Jordan says Charlotte Hornets "sounds good"

Charlotte, North Carolina. The city and state where a name change is the ultimate goal of sports fans. Winning is down the list.

He didn't play for the Hornets or Bobcats, so I know you don't know who the hell he is.

all he had to do was look at your sig....

I'm not making fun of anybody, in all seriousness. Besides KT I've always been more of a Russell fan than Chamberlain. I'm actually reading a new book about the 1957 Boston Celtics right now. But I digress.

The name isn't yet officially changed, and regardless, the team needs to cut ties with Diop, Mullens, Biyombo, Thomas, and Williams when the season ends.

If we're changing to an older name, I'd rather go with the Cougars. Better color scheme, better mascot, plus the double entendre in the name

I'd be pissed but I'd kind of laugh.

"We've decided to change our name to one that suits our basketball history, one that we've had before and had some success with...The Carolina Cougars."

Bismack isn't going anywhere, he was a project from the start that was going to take a while.

I think going back to the Hornets would be good idea, always liked the color scheme and got history with it. That said, while a name change won't suddenly make us a winning team or a contender, hopefully it will help spur some more support for the team, and in turn the ownership and management put a great team on the court for us.

I just hope we hear confirmation about is happening with the name one way or the other soon, I'm getting tired of the speculation surrounding it all.

    • If nothing else that would mean more kicker jobs as guys like Lloyd would be in demand as a kick off specialist.
    • im generally ok with individual consumers boycotting but tbh im a little annoyed with companies boycotting. these businesses aren't benevolent and boycotting doesn't make their product more pure or their mode of production more ethical. i mean hey big deal ncaa, you moved your games. you're not taking much of a hit there but you get your positive press for your incredibly shitty business. like ok cool you hate the dumb law, i do too. maybe pay your employees before trying to stake out the moral high ground though??? meanwhile the nba moves it's all star game to louisiana where the largely black prison population still picks cotton on "former" slave plantations. hb2 is so mind numbingly stupid that it's easy to oppose without fear of having to sacrifice meaningful profits. im saving praise for companies that oppose oppressive institutions that aren't easy or profitable to oppose.
