New Orleans Pelicans Get Hella Creative To Ride The Travis Kelce-Taylor Swift Hype Train

When it comes to the Kansas City Chiefs' Super Bowl victory, the New Orleans Pelicans are all set.

“New Orleans Pelicans?”

Yes, the New Orleans Pelicans are celebrating starting center Travis K… I mean. Jonas Valanciunas, who looks just like Taylor Swift's boyfriend. And seriously, the resemblance is not realistic at all.

After the Chiefs' victory over the San Francisco 49ers on Sunday night, New Orleans players joked with Valanciunas and wished him “congratulations” on winning the Super Bowl.

And Valanciunas was just that.

Things got even better on Monday night when the Pelicans' social media team got involved and posted a photo of Valanciunas warming up for New Orleans' game against the Memphis Grizzlies on X.

“We won the Super Bowl last night and are already back to work,” the Pells wrote.

If you're an NBA team and want to ride on the hype surrounding Travis Kelce and Taylor Swift's relationship, there's no better way to do it than this. This is pure genius.

Side note: How do New Orleans Saints fans feel about this?

If the Miami Heat were here to celebrate the Kansas City Chiefs and the Miami Dolphins were right there, I'm not going to lie, I'd be a little annoyed. (Related: Mark Cuban slams Spencer Dinwiddie over incredibly shady social media posts)

But that's just me as a fan…as an outsider, but this is a classic.
