I see no harm in changing the team's name to something that means Charlotte. The Hornets name has history, to the city. The name Bobcats name was due to an issue the previous owner had with his own ego. Nobody except Bob Johnson and his son ever liked the darn thing.
If it doesn't happen and the team remains the Bobcats, I won't loose any sleep.
Still, there are more people who would love to see the Hornets brand return than people who could give a fuging poo if the Bobcats brand left.

i think MJ would be foolish not to go after the name now.. with all the fans writing petitions for it and such.. especially now that the team is coming together and exciting and winning.. we need to rid ourselves of the "Laughing stock Bobcats" aura..
