Jrue Holiday welcomes Pelicans fans on behalf of the Sixers

It's been a bad opening night for the Pelicans.

Derick E. Hingle-USA TODAY Sport

Jrue Holiday might know what team he's on, and he might not. We're not sure.

As you might know, he was traded from the Philadelphia 76ers to the New Orleans... Pelicans on draft night, and as the face of the newly named franchise, he was given the opportunity to address the crowd on opening night. And he said... this?

"On behalf of myself and the Sixers, I want to welcome you to the first Pelicans game."

I'm not sure. Is he genuinely confused with opening night jitters? Did he honestly forget where he was? I just hope MURDER PELICAN doesn't punish him for this.
