809655/report-new-orleans-saints-owner-tom-benson-lines-buy-new-orleans-hornets

There's already a forum discussing that, so I don't want to get into that all that much. There have been rumors that there may be a name change in store for the New Orleans NBA Franchise once a new owner took over. http://www.slamonline.com/online/nba/2012/04/new-orleans-hornets-to-change-team-name-once-sold/

I thought it would be pretty funny/interesting to see what you guys would suggest as a new team name. So if you were in charge of making a new team name for the New Orleans Hornets, what would your new team name be?

I think a black and gold

I think a black and gold would look sick. Plus, it matches Saints wear. I've made black and gold jerseys in nba 2k12 and they're ill

New Colors for sure?

Does anyone know if they are using new colors as well? I never really thought about it but the colors now are just a mashup of CharlotteHornets/NewOrleans/Hornets/TealMardiGrasColor...they might as well but I like Mardi Gras colors if they can make it work. Key word work...I mean it is purple, green, and gold we're talking about matching here

I'm posting too much but

I'm posting too much but Benson said it would be a name synonymous with New Orleans, some of these are ridiculous not even for the sake of humor just ignorance.

I agree that the hurricane posts by some people were bad, but I am sticking with my bounty hunters name. They could have bobba fett as their logo and everything. Would be sick.

Can't Wait

Big Hornets Fan! Really hoping we choose something great that New Orleans can rally around. I like "Krewe", that was good. What about the New Orleans Gumbo??
