It's unique in that it is no some fake-arse cool/tough animal name like Pumas or some other ish. It's easy to be badarse when you are a puma. You do that when you are a pelican...

Eh, its not the best name but not that bad. It's not like "Hornets" is much better. The thing with a lot of team names is it just takes time to get use to.

Sucks the "Hornets" name is no more. I grew up always digging that logo.

Now, the name sucks because of that perception, but the birds are cool.


This is true, but I guess it's how they've been portrayed in media over the years... but yes, they are practically dive-bombers.

Still think it's a lame name thanks to the above meme having worked on me!

^GET IN MY BELLY....lol
For what it's worth, the Lakers also clinched the Pacific Division, an achievement Bryant dismissed by saying "We don't hang divisions." No, only the big NBA championship banners are considered wall-worthy for the Lakers.
