Nah as long as Jordan makes his public appearances and dances for Charlotte, they'll forgive him for the melanin content.

why do we keep going over this same tired issue, the name change is way down the list of things MJ is considering that might improve the teams bottom line, if you have been paying attention,th e bobcats are adding 6 figure sponsors on a regular basis over the last year or so, i'm sure MJ has something to do with that but most of this is the hard work of Fred Whitfield and his staff as they have come up with creative ways to increase sponsorships and improved game presentation(a good product doesn't hurt either)

After getting swept because your team played like PUNKS, you might as well.

Orlando may have been light years better than the Hawks, but the Bobcats GAVE AWAY game after game.

No Carter and Howard for most of the series, and the Bobcats just chocked it away.

There is no affection for the name now. Had they made a run, it'd be pretty stupid to change the name. After how they performed, people don't want to think about their Playoff appearance, so there is no time better than now to change it.

The only thing tired is you asking that dumb question over and over again.

i actually think the center court bobcat logo is pretty tight. Most opposing team fans ive spoken to (mostly guys ages 19-23, i don't consider female opinons valuable on this subject) said they like that one better than the side panel logo. I would seriously doubt jordan would change the name considering the cost to do so...especially since we're not necessarily in good financial straights from a player/contract persepective.

Jordan's got the money to do it, but runs the risk of alienating the fanbase that's been there this whole time.

Some people won't bolt, some will, but any "fan" brought on board by a name change wasn't a fan to begin with, and are gonna go sit on some other bandwagon during the lean times anyway.

They change the name to something like the flight, and I'm out. Its bullpoo and embarrassing and I'd be ashamed to call myself a fan after that.

Sound like a fairweather fan there. :P

Beside, there will be more fans of the team if they come up with a better name than the Bobcats. Looking at several polls where the majority want a name change is a proof of that. Bobcats just sound like an elementary school mascot's name.

Even more fairweather are those that support a name change because of a poll they saw on the internet.

THERE WILL BE MORE FAIRWEATHER FANS. LIKE YOU. THAT CAN'T SPELL AND THINK GRAMMAR IS THAT OLD WOMAN YOU VISIT ON SUNDAYS IN THE NURSING HOME.

GTFO out of here with your broken engrish and polls. You're not a fan of the team anyway. You're just here to suck KT's balls. Go jack off Jake Delhomme.

That's funny, because plenty of these name-changing supporters want the hornets back, and that mascot has got to be one of the most used for middle school and high school teams ever. And the old Charlotte Hornets logo was cartoony.

that old cartoony logo with the teal and purple was cool hell. Right after the hornets came out with teal, the pistons changed thier colors to teal, and the jaguars chose teal too. The hornets colors were trend setters. The new teal and yellow though in new orleans is ugly as $hit. The butchered a great logo and colors. bobcats name/logo will grow on people...give it time.

The fans joining for that reason would be way more fairweathered than Porn Shop Clerk.

The Hornets were Shinn's elementary school team, I'm pretty sure.

Yeah, I didn't say I didn't like it at the time, I was just referring to the quoted comment saying that the Bobcats was essentially kiddie when the Hornets could have been viewed as the same when they were in Charlotte.
