So 7 months ago Uni Watch had a redesign contest when Tom Benson announced he wanted to change the Hornets to something more New Orleans-based. They recently announced it would the New Orleans Pelicans, which happens to be the team name I chose. Most people seem to hate the name, but I like it. Paul was kind enough to remember my design and reach out for my thoughts. Originally, I picked a rather unique color combo, but with Mrs. Benson saying she hoped for the team’s new colors to be navy blue, red, and gold (blah) I recolored my design to the suggested colors.
