Will Charlotte ever take the Hornets name back now that NOLA is changing their name?

I know it would cost a lot to re brand and all that, but i think it would be great for the city of charlotte.

It's going to happen after the season, before the Draft. MJ isn't dumb.

MJ is going to make more in return by rebranding.

call me superstitious but can we not be so over confident that it will happen. Don't want to jinx it.

I'm curios as to when's the soonest they can become the hornets. Could they change over this off season since the name is already owned by the league and still has merchandise and so forth.

Seems they could fast track the deal and let the bobcats become the hornets the upcoming year

I think they will do it in the 2014 offseason. I have no evidence, but I think that makes the most sense. Unless MJ is tired of the attendance and merch sales and hopes/thinks that a rebrand will bring more $ next year. However, as far as a brand goes, I think it would be best to wait until we have a competitive team (2014-15 season) before rebranding. You don't want even a single season of crappiness to be stuck with a brand.

Difference between the Bobcats and the Hornets is the Hornets actually have history where as the Bobcats are just meh...

I see what you're saying though even if I want the Hornets back in Charlotte

Considering currently the bobcats only average just over 7000 on tv viewership (partially due to crappy contracts) and are dead last in merchandise sales. I don't see how a name change could hurt even without the history.
