Re: 2012-13 Around the NBA thread

Rumor only at this point: deal in the works to bring the Sacramento Kings to Seattle.

Seattle Kings works...King County.

Re: 2012-13 Around the NBA thread

New Orleans unveiled their new logo.




Charlotte is getting the Hornets identity back.

They've already started the transition it appears. Bobcats' new court:

Re: 2012-13 Around the NBA thread

They've reached a deal in the Sacramento-Seattle move for the Kings, just needs league approval. The Mayor of Sacramento is blowing a gasket over it apparently. Guess who that is? Remember Kevin Johnson from the Suns in the 90s?

They'll definitely have more fans in Seattle than Sacramento.

Supposed to be for the 2013-14 season.

Yep. Softball maybe.

I do think Hornets belongs in Charlotte though, but Pelicans is really bad. Well-done logo at least.

Cajuns might have been a great name...have an evil-looking lobster/crawdad for a mascot. Red, orange and black colors.

Cajuns is much better than Pelicans

Re: 2012-13 Around the NBA thread

Yeah, but someone would say it was racist. You know that would happen. Ole Miss had to stop using their mascot Colonel Reb because people were "offended". He looks like the KFC guy, he was a harmless mascot.




A bird was the safe approach.

Re: 2012-13 Around the NBA thread

North Dakota got burnt too. They can't be the "Fighting Sioux" becasuse they put it on the ballot after the NCAA threatened them. I think the taxpayers just didn't want the legal fight.

The NCAA said the team would have to forfeit games if they used the name in the NCAA Tourney (hockey). They're a championship-caliber team too.


I remember the same threats against the FSU Seminoles in the NCAA basketball tourney. They could not use their name or mascot anywhere during tournament play. It's a tribe name, of a tribe in Florida. What is offensive? I hate this crap. I really hate it because so many people are giving into it and they'll never stop harassing the Redskins. U of Miami in Ohio has already changed from the Redskins to the stupid name of the Redhawks. Why are people making up types of hawks? Redhawks? Seahawks? Hawks should sue. No one wants angry hawks.

Redskins fans may want to keep an eye on North Dakota tonight - The Washington Post

I just hope the skins never change the name. It would be hard to watch if they were something else

Yep. I love watching it too!


Bulls are already having a great year. Derrick Rose is resuming workouts now. They'll be unstoppable when he comes back.

Sacramento deserved better. This is just like the Browns moving to Baltimore
