Greatest N.O. sports teams of all time: No. 1

1.) 1910 New Orleans Pelicans (87-53) – won Southern Association
The final analysis comes down to not only team success (which the Pelicans definitely achieved for an extended period of time – 10 championships over a 48-year period), but also to star power, and the 1910 version of the Pelicans had perhaps the greatest star in New Orleans sports history: “Shoeless” Joe Jackson.
