RIP CHARLOTTE BOBCATS

Glad you're excited about the Hornets coming home (as am I) but comparing a once state of the art, professional basketball cathedral to a glorified high school gym with no working AC is a little less than flattering. 

 

You are right though about the energy at TWC regarding the bobcats. I go to about 4 games a year and we usually sit where ever we want and it's pretty tame. That bobcats dj schtick has got to go. 

 

I mean no offense, but the old Colliseum was as generic as every other modern building at that time. 

Made of brick and big. 

The only difference between it and all other NBA buildings I have gone to was the 6 lanes in 2 lanes out pre-game and 6 lanes out 2 lanes in post-game.  Other than that, it was us that made the differnce. 

That, and the permanent hearing loss quality of those in attendance.

 

We are on the same side of a confusing debate.

 

You can win if you se fit.  GO HORNETS!!

I might actually watch an NBA game now for the first time since the Hornets left.

To my shame, I actually get that reference :(
 

 

There is no shame, only commonality.

Can't wait for us to ruin the Hornets legacy as well! Woo hoo


Gtf out of our forum. Seriously, why are you here? Shut up or go away. Two years ago we were the worst team in the league. Now we are in the playoffs and with one or two good signings we can win some playoff games.

You are a weak sauce fan and your posts are just nonsensical eyesores. Go away.

Never gave to shits about the Bobcats and thought Rufus was a Some kind of mangy dog/cat that just needed to be taken out back and shot. I have no love loss with the extinction of this team symbol. It's funny how I never gave two shits about this team until the Hornets were officially coming back.

I only started getting behind the team once I bought season tickets for the Hornets and actually like the players on the team. I grew up in love with the Hornets. Didn't give two shits about the Bulls. Yes, MJ was awesome and all that but they didn't hold anything to my Hornets. I don't care how many more championships they won. My first pair of athlete endorsed shoes were Larry Johnson's. Feels like finally something that was taken from me has been brought back and I can rekindle my love for it and at the same time relive some happy times from my childhood. of course I have a new pair of Larry Johnson's just waiting for next season.

The Hornets are back!!!! A smile is brought to my face just saying those words!!!

Hopefully Rufus gets hit by a car while leaving the stadium. Would be the perfect ending to that bastard of misery!!!

I was 7 when Zo hit the defining shot in Charlotte's NBA history. When they moved to New Orleans I remained a Hornets fan but it wasn't anywhere close to the same. When Tom Benson bought the team that was the final straw for me. For 2 seasons I've been kind of in limbo team wise. But now my team is back! It's difficult to describe how I feel right now but I am pumped! Go Hornets!

Thanks for the memories!?! Dunno here. Having been in the " Bring Back the Buzz" crew here on the forum debating back and forth about WHY we needed our identity back for the last couple years I'm walking on Air. I even got into it on "bustin loose" over this whole thing one time, pretty heated that day, (lol Frank Garcia).

It's all done now. Captain Morgan and the rest of us can lay down our swords. It was never about all the "wins" for us real Hornet fans. It was about OUR team. OUR team is back.

GO HORNETS!!!!

I hope you weren't one of the MANY douchebags in the BBTB crowd that completely hated on the team and anyone who cheered for the Cats. That whole BBTB thing really made me sour on the Hornets name. I've embraced it since but that was ridiculous how many Hornets fans talked crap about the players on the team (and will be on the Hornets team) and the fans that supported them.

Not at all. I'm a Charlotte homer. I've been to quite a few Bobcat games, bought gear, the whole nine, but what David Stern did to us was wrong. I've never hated on this team. I just strongly supported the NBA doing the right thing.
