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.

I was wondering if we get the Bobby Phills rafter jersey back.

I'd be cool with being the Charlotte Hornets again. I'm interested in seeing if we'd keep our orange and blue colors or not.

Also, be prepared to go to Hornets games 5 years from now. You'll be seeing people wearing Bobcats gear, because fans love throwbacks.

I wouldn't say that. I believe you'd just be reading a media guide that said Emeka Okafor was the first draft pick in Charlotte Hornets history in 2004, and the Hornets' all-time playoff record is 0-4.

Whether NOLA gives us our history or not, we should still put up Phills, Bogues, Johnson, and Mourning in the rafters. Period. Can you imagine an opening game at the New Hive, with Hugo running out, those 3 guys in center court watching their jerseys go up? That place would be nuts.

In addition to the name change, they need to renegotiate a better TV deal for the Hornets because there are thousands of people who can't even watch the team if they want to. Any Charter customer doesn't get the games, and the games are blacked out for others. It's ridiculous to have a professional team in the Carolinas that you can't even watch on TV.

I supported the team, just not the name. It honestly took them getting rid of Bob Johnson for me to really, truly get involved with being a fan of the Bobcats.

People that hate the Bobcats, but will now love the Hornets confuse me. They probably aren't real sports fans to begin with.

It's the same product. But what you're saying will be kinda weird trying to find all the links and sorting out the confusion. But ya know what? who cares. Most of the bobcat years are years we wanna forget about anyway!

They're not going to keep the orange/blue colors unless we have a "throwback" game in a couple years.

One reason they changed the colors/court scheme this year is it will make a transition easier to the teal and purple.

It belongs here. It's a part of Charlotte sport history. A very sad part, of course, but a part nonetheless.

KT on suicide watch?


The dude really showed his ass, and his true colors for that matter, last year and during the summer when the rebrand really started to gain some momentum.
