Jordan Brand is dropping some exciting new apparel 04.17.13....

Oh, and strangely enough, 04.17. is the date of both the 'Cats AND Hornets final games of the season.
Probably just a coincidence.

I want to say that it's a sign the Hornets are returning, but he's probably just taking advantage of the Beelievers
As opposed to the Beliebers, a much larger and more ridiculous cult following

it says "Flight" Hornet colors with a new name in Flight would mean Jordan doesnt have to buy the Hornet name from Benson. I hope that doesnt happen though.
he doesn't have to buy the name from Benson, now. Stern and the NBA said it is a flat $3 million rebrand fee.
It's to the point where I'm tired of talking about it. Jordan needs to either do it or close the door on it for good.
I do think he is thinking about a rebrand though - but it's going to be what Mike wants to call it no matter what the surveys or polls reflect.
And to be honest, I'd be cool with another name. I prefer the Hornets name but the name "Bobcats" has been bad from the start. Nobody in this town cares about the bobcats. Unless "your" Knicks/Celtics/Heat/Lakers are playing against them. Look what happened when the Heat played here a week ago and they sat everybody. The public outcry was that the "fans" bought tickets to see LeBron and company and now they didn't get to see them. Nobody was excited that the bobcats were on National TV and had a legitimate chance for a win. LOL.

Flight sounds like a WNBA team name.

So does the okc thunder. Bobcats sound like a high school squad
I mean I don't know why this is such a hard concept to understand...people in this city do not care about the bobcats.
The brand has been a complete failure and should be taught to prospective business students as a model of what someone should not do when launching a business.
Like I said earlier, when the Heat came here a week ago and they announced they were resting everyone...the people who were dumb enough to pay face value for Bobcats' tickets were so pissed because they couldn't see LeBron and D-Wade kick the home team's ass by 60 points. No one cared that the Bobcats were going to be on national TV and had a good chance of earning an elusive "W" .....this should tell you every thing you need to know about the team's "brand" in this city.
I've been to 3 bobcats games this year. Including floor level 6 rows up (magic game 2 weeks ago). Best seats I've had at a bobcats game ever. I've paid a total of $12 for all three tickets combined this year.
