A new team name means a new kit for the NBA franchise.
It might be largely the same team from last season, but the New Orleans Pelicans have changed their entire name and look, which of course means a change in uniform.
Players were shown off in front of a packed media conference with all of the glitz and glamour expected for a major pre-season announcement by an NBA side.
Shame the uniforms themselves did not match the buzz.
While fanatix beleives there is nothing wrong with the kits on display, just there is not much right with them either.
With a name like the Pelicans there was a chance for a disaster uniform which could have set the franchise back drastically in terms of marketing in its first full season in the NBA.
Jersey sales are an excellent barometer of a club’s popularity in the league, and while there is nothing to suggest that people won’t want to buy one, expect maybe having the word Pelicans emblazoned across their chest, there is nothing to make people want to rush out and part with their hard-earned for a singlet.
fanatix wants to know what you think of the Pelicans uniform, is it too boring or is it a safe bet?
