Looks like they may push a rebrand though this offseason

I also heard a rumor that Bob Johnson called and advised Tom Benson that he should consider rebranding the Hornets into the......... TOMCATS

Ironic that Spirit is the name that was originally chosen for the Charlotte basketball team before a public poll changed it to Hornets.

I wonder if they are taking into account Shinn's feelings during the rebrand.

It's Benson's team let him do what he wants....same with MJ (until he sells it)

New Orleans has to rip off all our names. That's fine. Now "Hornets" will be available. Shitstorm coming from KT in 3...2...

FYI Shinn has went on record saying moving the team from Charlotte was a mistake.

He also is a born again christian now since his prostate cancer.

Shinn could of ran for mayor when he brought the team to Charlotte and probably won. It ended very poorly with him here and he should serve as an example for major business people bringing their services here of how quickly things can change. He was a helluva lot worse than Bob Johnson, but Johnson started out on the wrong foot here and was never able to recover. At least Bob was smart enough to jump ship from the titanic.

We all make mistakes and no one is perfect. Glad to hear Shinn is doing okay and if he really wanted to mend some fences here he should help with the Hornets rebrand. At least be an advocate of it.

I get what your saying, but I seriously doubt Shinn advocating for a name change could do anything but hurt the chances of it happening.
