Basketball is back!! The NBA season officially started last night and our home opener is Saturday! FINALLY!!!
Last night was the first game of the season. It didn’t have the result we were all hoping for, but that’s the beauty of the NBA…there is always another game. Last night’s game didn’t end until after 12:30 a.m. our time which is WAY too late for me. Tonight we play at Portland — another game past my bed time — but it’s fun to be able to WATCH us play (pre-season games were broadcast via radio only). We’re playing a new style of basketball and it. is. exciting.
Since the team rebranded to the Pelicans, I have been on the hunt for red and blue clothing and accessories. Some of the items I found online are so cute — the color change has been great — much easier to find navy and red!
Lucy Rose, a local boutique, has some great pieces that are VERY Pelicans game-day friendly (4, 7, 9, 23) and I am LOVING the cardigans — a must for games in case it gets chilly in the Smoothie King Center.
The Real LA shirt is awesome — would be a great shirt for when we play the Lakers or the Clippers. The fringe booties are from Candy Apple, another local boutique. Fringe booties are at the top of my list for shoes, so I may have to run over and see if they still have them in my size.
For the local fans, below are three items the Pelicans Shop by adidas (located at the Smoothie King Center) is currently carrying. Unfortuantely, they’re not on the Pelicans shop site, but the burlap bag, especially, is so cute.
After making the playoffs last year, I really hope the locals are looking forward to the season — it’s going to be a good one!
If you’re really a superfan — you could add one of these to your game-day look!
Have a great day and Go Pelicans!
