Hornets' New Name Already on the Books?


Official state documents could already contain the new name of our local NBA team, and there's nothing too local in the works so far. According to Hornets 247, the Secretary of State already has “The New Orleans Louisiana Angels, LLC” and “The New Orleans Louisiana Spirit, LLC” on file, along with logos for both teams. (We confirmed, though the filings do not have dates attached to them.) New Hornets owner Tom Benson made it plain that he would change the team's name, setting off a citywide spitballing session. Potentially showing what kind of man he is, Benson would be keeping the religious going with either of those names. Perhaps it's a ploy to change the nickname of New Orleans Arena to "Heaven."
