Hornets

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.

MJ could wait til 2014 but what if charlotte isnt the only franchise looking at obtaining the Hornets name. Stranger poo has happened.

In his fan Q&A on the Bobcats' website, Jordan said they're making every effort to explore rebranding possibilities. He said many people told him they want the Hornets name back, while a good number wanted to keep the bobcats and some "even wanted us to be named something other than Hornets or Bobcats."

I have difficulty believing this. No link, too tired to look for it but a quick trip to nba.com/bobcats will get you to "Chairman's Corner," where it's included.

I also have difficulty believing this. From what I've seen/heard the number of people wanting the name Hornets is at least 10 - 1 outnumbering the pro B**cats people.
