It's out with the teal-dominated Hornets jerseys, and in with the pinstripes, "Creole blue" and "Mardi Gras gold." Check 'em out.
"'We are extremely proud to be the New Orleans Hornets, and our new logos and uniforms pay tribute to the past, present and future of this great city,' said Executive Officer of the Board Chad Shinn. 'These exciting new designs represent our commitment to championship performance on and off the court as we look ahead to a successful future in New Orleans.'"
Yes, pinstripes equal commitment. Remember that the next time you're working on your resume.
After the jump, a look at the Hornets three new/modified logos.
Those all look pretty snazzy. The "Fleur-de-bee" (left) is featured on the side of the shorts and on the center back of the neck of the jersey. The "horn" is placed on the back of the shorts. And the "happy bee" is just, um, there, waiting to be called into action should the "Fleur-de-bee" or "horn" kill a man in Reno or something weird.
