With the 2013-14 NBA season coming soon, the New Orleans Pelicans will take their first steps after being re-branded from the Hornets era.
Recently, Ben Golliver of Sports Illustrated got a chance to ask newly-acquired guard Jrue Holiday about playing for a team named the “Pelicans” and his response was pretty classic:
“I mean, it’s funny, I’m not going to lie,” new point guard Jrue Holiday admitted Wednesday. “It’s funny saying it. ‘We’re the Pelicans.’ But I’ve said it about half a million times now, so I’m used to it.”
Clearly, Mr. Holiday will have to say it with a straight face from now on….
