Well, I guess this thread is relegated to "NBA Talk" despite the fact that this is an article based on, about, and regarding our Charlotte franchise and one of our minority owners...

So, I'm posting this here because a couple of douches' vaginas get all itchy if someone speaks negatively about our beloved BOBcats. We'll see who the true fans are if a rebrand does happen, and it'll be hilarious.

Anyway, here are some awesome quotes:

“Personally, I love (the idea of bringing the Hornets name back to Charlotte) because Bobcats was named for Bob Johnson,” Sabates said. “I’m surprised we didn’t call them the Johnsoncats.”


WHAT A WHITE DEVIL RACIST! LMAO...

Bobcats executives have said they will consider the possibility if and when Benson closes on his purchase of the New Orleans franchise and if he follows through on his vow to change names.


Didn't know they actually did this, but, if so, great... I actually wonder if MJ gave Sabates the OK to put this out there, as it won't be as frowned upon if a minority owner talks about the rebrand compared to an executive front office type.

Here's the article in its entirety: http://www.bizjourna...in-hornets.html

I only support nicknames!! -signed KT

It is funny, for all the uproar about the nickname, during the press conference about re-assigning Paul Silas the executives during that 30 minute press conference referred to it exclusively as "the franchise". So if they do re-brand I hope certain people will understand that it is about the franchise, not the nickname.

Hey Sabates is big time money talking here. One of the richest people in Charlotte. He has some money invested in the team.

It's gonna happen guys.

Sabates is such a Euro-Anglo Saxon, just look at his name. He should shut his spoiled mouth, Bob Johnson doesn't owe him anything...

Err... Wait.

Huh?

Bob Johnson isn't the owner anymore?

Oh, MJ is?

Is that right?

How long has it been this way?

*turns to BET for kicks and nostalgia*

Hey Diddy keep that bullshit out of the real NBA forum and take it back to the bobcats cesspool. This is for the real fans.

When you have owners speaking out on this it's a great sign for the movement.

I think everyone in the area knows it's a good idea to rebrand. More money for the owners and a better time for the fans!
