Wow, this is great news!

I literally just got done w/ an e-mail/letter about why Jordan should change the name to the "Flight". I sent it to the Bobcats front office (it probably won't get read, but it's definitely worth a shot)

All the help (from fans) we can get will send a message to MJ (which it seems like he already knows)

In hindsight, I'm so glad Bob Johnson was rewarded the franchise and not Larry Bird. Now we have the greatest ever running the team and he seems to really be in tune w/ with the fans.

I'm super excited for Charlotte basketball!

Thank you MJ!!!

It's def. not too late in the game.

It would be a smart move...on many levels...

We shouldn't feel we Have to keep the name now just b/c it's the name. It's a terrible name, and most of you now saying 'no' know that.

I'm sure that's what Magic fans were thinking in 1988.

Look at these photos, just imagine the possibilities!

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.

It's more about the buzz that's being created.

Not actually changes to the franchise.

He can do that though by changing the name.

Jordan wants this to be his team...not BOB Johnson's.

...and still very much in Michael's ear. Seeing our joke of a newspaper and the haters try to stick it to Bob Johnson while he is still in ownership and has alot of influence over our current owner and front office just might just be FAIL of the decade. :lol:

I think, for this franchise, the fail of the decade was naming the team the BOBcats ...after his ego, which took precedence over what the fans wanted. Doomed from the start.

MJ can change everything. It is truly in his hands.

Why don't you quit being selfish and think about the core fanbase that has supported this team since day 1 and has bought a ton of merchandise?

So willing to spend other people's money and turn their fan apparel into a dishrag.

I think if they change the name at this point, its gonna leave the same bad taste in my mouth that Shinn did with his mishandling of the Hornets.

They change the name, and I will probably no longer continue to support them.

Is that a threat?

?

Who could I possibly be threatening with that?

No. Its a statement. I would probably drop them like I did the Hornets the last 3 years they were here.

A name like Flight would be even more embarrassing than the Hornets.

Its become painfully obvious that the name change crowd really doesn't give a damn about the team or the fans.

    • http://www.alternet.org/grayzone-project/fbi-isis-garland-texas-shooting-undercover-agent The first attack on U.S. soil for which ISIS claimed responsibility—a 2015 shooting in Garland, Texas—was instigated by the FBI, according to an investigation by CBS' "60 Minutes" and government documents obtained by an attorney involved in the case. In a macabre twist, an undercover FBI agent who encouraged one of the shooters to "tear up Texas" was also physically present at the scene of the crime, mere feet away from the shooters. Prior to that, a separate informant was paid $132,000 by the FBI to pretend for three years to be friends with the future shooter. When the man found out his supposed friend had taped more than 1,500 hours of their conversations on behalf of the intelligence agency, he withdrew from his religious community and eventually fell into online religious extremism. ...... On May 3, 2015, two Islamist extremist gunmen opened fire at an exhibit for cartoons of the Islamic prophet Muhammad in Garland, Texas. The contest featured key figures in the Islamophobia industry, including anti-Muslim demagogue Pamela Geller and extreme-right Dutch politician Geert Wilders. The intentionally provocative exhibit was swarming with security, including dozens of police officers, snipers and a SWAT team. The heavily armed attackers injured a security guard outside the building before they were themselves promptly shot by snipers and killed. ISIS soon after took credit for the shooting. There is no evidence that ISIS organized the attack, but the shooters had been independently radicalized and were inspired by the genocidal extremist group. In the two years since, the Garland shooting has been used to justify a vast array of anti-Muslim policies and measures. A new investigation by the investigation team at "60 Minutes," nevertheless, shows that the FBI was deeply implicated in the attack. ..... After the trial, Maynard was given 60 pages of declassified messages between an undercover FBI agent and one of the shooters, Elton Simpson. These documents showed that, less than three weeks before the attack, the FBI agent had told Simpson to "Tear up Texas." This "to me was an encouragement to Simpson," the attorney told "60 Minutes." The government denied that the text constituted incitement, but the FBI's involvement did not end there. "60 Minutes" reported that the U.S. government admitted in an affidavit that the undercover FBI agent also physically "traveled to Garland, Texas, and was present ... at the event." "I was shocked," Maynard told the news program. "I was shocked that the government hadn't turned this over. I wanted to know when did he get there, why was he there?" Documents the government gave to the attorney showed that the FBI agent had in fact been in a car behind the two shooters at the time of the attack. The undercover FBI agent even used his cell phone, several feet away, to film the building's security guard seconds before he was shot by the Islamist extremists. "It's stunning," Maynard told "60 Minutes." "The idea that he's right there 30 seconds before the attack happens is just incredible to me." ..... The undercover FBI agent fled the scene of the crime before being stopped at gunpoint and detained by Garland police. ..... Dabla Deng, the informant, pretended to be Simpson's friend for three years, "60 Minutes" reported. Deng taped more than 1,500 hours of their conversations. When Simpson "found out that this guy was spying on him, and taping him and then finding out that the government was doing that, I think something clicked in him," recalled Usama Shami, president of the Islamic Community Center of Phoenix. "And the mosque, we couldn't do anything." "He felt that the mosque had abandoned him?" Anderson Cooper asked. "Yes. And he felt that a lot of people had abandoned him. And that's why he stopped coming to the mosque," Shami said. After this, Simpson moved in with his friend Nadir Soofi, who "60 Minutes" noted "had just had a bitter break-up and the pizza parlor he owned was going out of business." The two alienated men drifted into extremist religious communities online, and were attracted by ISIS recruiters.
    • i actually took this test a year ago because i was talking to this girl who was a psych major and really invested in this test. then i was talking to this other girl who was also a psych major and she thought there wasn't much to it, she basically didn't have respect for it. if i took it today it'd probably line up the same. 
    •    There isn't a problem taking a tackle usually. The problem would be taking any of THESE OTs that high. If there was someone close to that, we would have risked so much on Kalil.
