NBA commissioner David Stern said Monday that Utah’s keeping the Jazz.

After Hornets owner Tom Benson recently expressed interest in returning the nickname to New Orleans, Stern shot down the idea at the same time he announced the Crescent City will host the 2014 NBA All-Star Game.

"I wouldn’t make it such an important point," said Stern, according to The Times-Picayune. "There are many things that are indigenous to [this] area. I’m sure there will be some [new] wonderful nicknames."
