Playing in the Western Conference of the NBA, New Orleans Pelicans have been placed in the Southwest Division since they joined the league in 2002. The franchise is based out of New Orleans and their home ground was called the New Orleans Arena before being renamed as Smoothie King Center.
A Tale of Three Cities
In a short span of time in the league, the Pelicans have witnessed their fair share of turmoil and upheaval. The franchise was initially established when the owner of Charlotte Hornets decided to relocate his club to New Orleans. However, in the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina, the Hornets were unable to play their home games. As a result, the franchise was relocated to Oklahoma and thus, the Oklahoma Hornets were formed.
Coming Back Home
However, after two seasons in Oklahoma, the Hornet faithful wanted to go back home. Luckily the facilities back home had improved by then and the club was able to play the 2007 season from New Orleans.
A Fresh Start
In 2013, the Charlotte Hornets took back their original name and history and thus the New Orleans based team was left with a clean start with which to record their achievements. In coming up with a new identity, the name New Orleans Pelicans was chosen.
Getting Better With Each Game
In the turbulent thirteen seasons so far, the fledgling franchise has given a good account of themselves. With a win-loss record that stands at 498-552 and is only just below .500 the Pelicans know they are on the cusp of greatness.
