My wife was saying she read that if Chouset bought the team he wanted to investigate changing the name to something more New Orleans specific. (sorry no link) For me its Jazz or Hornets or no thank you. Besides the Fleur de bee is the best logo in the NBA
I read Brass, like the hockey team. It may have just been hot air, poorly sourced. Krewe was my vote if a change was forced.
A Krewe is the group of people who put on a parade plus the parade itself. When we go see Endymion, we see the Krewe of Endymion. When I was in Endymion, I was in the Krewe of Endymion. Not all parades hold to this, as it goes back to the old Mardi Gras in New Orleans and the Mystic Krewe of Comus. Things diverge from their original purpose. Some Krewes now have functions all year, like Endymion, and others are explicitly social clubs, like Zulu Social Aid and Pleasure Club, if I'm remembering right. Zulu used to be a mockery of Rex, but has embraced some of its attributes to make it the most uncanny, in the unhelmlich sense for the Germans and Freudians out there. So, I sort of went off there, but yeah, like a crew but your work at fun, not work.
