Charlotte NBA history:

Owner George Shinn....shitty owner
Owner Bob Johnson....shitty owner
Owner Michael Jordan....shitty owner so far (hope he figures it out and brings some talent to this org).

That is all.

What's wrong with being from Lumberton or Fayetteville, and why did you just so happen to name those cities?

As for the name change; I'd be all for it I guess. In fact; I'm down for the Hornets or Cougars. That Cougar attire went hard in the paint. We gotta get some better players in here, though. It doesn't matter what we're called...we still suck.

I'd prefer the Flight personally. Hornets are ok, but I kinda like the Flight name better

The NBA brought a team back to Charlotte not Robert Johnson.


Lies. Why didnt they bring back the Hornets name then?

Without Bob Johnsons money we wouldnt have a team. Without Bob MJ isnt involved in this organization. Be mad at Shinn for assaulting that poor girl. He ruined it for you NO Hornets fans. Theyre never coming back and few people will remember they were here. I cant find a single purple wasp on display uptown. Only that beautiful orange and blue cat. Each year that passes they become more and nore a distant memory. 10 years and counting!

Have the Bobcats ever had sold out crowd? I never felt the excitement/energy with the Bobcats as we did with Hornets. Maybe im grasping at straws hoping by bring Hornets name back home will give us keast half the excitement and energy we once had.


Yes, they have on many occasions. Not to the level of the Hornets, but they have. Especially during the 2009-10 season.

Because they were in N.O. Bob Johnson was only 1 of several potential owners. If he didn't buy the franchise someone else would have.

Either way...funny thread

I grew up on the Hornets around a die-hard Chicago sports family...moved to Charlotte when I was a toddler and had season tickets almost every season from inception. Loved the BBQ at the games, Buzz, the damn fan noise meter, endured the Bobby Phills tragedy at a pretty young age, gotta see Mugsy & Larry too many times to count...it was just awesome.

Went to "pick" out my first Bobcats seats in person at the old Coliseum and that was literally it for me before they even played a game. Shin was a complete d*ck but he at least had it right for the first half of his run. This Bobcats thing beginning from the name "vote" to the damn season ticket choosing was terribly run and they had NO idea how to market for a evolving transplant SE-US city.

If they honestly can figure out a legit cost-benefit analysis of this situation, I'd support the Hornets coming back but I'm not a huge proponent for it because I love history but drive for the future. Its seems cliche but I'm just indifferent at this point. THe Bobcats have been here for 10 years and I'm back with my family's true colors hockey & basketball wise.
