The Bobcats have young talent and will continue to get young talent through the draft, FA, and trades. Cho is really good at building a team so I'm not worried.

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.


If we can rebrand the Hornets, everyone will forget about the BOBCATS.

Sure it's the same players, but a new IDENTITY, logo, colors, etc. Its all about the CULTURE and history of the HORNETS. Players will want to come play here bc of the history behind it.

I'm setting my hopes higher than some of y'all, but I would not rule out a CP3 to Charlotte. Wouldn't it be nice for him to have the ability to come play for his home state and his sponsor MJ? Wouldn't he look amazing again in the HORNETS unis, just this time in Charlotte.

The name CHARLOTTE HORNETS will be able to attract a lot of players. Not just that it'll be one of the best selling accessories/gears.

If we can land a or some very good talents in the upcoming draft, I trust Cho to work the FA hugely to bring in players.

I'm as Pro Hornets as anyone here. In fact I am going to wear my Charlotte Hornets hat every time I leave the house until it is announced that the B*****s are going to be the Hornets again. That said, CP3 is not coming to play here. He bullied his way out of New Orleans because he is in the new school of superstars joining big market teams together.

That said I do believe that changing the name will re energize the franchise a little bit. After all what does the name Bobcats make you think of? To me it's orange vomit colored uniforms and embarrassingly bad basketball.

Yea like I said I'm just having hopes on Cp3. But some better players will want to come here

Why would players want to come here if we change our mascot?

IMO NBA players care about money, winning championships and maybe being in a larger market. Changing our mascot changes none of that.

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

Let Jordan get out there with a Hornets jersey because we all know he wanted to stay in the Carolina's :cool:

I knoe it's kind of confusing and hard to explain but what do you think of when you think of the Bobcats???? Losers.

What about the Hornets? All the history and great years behind it.

Trust me, it'll bring success just by the name and logo.

For example, you move the Patriots franchise to Jacksonville and that team with Gabbert will still be respected bc the name is above another level. The name itself will attract players to come play there, etc

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 was at the game Wendsday and there was maybe a thousand people there. It's pretty obvious the city is not behind the bobcats.

I'd be willing to bet there are more people at the checkers game tonight.
