    Name change for the Jazz?

    Upon hearing the news that New Orleans are thinking about changing their name from Hornets to the Pelicans. Would you guys as Jazz fans be willing to give up the jazz name or sell it back to New Orleans.

    Personally I am a huge Jazz fan (Probably the biggest Jazz fan in New Zealand) and I wouldn't be totally against the idea of changing the jazz team name. I know it has a lot of history in Utah; but I have never really felt it has worked as a team name.

    I think New Orleans should go back to N.O Jazz. Charlotte should take back the hornets name. And Utah to change to the Utah Avalanche or Utah Saints or some other name. This would also help change the identity of the team from the Jerry Sloan era to a new Favors, Kanter, Hayward era. (Fire Tyrone Corbin too haha, but ill leave my thoughts about that on another thread.)

    IMO no way. The Jazz have played with this name for 30 years or so, and frankly, have taken the name as theirs. Nobody would suggest the Lakers give their name to Minnesota, even with the distinct lack of lakes in Los Angeles (though I guess at least that name has some alliteration)
    It started with Earl [Watson], Randy [Foye] and Marvin [Williams]–the veteran guys. I thought the young guys did a good job of following their lead getting us off to a good start. - referring to the Jazz/Bobcats game on 3/1/13

    Earl, Randy, and Marvin started the first quarter 0-3, scored a whopping zero points, and finished with a turnover in the first quarter.

    Your head coach of the Jazz ladies and gentlemen.

    I, HeavenHarris, hereby pledge to my fellow JFC'rs that I will no longer give out neg-reps. All it does is cause negative things, like fights, drama, bitching, ill will, bad feelings, etc.
    Love, not hate, is the answer bros and moes.

    LOL Lol breaks his pledge 5 days later hahahaha

    I like alliteration. How about the Utah Turds? Sorry, bad joke.

    I can`t believe they are actually thinking of changing to the Pelicans. They just fly around, slowly, eating fish. At least Hornets sting
