Any fellow members on here want a Michael Kidd-Gilchrist or Kemba Walker (Charlotte Hornets) jersey as much as I do?? I cant wait!! I know it'll happen soon.

The Hornets (name, logo, colors) will bring so much energy and vibes back into the city of Charlotte. I cant wait to get me some Hornets gears!

I would love it. I think they should change back to the Hornets and at the opening game of next season they should bring back as many Charlotte Hornets players as possible for some kind of ceremony.

I agree!!!!!

I know MJ will make it happen. It'll happen before the Draft.

I can't wait to see our Hornets name and hat at the Draft Lottery and on Draft night!

I can't wait to see MKG/Kemba names on the back of a Hornets jersey.

I also can't wait to see a rookie (Zeller, Noel, Len, Shabazz, McLemore, etc) in it.

Going to be incredibly crazy!

There has to be a lot of festivities with Charlotte getting the Hornets name back. I'd love for part of it to be a Hornets reunion game. Get like Curry, Mugzy, Zo, Mason, b-Diddy and anybody else that wants to come

Will be a short lived buzz (pun intended) if they do not upgrade the level of talent/play on this team.

The only thing that matters is winning.

The team name and colors are meaningless.

i agree to some extent- if we make the name change and have another offseason with no name FAs and a miss in the draft pick dept- we will still be a joke of the league..

but if we get McLemore or Len and another PF/C and win maybe .500 of our games.. it will be a huge story

I think a lot has to do with the name. Maybe I'm just thinking over my head but the Bobcats have been so bad. No one wants to come play for the "BOBCATS". This name attracts little attention.

Changing the name back to the HORNETS, it brings fresh winning air back. Even though we'll still be with the same roster, more stars may want to come play for this organization. Bc it's the CHARLOTTE HORNETS and owned by MJ.

I agree that a rebrand to Hornets might help wipe off some off the stink that is the 'Bobcats' name. But won't mean a thing without solid talent. If we could pull off a draft day hit, with both are current number ones, and maybe sign a decent big and become a competitive team, you might see Time Warner fillup and rival the Hive.

    • Could be. Hope to be.  I see the big time potential in both. In my opinion-The biggest obstical I see (not only with them but in many young players) is their self confidence. Taking it from "flashing" to "breaking out" or "to the next level" is an imaginary obstacle that stands in the way of a lot of players with potential. To get over the hump, it can take a play, a game or a season to get their mind right with the confidence that they can perform at another level.  KB and Funch have good coaching and all the skills necessary to be the guy, but in the end, they are human too. Most won't admit but the majority of people perform in a "fake it till you make it" environment so to speak.   Lack of confidence or conversely, proving to yourself you can do it, is not only important to the average Joe like you and I but to them as well.  Some guys get over the hump and exceed their own expectations enough to where it becomes standard practice. Others never quite get that bit of confidence or courage to take it one step above their self imposed ceiling.  Im optimistic so I think these two guys can break through. We will certainly have a good read on their direction this season.  PS- Did I use enough quotations?
