http://sports.mync.c...cats-team-name/

The thing is that I’m open for anything. It’s a commitment. We have to go through the league. It’s a process. It’s a financial commitment. Am I willing to look at that and say can we go down that road? Yeah. If I get the understanding from the community, from the public, that we need it and it signifies change, yeah, I would do that. But once again, it’s a process. It’s a $3-million to $10-million investment to do that. I’m not afraid of that, as long as at the backside of that, the public is going to be happy about that, that it’s going to be great for the organization. I think it [could be] a new beginning. Yeah, I would do that. I would consider that.


Jordan really gets it.... I have no doubt that in time, this team will be competitive. Mark Cuban got it, and he turned Dallas from Completely Irrelevant to a competitive team every year, and got it done quickly. At the end of the day Jordan understands he has to make the city and fans of the team happy. He will do what he can to win, and bring the fan base to the game and bigger supporters of the team. Jordan is a doer... Not complaining, just seems to be open to solutions on different challenges the team is facing...

The more I think about it, the more I don't want it to happen. When the team name came out, I really didn't like it. But I think it's too late in the game to change the name. I mean I think a name like Thunder is worse than ours, but because they are winning, no one talks about the team name. And what would people do with all the apparel.

I didn't like the name at first either. But I liked it better than the Dragons or the Flight.

I still haven't heard or come up with a name I like anyway. Everything either sounds like a high school team or just doesn't impress.

Dumb idea this late in the game. But I can't wait to see the Charlotte Jumpmen play. Hell, why not institute a new policy where every new owner gets to change the name to whatever they want. Then we'll have "Nextel presents the Charlotte RadioShack Energizer Bunnies".

As are The Supersonics...
But seriously, am I the only one who thinks New Orleans should change there name so we can go back to being the Charlotte Hornets?

Keep the name and use the 3-10 mil for players/fan experience/improvements.

As the poor memories of Bob Johnson's early seasons' incompetence and racism fade, then so will the distaste for the Bobcats.

I love how people act like sooooo much has changed over 2 months when all Jordan has done is written two letters to the public.

I tend to agree. Its not the name that is so bad. Its the dummy that the name makes everyone think about that is bad about it. Thank God Bob Johnson is gone for good!
