Never really was a fan of NBA basketball until it was announced the Hornets were coming back. Now I'm watching every game!

The article above descri ing the original transformation of the Hornets was very interesting. Liked it alot and the behind the scenes look was very informative.

Think it would be awesome if they created a movie of the new Hornets. Kind of like "draft day" or one of the other sport movies to help with branding of the new image.

Cannot wait for hornets throwback uniform night.

 

Soooo, anyone know if we will be able to do this?  Technically the Pelicans franchise owns the rights to those jerseys, right?

The pelicans own the history of the Hornets, but they use a different jersey for throwbacks, but your right in that Charlotte doesn't own or have the ability to use those jerseys.

Are you sure?  Because they have the right to produce the old logo for merchandise and sell the throwbacks.  To think that Charlotte can sell throwbacks and merch with the old logo but not wear the logo itself seems, well odd.

    • Best suited for a rotational role
    • We just resigned Cody until 2020-21 and Frank will be on his rookie contract until 19-20. I think we don't need to worry about this at all. The biggest issue we have will be Kemba, but since Kemba and Dwight expire at the same time we will have plenty of money. That Howard trade really helped free up Miles 12m at the right time.  Now, as far as fit is concerned. Zeller just makes everybody look better. He will help out the second unit tremendously. I think he will be a great fit with Monk and Frank in that 2nd unit.  Teams go small, take out Dwight put Zeller in. Marvin not shooting well, but in Frank and team with Dwight or Zeller.  We now have options, something we didn't have last year. 
    • Depends on what the play calling looks like this year. I try to avoid judging individuals on the success of a group, unless it's the HC. If Shula's play calling looks like hot garbage like it has so far and Cam & co. are just making up for it like in 2015, then yes I'll continue to hate him. If the playbook (and situational playcalling) is indeed better then I'll be glad and start warming up to Shula.
