Charlotte can get their name back if they ever get another team

One of Louisiana's state nicknames is the Pelican State, while the state bird is the brown pelican

looks like this might actually happen cuz the NBA likes to fukin confuse the fans with this BS like when OKC got a team and they decided to name it Thunder, even though the GS Warriors Mascot had that name, then it just disappeared...lol
