This is a REAL STORY commented on publicly by the Bobcats.

I'd like Nate as well. But the natives might not feel like he's truly one of "us" so who knows. Bring back Allen Bristow!

They wont let it go after 8 years, its Bobcat fans turn now. Hornet fans taught me never let go of a grudge, and if need be divide this city to reach your goal. This is what we wanted remember teeray?

I just want the NBA in Charlotte to be viable. Is that not what you want??

I want the BOBCATS to be successful teeray. Thats different than what you stated. The BOBCATS need a new head coach, not the fairweather city of Charlotte. Our website is bobcats.com not charlotte.com

And I want the franchise to be here in North Carolina for years to come. No matter whether they are called the Bobcats, Hornets, Cougars, or some other name.

There is no question that the first step in rebuilding the relationship that the franchise has with the community is signalling a true change and re-birth of NBA basketball. For whatever reason, whether it be about race or something else, the name Bobcats is stained and people will not support it.

Whether you think it is a racist city or not is for your own determination. I don't agree. But that is you belief and that is fine.

What is inarguable is that the people who can make this thing viable (i.e. fans) are the people who have overwhelmingly rejected the Bobcats nickname (Bobcats is still trailing the Cougars on CharlotteObserver poll for crying out loud). Stubbornness about a name won't address the problem.

It is a business. You can be stubborn and fail, or adjust and thrive.

The people you speak of gave up on the Hornets and helped us sell out all of our playoff games within minutes 2 years ago teeray. The buzz movement is stained and tainted with white racism and ignorance towards local blacks. It doesnt appeal to a wide array of people. Just folks locally who dont watch the NBA. Our name isnt changing, and neither have the Hornets get over it or pull for New Orleans. We dont want petty people like that in our fanbase. We look down on them actually.

Id rather we fail as the Bobcats then to conform to the wishes of racists and non fans. No ones put a gun to your head teeray. If Bob bothers you that much, the door is that way.

Hey King, can you provide evidence of the racism towards the blacks regarding the Hornets rebrand movement? And don't tell me some old white lady gave you a funny look when she saw you wearing a DJ Augustin jersey.

Dave Cowens! Bring him back! The arena would sell out in seconds. All the old fans would come out of hibernation. I get goosebumps just thinkin bout it!

Yo King!

Still waiting on the evidence of racism with a Charlotte Hornets rebrand!

PLEASE!!!! This season has all ready been enough, it would be nice if all of this talk could be debated in 1 thread dedicated to this. I am not a fan of seeing almost EVERY SINGLE CHARLOTTE BOBCAT related thread turn into this poo. Please just stop or take it all to one thread.

If the Knicks don't retain Woodson, you guys should go after him. He brought the Hawks from the basement to the playoffs and just look at what he did for the Knicks. The question is though, would Calipari leave UK for the Knicks?

That is true that that post started it, but he is supposed to be modding the forum and not continuing this stuff. It goes both ways in this forum lately...

Getting back to the Head Coach search. Will anyone like a Nate McMillan want the job in Charlotte? Almost have to go with a no name assistant coach, Nate and some of the others have better options than the Bobcats.

Basically, people have realized nothing will be done about KT so now they just find their own ways to deal with it - including creating angry threads about it, trolling KT, and being just general jerks about the situation.

What the hell does racism have to do with any of this? Blah.

On the coaching search... I never understood while a lot of the same NBA coaches are cycled and past around the league.... Shouldn't teams be looking for someone new who has not been givin a chance yet?

McMillan has ties to NC so that's why he has been brought up. Still not the most appealing job but it makes it more likely for someone like McMillan.

I agree. But sometimes it's the known vs the unknown.

I was mocking his trolling. I honestly figured he'd come in here and say that he was fired over being black.

A large part of it is the idea that you really need to be better than last season at almost any cost when you are a very bad team (or even a mediocre one hoping to make more playoff pushes). It isn't always about winning a championship any time in the short term. That is obviously the hope - but there are some cases where it is about hiring someone that can make a team competitive and get it to a place where it is building a solid foundation.
