Hornets name would bring back more excitement than the Cougars but I would be happy with either one.

We gon be the Hornets again.

So instead of being a shitty team named the Bobcats....we will be a shitty team named the Hornets.

How about actually bringing in some talent and having a competetive team.

All of this "buzz" about a name change is just a poor attempt by the Bobcats to DO ANYTHING to increase interest in one of the worst teams in the history of the NBA.

Basically. Name change is and always has been a overblown LOCAL issue. Nationally and globally Hornets mean jack and we wont get respect til we start winning. 6 years ago it was "screw the NBA, screw the Hornets, screw the Cats..we never wanted the arena and evil militant carpetbagger Bob built it anyway!" Now in 2012 its "thanks for the arena and all the growth and money that comes with it. Thanks for all your time and hard work the last 8 years, thanks for the hot sexy cheerleaders, but, but I want the Hornets back! Hornets deserve this not those Cats! Purple and teal will make it 1993 again!"

Let's just hope it turns out better than when the Panthers tease a MAJOR ANNOUNCEMENT!

Should be very interesting to watch this unfold.

Renaming the team back to the Hornets would be fine with me. But PLEASE DO NOT bring back the teal and purple. I'm 57 years old and i think that color is SOOOO outdated. Gold and black with another accent color would be much better IMHO>

i agree with bountyhunter....would prefer a modern take on the hornets rather than the outdated color scheme that they have always had.

Hell, I think the Bobcats color scheme is better and I am not a fan of it either.

I bleed teal and purple. Seriously, it's a condition. I have to spend eight hours on dialysis every night just to live.

Have to disagree with y'all about the colors...take a stroll through any Foot Locker/Lids, etc. Throwback Hornets colors/gear is BY FAR the number one NBA-related merchandise in stock. Not New Orleans Hornets. Or Charlotte B**cats. CHARLOTTE HORNETS. Went on a recon mission to a mall when I was visiting Charleston last weekend. Now I doubt you'll see these numbers at the B**Cats team store, but it seems like even Mike himself knows the deal...

You are wrong. No surprise though.

The Bobcats need to do EVERYTHING possible to move away from Robert Johnson. He is arguably one of the worst owners in NBA history and did a lot of things to alienate himself and the bobcats from charlotte and the community. The bobcats were a "toy" for him and his deep pockets. he didn't care about the team/city and it was quite obvious. dude didn't even live here, lol.

Charlotte supported the Hornets. They don't support and will never support the "Bobcats". What a f*cking gay ass name to begin with. The Hornets had the league record for consecutive season sell outs. When is the last time the bobcats had a sell out?

As far as the hornets brand being irrelevant nationally and internationally, you're incorrect again. The Hornets had significant marketing value and were often one of the teams playing exhibitions overseas during the early-mid 90s. LJ/Zo also had high jersey sales. I recall when we got those purple jerseys, man sh*t was crazy how fast those things sold. everyone wanted one.

A couple years ago at college I lived w/ a S.Korean exchange student for one semester. He spoke okay english but knew a lot about the NBA and especially the Charlotte Hornets. He said the most popular teams there were the Bulls, Lakers, and Charlotte Hornets.

F*cking retro Charlotte Hornets gear sells more than the bobcats stuff does now lol.
