Korver is, at least, certainly a Dutch surname.
There is a company in 's Hertogenbosch called Korver Holland. (Installation materials for heating, gas, plumbing, and PVC parts.)

Perhaps the founders of the team are big fans of Dutch-American basketball player Kyle Korver and the bird is a loose reference to the logo of his former team, the Atlanta Hawks?
