Mike Conley scores 20 as Grizzlies down Hornets for 8th straight win Associated Press

CHARLOTTE, N.C. -- Mike Conley scored 20 points and the Memphis Grizzlies beat the Charlotte Bobcats 94-87 on Saturday night for their eighth consecutive victory.

Zach Randolph added 18 points and 12 rebounds, and three other players scored in double figures for the Grizzlies, who own the NBA's best record at 8-1. Rudy Gay had 16 points and Marc Gasol and Tony Allen scored 12 apiece.

Memphis led by as many as 17 points in the fourth quarter.

Byron Mullens scored 18 points and Kemba Walker added 17 for the Bobcats, who cut the Grizzlies' lead to five points three times in the final period, the last at 92-87 on Bismack Biyombo's dunk with 13 seconds remaining.

Charlotte had won three straight.

We could be the team that every fan cheers for due to the product on the court and not the jerseys we wear, or the name we sport.

I would rather win a championship and be called the Charlotte Ponderosa Pines than have a better sounding name and never win anything. A name means absolutely nothing. Then again, if I COULD win and still have a name I like, why not?

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.

Even the people that want the Hornets name (like me) would rather win... But, the great thing is that changing the name won't stop them from winning.

The New Orleans team's new colors are Navy, Gold and Red = ugly, perhaps the ugliest uniforms in the NBA.

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..

    • I honestly thought this was going to be a McCaffery thread. 
    • I would give anything to have 23 year old Jonathan Stewart on our Roster.. as years have gone by, I feel his potential has been wasted behind DeAngelo Williams, who in his own right was a beast for us in his prime..    As we wait eagerly and impatiently for our pick, let us remember and appreciate the beast that stewart was..( still is) ..   He was so explosive..  bouncy...  flexible.. powerful.. fast...      BEAST...  I became a fan in 2003 because I won a panther football in 1st grade at the end of that year for good behavior and learning my 1st grade stuff.. the following year..  I watched them in the Super Bowl in 2004... became a fan,, in my childhood, i grew and grew on them.. it solidified in 2008 when i watched double trouble GAPE the Bucs Live.. my first Panthers game.. what a night to solidify my fandom.. i received monday night tickets as a gift for getting all A's my 8th grade year...   since, ive seen a Panther great leave in DeAngelo.... but Stewart remained..   (some deangelo Highlights remain.. its OK, hes a panther great *turned sour*    but non the less)         i had SO MUCH PRIDE in our run game...  every madden i owned i made sure double trouble had their share...   and then there was Stewart.. the young, bouncy, fast guy... he turned tough...  he turned into a vet... a MoFo who will take YOU OUT.. carrying our ROCK along with CAM...     and Then, the best Expirience we have all experienced......    #2015     And i had so much pride, FINALLY.... Stewart was recognized......             A recoil year in 2016...            And I really believe there is a revival in 2017 of double trouble.......    #Fournette   except there isnt a dead roster... we have a Loaded roster, that will WIN...  winning with Cam Newton...  Stewart.. and ....         Let the Carolina GAPING run game live on folks...  I love the PAnthers like all of you... heres to 2017.
