Can someone get this asshole banned? He's starting to ruin this forum.

 

On topic:

It's finally time to say goodbye to one of the absolute worst names in the major sports. They haven't done much for us honestly, with 2 sweeps and 8 years of horrendous basketball, which culminated in the worst record in NBA history a couple of years ago. I can't say I'm sorry to see the name retired, but the Charlotte Bobcats will always be up there with the Vancouver Grizzlies as the worst sports teams ever. All in all, I'd say the future looks pretty bright if we make a few moves in the offseason, I see another playoff year in store next season.

Bismack Biyombo is the last player to score as a Charlotte Bobcat, which is just so perfect.

Best way I can explain it is, when the Bobcats lose it just makes me sick to my stomach and pisses me off. Win or lose I love my Hornets.. I know it's just the changing of a name but for me it's more. Anyone who grew up as a kid watching the Hornets will understand.

The real question is who starts the 'Bring back the Roar 2024' campaign tomorrow?

The one takeaway from a franchise of awful teams and front office ineptitude...there's a couple of pieces here now. Have a couple strong offseasons in a row, coupled with LBJ/Wade getting older and the East could become up for grabs barring a new superstar coming to the conference. 

 

As shitty as it seems from a fan perspective, I'll be more of a fan of the Hornets than the Bobcats. It's not something I can explain and fans who have stuck by the Bobcats have their right to complain about people like me. Since Jordan retired, I never had an NBA team and enjoyed players/the league as a whole much more than the Charlotte franchise. It's why I'm usually found in threads about building a team/contender or the league in general as opposed to actual game threads. Hopefully that will be changing from here on out. Looking forward to the Hornets.

I think one thing people forgot about this whole "rebrand" thing was that the name wasn't changed to appease fans and sell more tickets. It wasn't done in the name of nostalgia. I honestly think that the team has been such a disaster since it's arrival Jordan had to change the name. He needed a fresh start. The team has been a joke for 70% of the time it's been in the NBA. Not to mention the negative association with the former owner. 

 

Oh well, it's been real Bobcats. Cheers to a fresh new start. Really excited about the future of this team.
