Looks like we will have to name a section of the arena after you.

Nerlens Noel already has the classic hornets haircut. No coincidences.

Nerlens Noel is the new Larry Johnson with the Kendall Gill do.

18 Months would equal the beginning of the 2014-15 season, which was our target from the start. Everything seems to be falling into place!

A lot of folk have been bringing up the fact that New Orleans' rebrand was 'expedited', but the reality is that it will have been almost exactly 18 months since Benson declared his intentions to rebrand his squad before they actually take the court as the Pelicans (April 2012 - October 2013).

I don't know anything concrete, but there have been whispers of something happening pretty doggone soon. I'm going to steal a page from the Cats' PR playbook: not sure about the timeframe, but I'd be shocked if we don't know something really soon.

I don't see how they could play a full bobcat season knowing it was their last. No one would buy one piece of merchandise.

I agree with Zod, if they announce the name change then it has to be done this year because no one would by merch. If they don't announce it this year, it's not because it's not happening, it's because they don't want merch prices to come to a stand still.

It's essentially the same thing they did in New Orleans. The only difference is no one knew exactly what they'd settled on until January, so it might've seemed like the wait between Hornets and Pelicans was shorter. The reality is that the two timelines (assuming the 'Cats act quickly) are pretty much mirror images of one another.

It seems like Benson kept his under the radar though, albeit the N.O. Pelicans aren't as intriguing as the Charlotte Hornets.

Does this mean we finally bring Kobe home when he is amnestied by the Lakers?

I am all for this if it drives sales, ups attendance and invigorates the city. Otherwise, I just want to win.

Saw Charlotte Observer on FB saying that the convo for the rebranding Hornets is heating up. And the new MJ retro clothing apparel in hornets colors is making me think it'll really happen.

Would be great for the city and the franchise if this were to happen. I literally have never seen someone wearing Bobcats apparel, but I see people wearing old school Hornets stuff all the time. Now for the product on the field....well when you've hit rock bottom the only way to go is up :)

I will be one of the first in line for a new Charlotte Hornets teal and purple jersey. Now just to decide who to get? Custom #23 Jordan? or support the players on the court with an MKG or Kemba? Or I know! how about a custom #1 Hugo jersey?

Can't wait to see how you explain how you love the team more now and identify with them more now that the name has been whitewashed. And how the organization is better and different because the team wears an effeminate color scheme. LOL.
