Jordan Officially Interested In Changing Name to Hornets

83 posts in this topic

It's us from Greensboro/Statesville/Rock Hill who keep fan support for the Panthers decent, and who'll still support the Bobcats/Hornets when you Charlotteans get tired of them again. Anyways, it's looking like this will happen. Guess ill have to get some new gear

I was just thinking about how much I can't wait to be able to call the stadium "The Hive" again assuming we get the name back. Such a better atmosphere. I also can't wait to get Super Hugo back to Charlotte. He just doesn't look right in that Gold crap.

I understand why we all would be thrilled to have the team name Hornets back. My question is why in the world would this cause fans to suddenly show up? Its the same exact product. I was a Charlotte Hornets fan. I was at Charlotte Bobcats fan. If this team were the Charlotte terds I would still pull hard for them. Im as excited as anyone to get the Hornets back(if we do) bc of the history, but im confused at the fans who said they showed up to watch the Hornets but not the Bobcats bc of the ownership and other reasons. Hornets=Bobcats. Bobcats=Hornets. Either way, why would a name influence a fans decision to come to games or not?

People refusing to support a team because of their name........... only the Charlotte local sports "fanbase" could fathom up a "cause" so pathetic and stupid.

That said, if we do take back the Hornets name they better keep it retro and not use that crappy logo and jersey changes that have happened since they've been in NOLA

Also the statistics are gonna be awkward as hell. If we take back Hornets...is Dell Curry the all time 3pt shooter for the Pelicans or the Charlotte Hornets? Will we negotiate just the Charlotte history part and they keep the NO Hornets part? Combine that with the Bobcats current history, essentially wiping out probably every team record? Or if they don't give us anything we won't be able to really associate with the 90s Hornets past the name I'd imagine, no Muggsy LJ Zo footage on the jumbotron opening night.

When Okafor comes to town do you still say he's the teams first ever draft pick? Or sit through the long winded explanation they will have to make every game when talking about different player connections to our team.

Definitely gonna be a weird process if it happens.

From what I understand, regardless of where the Hornets name ends up, the history of the franchise stays in New Orleans with the Pelicans. We would just be getting a name.

fug New Orleans and the NBA. If the name comes back then we should also have claim to the records from 1988-2002 and 2004-present. The Cleveland Browns kept their records, so should Charlotte.
