no they'd rather forget the previous owner practically ruined the NBA with larry johnson's 80 million dollar contract, let zo walk for glen rice, was accused of rape allegations, held the team hostage before leaving with them, dismantled every successful team charlotte had, and burned every bridge in charlotte just so they can demonize bob johnson some more

Hey man, I'm sorry you still associate the Hornets with Shinn. But a lot of us don't. The Hornets name was around way before that ass clown came to town. But everytime I hear Bobcats, it feels like Bob Johnson's bullshit is still being crammed down my throat. Nobody is saying Shinn wasn't an evil douche. I think you are conveniently lumping shinn and the hornets together. It's almost impossible for me to remove Bob Johnson from the B0bcats considering he named them after himself.

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.
