Hornets fluffers still use Shinn's logo and colors instead of creating their own. They're still fighting his battles, still tryna capitalize off what he built. If we did change to the Hornets, they'd put his statue in front of TWC Arena. Shinn is still their guy. Being a rich black person is worse than rape in Charlotte to these idiots.

George Shinn was a piece of garbarge as a human being. He many MANY mistakes in his personal life and his a complete scumbag.

However, his management of the Hornets is SPECTACULAR compared to either Johnson or Jordan....and that is a fact.

Take a look at the win-loss record.....the drafting success....post season appearances......all are light years ahead of anything that the Johnson/Jordan combination have delivered.

Jordan has systemically taken a mediocre team and turned them into the WORST roster and team in the HISTORY of the NBA.

The most monolithic movement in history. Black people dont support the Hornets Rebrand movement, and could care less about Hornets revolutionary history. Thats why we're still the Bobcats. If you don't like it, move to Australia.

Not true. Most of the black people I know are on board with the movement. You are a very small minority of people who don't support the movement.

What these brain damaged BJ-blowers don't seem to comprehend is that despite how horrible of an owner Shinn was, he didn't name the team after himself so that we are obligated to recall how horrible of an owner he was everytime someone says our name. The first team here was named the Hornets, not the Shinncats. If we were named the Bobcats and our first owner who named the team was named Steve Johnson, no one would be asking for a name change.

King T - why haven't you responded to QC Thundercats at Bobcats Planet?

He squashed your black people don't support the movement thread.

Here is the link to that thread

Also, I ran into Sage Steele from ESPN yesterday ( she is the sister of one of my friends) I was wearing my Charlotte Hornets hat and "Bring Back The Buzz" shirt and she said she loved it.

Sonya Gant from WBTV and her Dad (Harvey- former Mayor of Charlotte that happens to be Black) are also behind the movement now. Sonya actually called John personally and and asked him to come into the studio and interviewed him on air. It was an entire segment.

There is a Charlotte Hornets Draft Lottery Party tonight raising money for Charlotte Metro School (a school for kids with developmental needs). There are kids from all races that need help and this is an awesome cause. You are more than welcome to attend and contribute to a great cause.

For you to paint this movement as racist is really sad.

It's 2012, we are better than this.

If you want to talk about some Uncle Toms, not sure what the worst Bob Johnson creation is: BET or the Bobcats.

I never said Shinn was great. He had a biblical decline. It really goes to show how bad Jordan and Johnson have been when they can't even match up to a rapist who demanded the city build him a new arena.
