Seems like everyone is pretty excited about the NBA season tipping off this week. There’s plenty of new faces in new places, one being former Philadelphia 76ers guard Jrue Holiday, who is now a member of the New Orleans Pelicans. I still can’t get over that name, Pelicans. Probably the least intimidating team name in history. Anyhow, Holiday took to the microphone to amp up the crowd before their game against the Indiana Pacers. Just one problem with that: Holiday called the Pelicans the Sixers!
“On behalf of myself and the Sixers, I’d like to welcome you all to the first Pelicans game this year!”
Oh well, stuff happens. I am sure Holiday just got caught up in the moment. The Pelicans subsequently fell to the Pacers, 95-90.
