Man, the Jazz were in New Orleans for 4 seasons (’75-’79) and now 41 seasons in Utah (’80-’21).

It made sense to call the team “Jazz” in New Orleans…why don’t they change their nickname to something else? Utah Arches? Heck, if they ever get Zion on their team they should call themselves the National Parks.

Then the Pelicans could change their name to “Jazz” and get rid of the scary mascot, the L*kers could change their name to anything that doesn’t involve lakes, and the world would make a little more sense. (Er, well, would have to move New Orleans and Minnesota to the Eastern conference, too.)

Sacramento, on the other hand, has always been known for its many Kings!

Oh, yeah. Haha.

Hmmm… Sacramento Capitals? Capitols? (eh, sounds too much like a tennis team.)

Sacramento Pig Bowls?

Sacramento Pollen! (that’s pretty intimidating, if you ask me)

I think that it should be mandatory for teams to keep their names when they move, because it makes for such stupid juxtapositions as we have the the Jazz. Not a lot of substantial lakes in Los Angeles.

OKC should have had to keep the Sonics name, since the chain is easily the largest employer/calorie source in Oklahoma.

Zion National Park is one of my favorite NP’s I’ve visited. The Angels Landing trail was tiring but very unique (because of the steep drop offs and chains they have placed on the last half mile) and rewarding when you get to the top.

Man, when you pull up basketball-reference it shows the All-time Top 12 Players for each team. Most of the Kings top 12 are black and white photos (because they’re old, from the previous cities, not Sacramento), while most other NBA teams have more recent players.

So you’re saying that Sacramento hasn’t had a lot of success? Someone should write a column about that. Maybe two.

This is one of those rare correlation = causation moments, I guess.

On that note, I read your comment and now I’m late for work.

Andy Sims makes you late for work!

I wonder what animals think are the reason for them getting pregnant?

Elephant: “Damn. I covered myself in mud 18-22 months ago, and now there’s a mini-me.”

It will never not be astounding to me that Utah has an NBA team. I mean, those years in New Orleans were rough, but Salt Lake City couldn’t have had more than 600 people living there in 1979.

Minnesota’s team should’ve moved there:

The Salt Lake Lakers!

That would have been a lot better.

And that happened in 1958! I don’t think SLC was even founded until 1971.
